Sheryl J. Anderson

Sheryl J. Anderson’s childhood ambition was to be a novelist. In college, her love of theatre led her to study playwriting. After graduation, she set her sights on television, writing first for comedies (series such as Parker Lewis Can’t Lose and Dave’s World), and then for dramas (such as Charmed, Flash Gordon, When Calls the Heart). She created and executive produced Ties That Bind, the first original scripted series for UPtv, and has sold pilots to a variety of networks, including Disney, SyFy, and Lifetime.


Throughout this journey, the desire to write a novel never went away, leading to the Molly Forrester novels, a series of mysteries in which Sex and the City meets Murder, She Wrote. These Manhattan murder mysteries—Killer Heels, Killer Cocktail, Killer Deal, Killer Riff—blend all the things Sheryl loves most: comedy, dramatic intrigue, and snappy dialogue.
