Sheri Bell-Rehwoldt is a very talented writer and also an online marketing specialist. That may be a key to why her books sell so well. She’s an awesome interviewee and I was blessed when she said she’d answer some questions for GotInterviews.com. Thanks Sheri. Now onto the interview. When did you first pick up a pen or pencil knowing you were going to create something other people would or should appreciate? Was it for fun? Was it a school assignment? Your question made me laugh! I didn’t “know” if people would appreciate my first newspaper or magazine article. I simply

Last year Rachelle critiqued one of my picture book manuscripts. After her help, I sent my requested revision back to the editor, a few months later, I found out it had gone to an acquisitions meeting with this major publisher, but it did not have enough support to be purchased. I credit Rachelle for helping my manuscript get that far, the closest I’ve ever come to selling a picture book. Today, she was nice enough to answer some questions for the readers of GotInterviews.com. It may be unknown to some people, but you are a very talented children’s entertainer. How
