Rowena Cherry's Biography

Member Info

Bloomfield Township
Aug 2008

I'm unreliably psychic --by which I mean that I occasionally know things that no one expects me to know. I have exceptionally good hearing, an eye for detail, and a near-photographic memory. And, I've lurked and observed from some of the world's most glamorous and privileged vantage points.

Of course, I am also incredibly discreet! (Grin)

I've played chess in an exhibition match in the stately home of a Lord, and duplicate bridge for money (disastrously) in Marbella, dined aboard a sheikh's yacht in the Puerto Jose Banus, and received the gold level of the Duke of Edinburgh's Gold Award inside Buckingham Palace, I'm a member of ancient Cambridge University where I studied for my four-year "good combined honors" degree in English and Education, and I've taught the daughters of aristocrats and rock stars at exclusive boarding schools, first in Dorset, then in London.

I've lived the glamorous life of a corporate alien abroad, and I've been driven around the racetrack ahead of the field in pace cars at the Indy 500 and Brickyard 400, picked the brains of rocket scientists and rock stars….and much more.

My life so far has been fantastic inspiration for romance novel scenes and alien-world building.
