Sheri: I made a list of things out of the paper that were interesting (though horrible, some of them) and created a story that included all of them.
Sheri: When I was in school, it was still considered unimportant for females to study science or moth, because we wouldn't need it to be secretaries, nurses, or teachers, which were the only acceptable careers besides wife and mother.
Sheri: Whoever you are who has collected every one of my books and stories, blessings on you, and may your heaven be a vast, vast library.
