About Kentbury

What If . . . 

there was a meeting place.

A virtual community where writers showcase their work and where those competing for those writers can find them.  

Writing since she was a child, Cheryl knows first-hand about the way things work in the world of publishing.


“Admittedly, my perspective comes more from that of the writer, but the publishers, agents and editors, those whose job it is to find the salable work, the next bestseller, have their own frustrations. The most common complaint is TIME.


“Kentbury was that momentary flash, inspiration if you will, that came to me one evening when I was searching an on-line site for a special wedding gift. I was sitting in a cozy chair, comfortable, having fun actually, and I thought about my own work, my writing.  Like so many new ideas and inventions, it began with…’What if?’”


“One of the beauties of Kentbury is its SIMPLICITY.  A place for the writers to showcase their work where it can be seen by those searching and browsing through the different genres. ”


Cheryl grew up in New Jersey, lived in six different countries and traveled the world accompanying her husband, a Foreign Service Officer with the U.S. State Department. 

“Living in exotic places, learning about different cultures and peoples, was not only wonderful, but provided rich fodder for any writer,” she likes to say.

“Now with Kentbury, I get to share that love of writing with others in the literary world.  We understand each other’s dreams, share goals, and the support and encouragement is awesome!”
