I write because I had no voice growing up.

I write because I had no voice growing up. I write because I didn’t see myself reflected – lesbian, feminist, rape & torture survivor – yet books helped save me. I write to help others know they are not alone & it can get better. I write to have a voice.#WhyIWrite #BelieveSurvivors

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
