Developing her own book review blog in 2009, Cheryl quickly became the go to person for publishers and book tour companies who wanted honest, credible and fair reviews of their authors’ books.
Best-selling author Vincent Zandri has said of Cheryl, “…she has her finger on the pulse of what’s new, what’s hot and, on occasion, what’s not. And her blog’s ever growing popularity reflects her talents.” [LinkedIn]
Publisher Lou Aronica, founder of The Story Plant, describes her: “Cheryl does excellent work with tremendous passion and commitment. She deals with a lot of moving parts and she never loses track of anything. I strongly recommend her.” [LinkedIn]
Focusing on her favorite genre of mystery and thrillers, Cheryl’s blog grew rapidly and soon became a full-time job, with requests for reviews coming thick and fast, being recognized by the industry for the profile it was giving their authors. The skill and ability that Cheryl puts into the organizational side of blogging, coupled with the quality of reviews meant that authors, publisher and publicists soon became repeat ‘customers’.
She joined Partners In Crime Tours in June 2011. In July of 2012, Cheryl became Owner/CEO of the company and she brings her skills and wealth of knowledge to those authors on tour, helping to make each one she is involved with, the perfect virtual experience.

I knew the book world was in trouble when I went to Virginia Beach as a teen and wanted to stay in the hotel room to finish my book! It’s been a reading frenzy ever since.
I love a very wide range of books from light Mystery, Romance, Chick-Lit, Historical Fiction to even Non-fiction!
I started my book blog – Wall-to-wall books in 2009. I had been blogging before that and just throwing in a book review now and then. I decided I loved book reviewing and made the switch to a “Book Blog” and haven’t regretted it for a second.
I was asked to join the wonderful team that is Partners in Crime a few years ago. I wasn’t too sure, I had never done anything like this before, but I thought I would give it a try. Now I can’t imagine ever quitting! I love this team and I love working for this company!
