“Building upon the concept of the Venn diagram, Sherri Perry’s short stories and poetry explore the space, relationships, and situations where like and unlike intersect, revealing unexpected commonalities. Her touch is light, belying observations that strike right to the heart: a young girl whose beloved grandfather is “famous but only to me;” a wife and her mother-in-law joining forces to teach their son and grandson a lesson or two about obeying the rules; an adolescent boy’s first tailgate party leaves the reader chuckling over his brainlessness, right along with his parents. Interspersed throughout are poems calling out for solace, comfort, and praising the redemptive power of a New Orleans rainfall. An admirable collection from a dedicated author.”
Debra Darvick 'This Jewish Life, Stories of Discovery, Connection and Joy'
Venn, A Collection
"A refreshing, moving collection of fictional expressions that wraps your imagination through the innocence of life’s everyday moments! The perfect regime of engaging literature to stimulate the hearts, souls and minds of all who dare to dive in and take a swim into Perry’s ocean of storytelling.”

Letters to Cadence: Musings of a Modern Grandmother
"Reading Sherri Perry is like hopping in your grandaddy’s ‘54 Chevy and riding high into the sunset. Whether set inside a child’s hospital room, tornado alley, or the streets of a mega-city, her stories glitter.”
Stephanie Elizondo Griest- Around the Bloc: My Life in Moscow, Beijing, and Havana; My Life Between the Borderlines
"From the first line, from the first word of the opening story, "Broken," I was in the author's shoes every step of the way. Tears welled and dripped down my cheeks throughout the story, my heart profoundly touched. Sherri Perry, the obviously experienced and talented author, immediately drew me into the moment, such that I couldn't stop reading until the end."
Helen Boone, Amazon Reviewer
"Relieves me she wrote this book because I’ve thought for a long time about writing one for my daughter. Instead, I gave her this one. Full of wisdom and practical advice but with a twist."
