Kristy Sherrod has had a love of writing since a simple short story assignment was given to her in the 7th grade at Chester County Junior High School. She has been writing in multiple genres ever since. Her no-nonsense approach to writing focuses on a variety of topics, including personal essays, women’s equity, social justice, religion, travel, nature, and even local business reviews.  Kristy has taught literature, creative writing, technology, and law in her 15 years as an educator and currently works as an Instructional Coach at South Side High School with the Jackson-Madison County School System. She graduated in 2002 from Lambuth University, and holds two education graduate degrees from Freed-Hardeman University. Kristy also holds a Doctor of Education degree from the University of Southern California and is currently pursuing an MFA in Creative Writing at Sewanee School of Letters at The University of the South. She resides in Henderson, Tennessee, with her husband Chip and their pets, a rescue cat named Walter and a rambunctious Yorkie named Sophie Belle.
