Rowena Cherry

Heroines get more hero than they bargain for....


Rowena Cherry has played chess with a Grand Master and former President of the World Chess Federation (hence the chess-pun titles of her alien romances). She has spent folly filled summers in a Spanish castle; dined on a sheikh's yacht with royalty; been seranaded (on a birthday) by a rockstar and an English nobleman; ridden in a pace car at the 1993 Indy 500; received the gold level of the Duke of Edinburgh's Award; and generally lived on the edge of the sort of life that inspires her romances about high-living alien gods.

I write "racy, wildly entertaining futuristic romance" according to Writers Write.

My goal as an author is to give good value. I expect to provide my readers with six to eight hours of amusement, a couple of really good laughs, a romantic frisson or two from the sensual scenes, a thoroughly satisfying HEA, something to think--or talk-- about when the book is finished, and possibly some useful information.

All my titles are chess puns.

"Forced Mate" is from Pandolfini's term for a race between the two Kings to make a pawn his Queen.

In chess terminology "Insufficient Mating Material" is when the players realize that no matter how badly or well they play, no one will checkmate the other.

A "Knight's fork" is when two or more pieces are threatened simultaneously, and only one can be saved.

SPACE SNARK: Chess-inspired ("mating") titles. Gods from outer space. Sexy SFR. Poking fun, (pun intended). Shameless word-play.
