Sherry D. Ramsey is a writer, editor, publisher, creativity addict and self-confessed Internet geek. She writes for all ages, and she loves mysteries and magic as much as she loves spaceships and aliens–so much that she often smooshes them together in interesting ways. Sherry lives in Nova Scotia, Canada with her husband, children, and dogs, where she consumes far more coffee and chocolate than is likely good for her.
A hybrid author, Sherry works both independently and with traditional presses. Her books include three books in the Nearspace series from Tyche Books; the urban fantasy Olympia Investigations series; two books for middle-grade readers, The Seventh Crow and Planet Fleep: A Science Twins Adventure; and the slightly difficult to classify (although it definitely has magic!) The Murder Prophet, as well as two collections of short stories.
With her partners at Third Person Press she has co-edited six anthologies of regional short fiction. Every November she disappears into the strange realm of National Novel Writing Month and emerges gasping at the end, clutching something resembling a novel. A member of the Writer’s Federation of Nova Scotia Writer’s Council, Sherry is also a past Vice-President and Secretary-Treasurer of SF Canada, Canada’s national association for Speculative Fiction Professionals.

The Seventh Crow
“A fun adventure fantasy…a great choice for middle grade students.”
When you can’t remember most of your life, you’d better be prepared for anything. The day a talking crow meets her on the way home from school, fourteen-year-old Rosinda is plunged into a forgotten world filled with startling revelations: magic ability flows in her veins, she’s most comfortable with a sword in her hand, and the responsibility for finding a missing prince rests solely with her.
While dark forces hover in the background and four forgotten war gods from Earth’s past plot to reclaim long-lost power, Rosinda struggles with waves of slowly-returning memories as she searches for clues about her past and the true identity of her family; a search that takes her back and forth between two worlds. In a race against time to recover her memory, find the prince, and rescue her loved ones, Rosinda has only her friend Jerrell and an unusual trio of animals as companions. And as the gods prepare to bring her world to war, Rosinda is unaware that the shadow of betrayal lurks within one whom she trusts the most…
“This fantasy is a quick-paced adventure from beginning to end. A walk home turns to a trip to a new world for Rosinda, where her memories, long suppressed, begin to reawaken. Led by a crow and joined by a boy, a cat, and a wolf, Rosinda sets out to save her Aunt and to reclaim her memories. What she finds is more than she ever imagined. YA readers will love this quick fantasy.”
