After graduating from the famed Cass Technical High
School, native Detroiter Cheryl Robinson headed for D.C. where
she attended Howard University for two years before returning to Detroit
to complete her business degree from Wayne State University. It was at
Wayne State where she discovered her passion for writing when a last
minute decision to enroll in a fiction writing class opened Cheryl's
imagination for creating memorable characters.
Two more book deals followed; one with HarperCollins Publishing company for the anthology These Are My Confessions in which Cheryl penned the novella Strapped, which will be released in July 2007 and another novel with Penguin (NAL) entitled Sweet Georgia Brown, which will be released in December 2007.
Aside from Detroit, Cheryl has also had the opportunity to live in Syracuse, Kansas City, Dallas, and Orlando, but so far her novels have all been set in the city that she knows the best--Detroit.

I Get Free
Theodore 'Tower' Evans is smart, clever, and always one step ahead of the game. Under a different set of circumstances, he could have become a top executive at a Fortune 500 company or a successful entrepreneur. Instead, he became a statistic: one in three black men between the ages of twenty and twenty-nine under correctional supervision or control. He's sentenced to forty years in an Oklahoma state prison for drug trafficking. Ten years later, Tower is paroled and living in his hometown of Fort Worth, Texas, trying to adjust to the changes that have occurred in the world. The only problem: His mind is still on lockdown.
As the pressure of the outside mounts against Tower and the voices in his head begin to collide, his paranoia takes over. He trusts no one. Not Tonya, the evangelist who believes in spreading more than the good news to Tower. Not Gail, an aspiring writer who begins penning a novel based on Tower's life. Not Mary, his married parole officer whose possessiveness turns dangerous when she threatens to send him back to prison. The years Tower spent on the inside have taken away the hope that he needs to regain before his temper destroys his second chance.
When I Get Free is a novel inspired by the true events of an anonymous ex-con.
Porter Washington is a handsome Detroit Firefighter trying to live on
twenty-seven thousand dollars a year while struggling to provide the
materialistic lifestyle required of his longtime girlfriend, Reesey. When a lie
ends Porter's current relationship, he becomes confused and questions himself,
his sexuality, and the secrets that he buried with his brother.
