Through tragic loss to triumphant success, for richer or poorer, Sherry-Marie Perguson was advised for years to write her story. Now, in a style of storytelling that Sherry laughingly describes as “Erma Bombeck meets Joel Osteen, and they have dinner together,” comes her memoir, which circles around four instrumental influences in her existence: Faith, Family, Friends, and Fried Chicken.

 

Growing up in the ’50s Sherry-Marie became a talented songwriter and musician, writing over 70 songs and recording three albums, one of which was with her siblings. Unintentionally, she put her writing on hold while blessed to raise her family. She became a successful entrepreneur as the owner of Sherry’s Southern Charm & Tea, a famous tearoom and antique shop. Related to such influential figures as Mary Todd Lincoln and George Clooney, she’s also a speaker to women’s groups, and an award-winning licensed realtor and antique appraiser, just to name a few of her accomplishments. After retiring in 2014, Sherry decided to embark on the next phase of her life: writing this book.

 

From biscuits with “chocolate gravy” to favorite recipes from her revered Tea Room, readers can indulge not only in dozens of treasured family recipes from Sherry’s Southern roots, but also in a heartwarming and sincere expression of American family life. 

 

Praise for Faith, Family, Friends, and Fried Chicken

 

“Sherry shares a unique heritage we must cherish and perpetuate. Concern for others is a Godly virtue often reflected in her writing, family, and profession.” 

 

—Joe Carr, retired Estate Gift Planning Director, Banner Health Foundation 

 

“I have known Sherry for over 20 years, and she is the most reliable, trustworthy, and innovative person that I have known or worked with in my military and business career, which has spanned more than 50 years. I am confident her book will be well received by any who read it.” 

 

—James M. Jones Jr., retired Lt. Col USAF, President/CEO of J2 Inc.

Through tragic loss to triumphant success, for richer or poorer, Sherry-Marie Perguson was advised to write her story for years. Now, in a style of storytelling that Sherry laughingly describes as “Erma Bombeck meets Joel Osteen, and they have dinner together,” comes “Faith, Family, Friends and Fried Chicken.”

After growing up in the ’50s when life was simpler, Sherry-Marie became a talented songwriter and musician, writing over 70 songs and recording three records. She put her writing on hold while blessed to raise her family, and became a successful entrepreneur as the owner of Sherry’s Southern Charm & Tea, a famous tearoom and antique shop. Related to such influential figures as Mary Todd Lincoln and George Clooney, she’s also a speaker to women’s groups, and an award-winning licensed realtor and antique appraiser, just to name a few of her accomplishments.

After retiring in 2014, she decided to embark on the next phase of her life: writing her memoir by way of the four instrumental influences in her existence.

Faith… because it has surrounded her life, even in the darkest hours when she didn’t think she had any left. Family… because that’s who we begin our life’s journey with as they play a large part of what we become. Friends… because she has been blessed abundantly with loyal lifelong friends. And Fried Chicken… because she believes she was placed on this earth to celebrate life through cooking and food—especially homemade fried chicken.

From Southern biscuits with “chocolate” gravy to favorite recipes from her revered Southern Tea Room, readers can indulge not only in a heartwarming and sincere expression of American family life—but also dozens of treasured family recipes from Sherry’s cherished Southern roots.

Author bio coming soon.
This is a fantastic book that combines some incredible recipes with inspiring stories. Sherry has gone through some tragic events in her life, but her reflection of beloved memories, opportunities and experiences makes this a well-balanced read! Gotta love the "chocolate" gravy with biscuits, too.
