Hi there, thanks for visiting!

I’m Sheri Hoyte and I am an aspiring picture book author. Reading and writing have always been a large part of my life, ever since childhood. Writing a book of ABC’s as an elementary school project set the course for my future, though it would take decades to realize. As a child, I always had a book in my hand and a pile of books waiting to be read.  Not much has changed.

I’m in what I like to call the research stage of my journey – blogging my way through 500 picture books, taking a few writing courses, and reading everything I can get my hands on about the art of writing for children. It’s been an exciting journey so far. I hope you’ll join me.

For now my posts include picture book reviews, regular book reviews (as in books for grown-ups), and my writing journey. As I progress along the path of becoming a published author I hope to share some of my writing with you.

Picture book authors: If you’d like a review of your picture book, please check out my review policy page. I’d love to read as many of your books as I can!

“And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.”
