A Writer's Journey: Author Cheryl Snell

Come by ChickLitGurrl: high on LATTES & WRITING to check out the featured author for June, Cheryl Snell!

About Shiva's Arms

When Alice marries Ramesh, she is plunged into a battle of wills with her mother-in-law. Namesake of a god, Amma reigns over Alice's household until a family secret is revealed that costs the old woman everything. Now it is up to Alice to heal the rift, as Shiva’s Arms evolves into an exploration on cultural identity, the power of reconciliation, and the meaning of home.

During the interview, I asked Cheryl, If there were one author you could sit down and spend an hour with talking about writing, who would it be...and why? to which she replied: "Flannery O’Connor. I admire her contradictions, the way she flirted with disgust in her grotesques, her fanciful love of peacocks -- and I’d really like to know how she managed to write so steadily with Damocle’s sword over her head. Lupus is such a vicious condition."
