Short biography
With the economy the way it is, I think it's more important than ever that readers aren't misled by a hard sell from authors, so I like to share my personal mission statement.

My goal as an author is to give good value. I expect to provide my readers with six to eight hours of amusement, a couple of really good laughs, a romantic frisson or two from the sensual scenes, a thoroughly satisfying Happy-Ever-After, something to think –or talk--about when the book is finished.

The paperback books in my "god-Princes of Tigron" series are

#1. Forced Mate ISBN 978-0-505-52601-4

#2. Insufficient Mating Material, ISBN 978-0-505-52711-0
Recent winner of the 2008 Hollywood Book Festival's Romance category

#3. KNIGHT’S FORK ISBN 978-0-505-52740-0
Recent winner of the pnr reviewers' "Top Pick for September 2008", and of a LASR "Readers' Choice Book of the Week"

All my titles are chess puns.

Rowena Cherry has played chess with a Grand Master and former President of the World Chess Federation (hence the chess-pun titles of her alien romances).
She has spent folly filled summers in a Spanish castle; dined on a sheikh's yacht with royalty; been seranaded (on a birthday) by a rockstar and an English nobleman; ridden in a pace car at the 1993 Indy 500; received the gold level of the Duke of Edinburgh's Award; and generally lived on the edge of the sort of life that inspires her romances about high-living alien gods.
