Cheryl Robinson was born in Detroit, Michigan. She graduated from Cass Technical High School and went on to obtain her Bachelor of Science in Marketing from Wayne State University. As a student at Wayne State, she took a fiction writing course as an elective and earned an A in what would soon become her favorite subject. She also entered a writing contest, for which she wrote a novel, Blue's Bottom, in less than a week, without any revisions, and received honorable mention along with a check for fifteen dollars. It was then that she wondered if, with more time and focus, her dream of creating memorable characters could perhaps flourish into a career.
After graduating from college, Cheryl held various jobs before accepting a position with Chrysler Financial and later Mercedes-Benz Credit. Each promotion brought her to a new locale from Syracuse, New York to Overland Park, Kansas; Keller, Texas; and Orlando, Florida. While these positions provided financial stability, her desire to write fiction remained. Every night and weekend, she worked on her first novel, Memories of Yesterday, which she initially self-published in 2001. Her second novel, When I Get Free, is a novel inspired by true events in the life of an anonymous ex-con, and it is the book that was responsible for her securing a literary agent. Memories of Yesterday was later picked up by New American Library (NAL), an imprint of Penguin Books, and released in 2004 under the title If It Ain't One Thing.
For the past seventeen years, she has been busy writing contemporary women’s fiction.
For NAL, Cheryl wrote six novels: If It Ain’t One Thing, It’s Like That, Sweet Georgia Brown, In Love with a Younger Man, When I Get Where I’m Going, and Remember Me. Cheryl is now an independent author and the owner of Rose Colored Books. With her company, she has published The One, Like Mom, and the Until Ray trilogy.
Cheryl currently resides in Florida.

Until Ray is my first trilogy, and I put every ounce of my imagination into it. I always strive to create realistic characters that I genuinely hope readers will enjoy. I invite you to take this decades-long journey with Sarita and Ray. Please feel free to contact me and share your thoughts about the trilogy. I love receiving feedback.
