Not even Cheryl Wyatt’s closest friends would dream that this sweet, shy intercessor plots mayhem during announcements at church. She is a Registered Nurse turned stay-at-home-mom, wife and writer who loves Jesus with all of her heart.
Joyful chaos rules her home, and she delights in the stealth moments God gives her to write. She stays active in her church and in her laundry room. She is convinced that having been born on a Naval base on Valentines Day destined her to write Inspirational Military Romance.
Cheryl loves to laugh and to make others laugh, so she often plans comedic moments for her defenseless characters in spite of their grumbling. She says it’s payback for when they refuse to obey the plots she’s set out before them.
Prior to publication, six of Cheryl’s manuscripts placed in ten RWA Contests. Two of Cheryl’s stories also placed First in ACFW’s Noble Theme Contest 2005 (Contemporary Romance Category), as well as ACFW‘s Genesis Contest 2006 (Mystery/Suspense/Thriller Category).
She took writing courses through Jerry Jenkins’ Christian Writers Guild and Longridge Writers Institute of Children’s Literature, and she has been previously published in non-fiction (poetry, devotionals).
She currently writes for Love Inspired, HarperCollins Christian Publishing, Zondervan imprint, Redbud Press and more. Her stories can be purchased anywhere books are sold.
I wish this to be a Haven
Where weary souls can rest
I offer it up as a fragrance
King of my heart, be blessed.
I commit my works and my seasons
Love of my heart, You’re the reason
This precious gift, though I treasure
Sweet Lord, it could never measure
Love bursting through seams of my soul
For Mercy, Who made me whole
As Mary of Bethany poured perfume
My vial of my words, I offer You
May the minister Truth to
Readers, and spell worship to You.
