Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Sherrie Hansen and More
Sherrie’s 5th novel, Love Notes, (Second Wind Publishing), her first attempt at inspirational romance, was released in June 2012. Sherrie’s first four books are also romances. While all Sherrie’s books contain issues of faith and family, the first four also include a few “steamy” scenes that may not be appropriate for younger or sensitive readers. All are “second chance at romance” stories with primary characters in their 30′s and 40′s. Each of Sherrie’s books contains at least one special quilt.
Sherrie attended Wheaton College, Wheaton, IL, and University of Maryland, European Division, majoring in Creative Writing and English Lit. Before settling in northern Iowa, Sherrie lived in Austin, Minnesota, Bar Harbor, Maine, Augsburg, Germany, Lawton, Oklahoma, and Colorado Springs, Colorado. Sherrie Hansen operates a Victorian Bed & Breakfast and Tea House, The Blue Belle Inn B&B and Tea House, in Saint Ansgar, Iowa, which like her, got a second chance when she rescued it from the bulldozer’s grips and turned its scarred exterior into a place of beauty.
In her “spare time”, Sherrie writes novels, quilts, makes music on the piano, plays with her camera, renovates old houses and travels to the far off corners of the world. Sherrie and her husband, Pastor Mark Decker, divide their time between a cottage in St. Ansgar, and the parsonage of Zion Lutheran Church, rural Hudson, Iowa, where Mark serves as pastor.
