Born in India, Cherry lived in several towns all over India, ranging from the foothills of Darjeeling to the Western Ghats and towns of the Thar Desert to the Himachal hills where she explored the many small towns and villages.
She pursued studies in English and French literature, followed by ten years based in New Delhi, in an airline career that took flight to France for several professional training programs.
Cherry moved to Brampton, Canada, 25 years ago and it has been home ever since. Fortunate to continue with her field of work in aviation for the next two decades, until a mass layoff took her back to school to pursue a paralegal program.
Her urge to write was rekindled while researching legal cases. She published her first book in December 2020, titled Nona and Daniel – Taming the Monkey, which is dedicated to all grandparents.
Cherry believes that one thing constant in life is ‘learning’, and life can be continuously enriched, without a single dull moment, by taking a flight to read and learn. CHERRY
