Author Biography

Most writers start their bio with an explanation of who they are and why they write. I’ll make this simple. My name is Sherri Fulmer Moorer. I write because I’ve always loved to do it, and ebooks gave me an opportunity to share those stories with readers that I couldn’t pass up. The purpose of my writing is to escape reality and experience the adventure of ordinary people dealing with extraordinary circumstances.

I write in a variety of genres because I can’t be pigeon holed into one area, and I’m many other things in addition to being an author. I work full time in professional licensing, which is great for keeping me in touch with people and reality and, in turn, inspires me to write more. I’m married and live in the woods with two parrots that keep our hearts, home, and lives filled with joy and silliness that most people find strange. I’m a book reviewer, social media rambler, and borderline introvert/extrovert whose kindred spirit, according to online quizzes, is somewhere between a Sith Inquisitor from Star Wars and Scooter from The Muppets.

“Do not fear. The convergence is coming.” In Convergence (The Earthside Trilogy) by Sherri Fulmer Moorer, biological engineer Willow Lanier is banished from Earth to penal colony Kuiper Station One for launching a cybertec virus that caused many deaths as a political statement against the cybernetic aliens. Feeling remorseful and wanting to atone for her crime, she and the rest of the outcast scientists are tasked with studying a spatial anomaly that has been expanding for 30 years. They soon discover that there’s a significant change coming their way that will affect their reality and beyond.

Moorer’s Convergence has a strong premise and the narrative kept me engaged from start to finish. The world-building and its proposed futuristic tech are relatable and not too overly complex for one to imagine, combined with a well thought out plot. The spatial anomaly, the characters’ episodes of ‘dissociative amnesia’, as well as their personal opinions about the aliens keep the level of mystery and suspense high as they try to figure out who to trust. Willow is a well fleshed out protagonist, with strengths and flaws that give her a substantial personality with admirable depth. I also gravitated towards Addie and her brash attitude. There are several good twists that readers will love and Moorer ends the story with an epilogue that promises another exciting sequel. All in all, this is an entertaining and commendable read with a vital message about the importance of understanding and unity for the benefit of all.
