About Me

Hi there, thank you for visiting my website. A little about me:

Sheri Hoyte headshot

My name is Sheri Hoyte. 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 worked in the corporate world for over thirty years, honing my business and professional writing skills until 2012, when my passion for stories called me home to Reader Views, an online publicity company for authors. Over the next couple of years I read and reviewed books for Reader Views, becoming the editor and social media manager in 2014. I am now one of the managing editors and partners of Book by Book Publicity, which runs Reader Views, Reader Views Kids, Inside Scoop Live and First Chapter Plus.

Working with so many authors over the years has reignited my own zest to create and I am currently planning my first picture book story as well as doing research for a historical fiction novel set in the 1930s in Lake Placid, New York.

I live in Austin, Texas with my husband Don and our two cats, Felix and Fred.  Most of my time I spend reading, writing or scouring the web on social media. I enjoy spending time outdoors, exercising, playing golf, walking, doing yoga, and gardening.
