Interview with Sheri
What do you write?
I’m Sheri Fink, the author of the #1 best-selling children’s books, The Little Rose and The Little Gnome. I write books that inspire and delight children while planting seeds of self-esteem that can have lifelong benefit. I am so happy and grateful to be living my dream!
What has been your favorite part of your author journey so far?
For me, the best parts of being an author are hearing that your book has an impact in the lives of children and being able to help others achieve their dreams. I love receiving fan mail and hearing stories from the children and adults who have fallen in love with The Little Rose and The Little Gnome. I am so grateful to my readers and hope that The Whimsical World of Sheri Fink continues to make a positive difference in the lives of children worldwide.
Which author most inspires you?
I’m very inspired by J.K. Rowling. Before I read the first Harry Potter book, it had been a long time since I stayed up all night reading a book because I just had to know what happened. I love that her books and her characters are so full of heart. Reading her series and hearing her inspiring personal story really moved me and enabled me to see new possibilities for my writing.
What’s your favorite quote?
I have a few favorites:
"The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person who is doing it." ~ Chinese Proverb
"Go to the edge of the cliff and jump off. Build your wings on the way down." ~ Ray Bradbury
"Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." ~ Dr. Seuss
What’s next for you?
My next book is Exploring the Garden with The Little Rose and it will be published in October. It’s designed for children ages 2-5 to help them learn the alphabet and garden vocabulary. It’ll feature many of the characters from The Little Rose, The Little Gnome, and upcoming books. We finished writing The Little Rose play recently and I’m looking forward to it debuting later this year. I’m also at work on my next book in The Little Series, The Little Firefly, which will be published in 2013.

About The Little Rose
The Little Rose is a timeless, heartwarming story about embracing who you really are. Finely detailed, irresistible illustrations bring to life this endearing story of the Little Rose growing amongst a bed of weeds. Teased by the ugly weeds around her, the Little Rose nearly gives up but then learns to accept and love herself for what she really is, a beautiful rose.
Themes: Inspiration, Empowerment, Self-Esteem, Overcoming Bullying, Embracing Who You Are, Authenticity
In this story Little Rose is found among the weeds that bullied and stunted her emotional and physical growth. When she is found by a kind lady and transplanted to a better location and environment where she is able to excel in her self esteem and grow into what she was meant to be with a since of empowerment.
As the author stated "Embracing Who You Are"
Not what other people say you are.
How many of our little flowers are planted among weeds that try to choke out their inner and outer beauty and growth causing them to loose confidence in themselves?!
This story is a great lesson in self worth for all children and possibly some adults. Even parents can sometimes unintentionally cause their child to feel like Little Rose. Let's be sure we don't stunt any child's growth. Remember, Children Are Our Future!
