Profile Information


Cheryl Petro enjoys taking creative writing and grammar courses at the University of Calgary. She developed her passion for story telling after winning first place in a short story contest in grade three. Since then, she has written several magazine articles, poems, and full-length novels. Liquid Comfort will be her first novel published. She is 32 years old and lives in Alberta, Canada. ABOUT ME:

Although I grew up on the prairies, I consider myself a soul-surfer. I rode my first wave at Waikiki Beach when I was eight years old, and it quickly became one of my biggest passions. I visit the Hawaiian Islands regularly, spending most of my time on the North Shore of Oahu. I may not be a local, but the spirit of aloha lives in my heart. It is no secret that Liquid Comfort was inspired by my love of the ocean, however it is more than just a surf story. My greatest desire when I write is to infuse a story with culture, educate the reader on a topic, and teach a valuable life lesson along the way. Growing up on the streets when I was fifteen years old placed me in diverse situations. Liquid Comfort focuses on many of the issues I was forced to deal with such as drug and alcohol addiction, dead-beat parenting, tragedy and grief. Through these hardships I learned a great deal about what not to do and how to overcome adversity, and I hope to pass that on in my writing. I now run a successful business and home, and I am working on my next novel.
