Sherry Gloag is a transplanted Scot now living in the beautiful coastal countryside of Norfork, England. She considers the surrounding countryside an extension of her own garden, to which she escapes when she needs “thinking time” and solitude to work out the plot for her next novel. While out walking, she enjoys talking to her characters—as long as there are no other walkers close by.
Apart from writing, Gloag enjoys gardening, walking,and reading. She cheerfully admits her books tend to take over most of the shelf and floor space in her workroom-cum-office. She also finds crystal craft work therapeutic.
The Wrong Target
Part of the anthology Spring Historicals
From the anthology Cupid Gone Wild. Headmistress, Tina Blackberry and Ryan Thomas can't control events after Ryan's daughter steals his coveted golden arrow and takes it to school. But put Cupid on the job and nothing can go wrong—or can it?
Cupid Project 2011
Objective: To match Subject 1 -Tina Blackberry, Headmistress, with Subject 2 -Sam Brown, English teacher.
Unforeseen element: The arrival of subject 3 - Ryan Thomas.
Every so often there are days that start badly and continue to go downhill. Today is one of those days. I often think humans assume Cupid’s life is one big laugh. Well, I’m here to tell everyone it’s not. I’m supposed to shoot arrows at the good folk down on Earth so people will find their true love. But, as I said, today started out badly and went downhill faster than an avalanche.
Ms Tina Blackberry gave me no problem but her English teacher and soul mate was another matter. I mean, I had the arrow sighted on Sam’s heart, and what happens? This stranger storms into Blackberry?s office and walks right in front of Sam just as I let my arrow fly? and I hit the wrong target... The guy was as mad as a hornet before my arrow hit, but boy, did he blow right after. I thought he?d take off into the stratosphere. It didn't look good, but a hard working Cupid can salvage any match! Can't he?
