Virtual Tour Stop | Buzzin’ about with Sheryl Lister @1slynne


She’s serious about her craft….

What aspect of writing brings you the most joy?

What brings me the most joy is typing ‘the end’. It gives me such a feeling of accomplishment. A close second is hearing from readers. I absolutely delight in the emails and messages I receive and it encourages me to keep going.

If you had to do this all over again, would you change anything?

My initial thought was that I wish I would’ve done this twenty years ago, when shared that first story with my mother. But, the more I thought about, the more I realized I wouldn’t change anything about this journey. I believe all my life experiences have helped me craft better stories. It’s all about God’s timing.

But she’s also very personable and humorous…

What makes you laugh?

Sunday dinners with the family. Some of the silly conversations we have keep us at the table and laughing for at least an hour.

Mention some incidents when you laughed at yourself?

I laugh at myself every time I’m yelling at the computer because I can’t find a document I know I saved, then find it exactly in the folder I put it in…so I wouldn’t forget.

If you were given you one million dollars how would you spend it?

I would probably spend it on rehabbing an old closed hotel and turning it into transitional housing for the homeless.

About the Book



He’s got all the right moves 

Omar Drummond is a pro football superstar with a body that’s a pure work of art. But Morgan Gray is forbidden to act on their chemistry, or repeat their impulsive kiss. Proving her worth as a sports agent means securing the notorious celebrity as a client, not a lover. Yet between flowers, sweet notes and heady hotel interludes, Omar is shamelessly seducing her…

Other agents—and exes—have tried using Omar as a meal ticket, and he’s closed himself off from emotional entanglements. With Morgan, it’s a whole new playbook. Smart and tough, she can negotiate a contract and turn him on all in one go, and he craves more. But in matters of trust, he’s just fumbled badly. To win her, he has to show her the man he can be away from the pitch and the limelight, and hope that this time they’re both playing for keeps.
