Tell us about Earths in Space.
Earths in Space is outer space travel without the aliens. Instead, there are countless worlds filled with countless humans out there. Each “other Earth” hosts a unique civilization at a different stage in its development.
This is a series of episodic novellas, and Volume 1: Where Are the Little Green Men? contains the first two episodes as we begin to follow this colorful team of interstellar travellers.
The captain’s name is Amena, and she’s a whimsical realist who just wants everything to be amazing. Initially, she can’t wait to meet exotic aliens. She may be in for some disappointment…
What genre is it?
It’s science fiction, so expect lots of advanced technology. The crew travels in an octahedron-shaped vessel named after a historical figure, and among the crew is a genius inventor named Sela who comes up with all sorts of useful tools.
What kind of readers will it appeal to?
Readers who enjoy high-energy action and vibrant characters should have some fun with this. Part of the whole point is that people are interesting and varied, so expect a lot of focus on the characters, especially the regular cast.
Complete this sentence for us: if you like _________________, you’ll love Earths in Space.
Doctor Who. There’s no time-travel and no aliens, but a similar love of
exploration permeates the series, as well as finding amazingness in unexpected places.
How would you like the reader to feel as they read the last word of your book?
I hope they feel like they want more. (There will be more.)
Have you written any other books that we should read next?
Earths in Space is the first and right now the only. However, by the time most people read this interview, the first installment of my second e-book series should be out. It’s called RIP, and it’s a paranormal fantasy about a guy who can perceive ghosts with all five senses. He can touch and hurt them, but they can do the same to him. The basic idea is that stepping out of your comfort zone can leave you vulnerable, but it’s the only way to grow.
Tell us a bit about yourself.
I’ve been writing stories in some form or another since I was 9, and I’m now 29. I have a BA in English and Theatre, and I’ve written some plays that have been produced. I have over four years of Thai kickboxing training, and I once jumped out of an airplane, which was memorable.
Do you have a website where we can keep up with your work?
Yes, I recently launched my website, sherrierbooks.com. I sometimes post humorous columns there, as well as teasers from my books.
How can we follow you on Twitter and/or Facebook?
Facebook is the best way to keep up with me:

More Earths in Space and more RIP! I’ll prioritize whichever series seems to have more interest, so don’t be shy about letting me know.
