Dear Reader, 

I’m excited to share my passion for literature with you and committed to creating novels that have the power to move, inspire, captivate, and entertain. My characters’ stories are inspired by real-life scenarios that spark conversation and challenge worldviews. 

 Aside from novel writing, I've protected children from abuse, counseled youth, and reunified families. I've worked as a Adjunct Humanities Professor for Springfield College for nine years,  founded 1619 National Celebration of Black Women, and co-founded Pro's & Coaches Anti-Drug Campaign with my husband. I'm also a black history buff!  

I hold a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Texas Southern University, an HBCU, a Masters's degree in Social Work from San Diego State University, and I'm an Associate Clinical Social Worker. 

Over the years, I have fallen in love with a wealth of literary and contemporary giants whose books fill my shelves to this day. Alas, thanks to Kindle and Audible books, my shelf space is limitless, and I now have the time to discover emerging authors.

Currently, I reside in Southern California where I was born and reared. Together, with my very supportive husband, we raised two amazing, talented, self-driven children.  

Thank you for stopping by! 

Sheryl Mallory-Johnson

Author's Update...

What I'm up to now...


Enjoying life and family, penning the final book of my "Hand's Series" Trilogy, which has taken an exciting, unexpected turn, working on my first short story collection, mind-mapping my next play, and filming a transformational documentary. 

Most proudly,  "Sense of Love," a full-length stage play I adapted from my novel of the same title, debuted at the La Jolla Playhouse Mandell Weiss Forum, October, 2022 (Play Video below).

Amazon reviews


"This book (Hand for Hand) stands on its own as a sequel. It has drama, suspense and so much emotion, it was a real page turner for me. The further character development of the twins made me even more connected to their experiences than before. I truly am looking forward to the third installment in this series."
