Cheri has worked in media for more than 20 years in one capacity or another. Her media years were spent mostly in broadcast radio; from being a live on-air radio host to creating and implementing engaging and effective marketing and promotional campaigns. Although no longer directly employed by any media cluster she still writes copy for a range of clients and does the occasional voiceover.
Having been a writer since childhood she was able to venture into most genres along the way, fine tuning her ability to write about anything; whether it's a technical manual, a company newsletter, killer ads or a hard core research piece, Cheri brings it to life with the passion of one who loves what they do. Publishing her first piece at the age of 7 yrs. old, Cheri discovered she could have a voice beyond the walls of her bedroom and realized "other people" were entertained by, and interested, in what she had to say. Writing has been her biggest passion and best friend ever since.
From Poetry to Politics there is no subject that she cannot find an interesting angle to write from. She does not endorse a specific political party and instead prefers to keep her work issue based. Currently she is simultaneously writing a non-fiction book (with a tandem screen-play) and a bedside poetry book.
In addition to being a diversely skilled freelance writer, Cheri works as a Marketing Director and Publicist for a variety of businesses across the country. By embracing and including today's Social Media tools and the power of live events, she teaches companies the value of accessibility and human interaction to a "Brand" and how to capitalize on that in the current marketplace. As a business networker and promoter she is fearless and spot-on in helping businesses get ahead. For her tireless work ethic and bottomless pool of creative ideas she has been dubbed "The Machine" by many.
Deciding to create and maintain her own Blog as a sort of clearinghouse of all things "Cheri" www.CheriSpeak.com was born. In its highly organized and easy to navigate pages you can find countless articles on a variety of subjects that include politics, health, community, music, and more. You will also find a library of poetry from erotic to dark, countless audio files of interviews she has done over the years and accolades for her business endeavors. There are also samples of her drawings and singing voice as well as images that represent her activist, business, and personal lives. *All content on Cheri's Blog is original unless otherwise noted.

Shouldn't the debate be about the content and context of the leaked information?
Isn't that what should ultimately be important?
There are some who would have you believe the means with which a leaker leaks is more important than all of that and oh, by the way, the leak itself?
Clean up on aisle 7 !

I don't remember a time where Americans were more divided and at the brink of what may be irreparable harm; the point of no return; a real Revolution, but in our case a not-so- Civil War with modern-day weapons of war.

Your capacity for fidelity is not her burden. If you screw up it's because you choose to screw up. If you think online flirting and/or cyber sex isn't cheating you are delusional. Everything you do with another woman takes away from the one you're with.

So let's talk. Let's talk about the ramifications of good sex--I mean down and dirty, hot, freakin' sex. Think back to that time with that woman or man, that blushing secret arousal and its anticipatory, heart-racing need, that constant "distraction" of desire and attraction. We've all been there.
