C.L. Postill currently makes her home in a small town nestled in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains, just far enough away from the big city to satisfy her love of the outdoors. Three sons, a rescue cat and dog, and her husband serve as her daily support system and cheerleaders for her writing. Her debut fiction novel, Cory Summers and the Wrath of Naytas, scheduled for publication in Fall of 2021, was born out of a story she has been telling her boys and their friends, before bedtime, around campfires, and at sleep-over parties for over 25 years. Her humor/adventure novel, Mediocre – Mayhem at the Middle School, is targeted for release in the Spring of 2022.
Cherie Postill is a writer, a marketing professional, and a speaker. She is the author of How to Train a Beta Reader and Sell More Books, a nonfiction guide for writers. She teaches workshops to young writers, directs a summer writers camp for kids, and serves on the St. Louis Writers Guild board as a V.P. of Contests and liaison for 20+ school districts. She is an active member of the St. Louis Publishers Assoc.
When she is not writing or presenting workshops to writers, young and old, she enjoys time with friends and family, reading, teaching, camping, hiking, cooking, and helping aspiring writers. You can learn more about her writing at www.clpostill.com. She loves to connect with fellow readers and writers and welcomes your emails at firstname.lastname@example.org.

My GOAL: To Build Lifetime Readers
Method: Write Books You Will Love Reading!
At middle-school and elementary book fairs, I hear a lot of, "there are no new books that are fun to read, Mrs. Postill."
So, I wrote some!
I loved listening to books with my children almost more than reading to them. My husband read to us almost every night! (I know, I am really lucky) There is a magical moment — you can see it in their face when the world around them melts away, and they are whisked into the world of the writer's creation. They giggle, they gasp and sometimes cringe. This is what I want to give to my readers, readies, and their parents; this special moment.
I always look forward to the next book that will take me to places I have never even imagined, make my heart race, keep me up late, and introduce me to new friends. I am never bored as long as I have the amazing adventures captured between the pages of a great book.
