I am a writer, editor and event organizer living in Toronto, Canada.

Most of my literary work has focused on food, ranging from production and nutrition to restaurant news, reviews and profiles, and I have contributed to a variety of local and international publications. I am the author of Kitchen Party – Food Stories From Nova Scotia and Beyond and I run the micro-imprint Stained Pages Press.

On a personal level, I am a curmudgeon and a misfit. I’ve spent most of my life within various alternative sub-cultures (punk, goth, industrial), and am not especially interested in mainstream music, sports or celebrity culture.

Rather I find joy and delight in the odd, quirky or downright bizarre. I am a supporter of small businesses, local artisans and creators, and the underdog in general.

As the “writer for hire” Sheryl, I am happy to customize my work to suit your small business needs. However this site is a collection of writings about whatever strikes my fancy, from food and fashion to politics and social issues.
