The Story Behind The Story

Sherrilyn started writing the Dark-Hunters in 1986 as urban fantasy short stories. Many of these were published in the SF magazine, Cutting Edge. The first DH novel was completed in 1991.

New Orleans is more or less a home base for the Dark-Hunters. Why? Because since the day Sherrilyn first saw it, she has been in love with the city. On the tour you in the photo gallery will see some of Sherri's favorite places and locations where she worked when she lived there. And though her hubby has dragged her far away from home, it still lives in her heart and she ventures back there every chance she gets.

Widget Bones was born out of two author friends: Amy Burgess and Kate Johnson playing around on Yahoo Instant Messenger. The two friends finally got up enough courage to share their story with Sherrilyn who loved it and found it hilarious.

The Companion was compiled...

What age would you suggest this books for? My 15 yr old daughter who reads on a 11th grade reading levels but is 15 and in 9th grade. Is there anything sexual I should be worried about?

Melissa, September 20, 2015

    The Chronicles of Nick are written for young adults in high school and deal with the issues that face high school kids. They are age appropriate for high schoolers and age with the protagonist. The Dark-Hunter and League, etc are written for adults with adult content and adult subject matter. But as for what you're comfortable with, we always suggest that the parents read the books first to determine if it's what they want their children to read. Sherri wrote the CON books for her sons, but she never wants to tell another parent how to raise their children. It's up to each parent to determine what they feel their child is ready to read and what material they're comfortable with exposing them to. To answer your question more explicitly, there is no PDA in the CON books other than hand holding and kissing.

This book lists Kyros of Seklos as deceased. It's written that he sacrificed fimself for Alexion. But in the Sins of the Night, Acheron sends him home. Is this another Blooper, or do I remember wrong?

Lyra, August 12, 2013

    Sherri didn't write the Companion. I would assume it's a blooper. I know there were several in it.

    MB_Staff, August 12, 2013

I love all your books. I'v laughed my ass off and cried my eyes out. Can't get enough. The baklava recipe in the companion book excellent. Family favorite.

I absolutely love Acheron he is by far my favorite! The love he has for people is so pure and beautiful and totally thrilled he's found someone who share the same love for him! Would love to see what happens with him and Tory in another book

    That would be Styxx.
