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 just couldn’t pass up. Plain and simple, I’m an opportunist. When the ebook revolution hit, I dove in because I wanted to be involved on the front end of this new wave. Who doesn’t want to be part of a revolution?

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.

Reviewed by Ray Simmons for Readers' Favorite

I have to say that Emergence: Book Three of The Earthside Trilogy by Sherri Fulmer Moorer is the most complex alien invasion novel I have ever read involving not one, but two alien races, neither of which is something simple like “lizard men” or “cat people”. No, these are well thought out, complex beings with very complicated reasons for coming to Earth. Reasons so complicated that humans are at a loss as to who to align themselves with or to even believe. We get a good look at how inefficient human technology, politics, and governments are in the face of superior, or even just different, civilizations. Despite the stakes, despite the overwhelmingly serious situation that the invasions present the world with, mankind cannot come together. Sherri Fulmer Moorer sets this political crisis up perfectly.

I have not read the first two books in the series, which I seriously regret, but that did not stop me from enjoying this one, and it didn’t take long for me to get caught up on what was happening. I liked Emergence. I liked the very complicated alien societies. I liked that there were so many humans from so many different backgrounds, working towards their own purposes. The plot is good. It is drawn out, but it has to be. There are some serious choices to be made. Setting is not so central, it happens all over the world, even the solar system. The idea is sound. The writing is good, and Sherri Fulmer Moorer brings it all together in a very satisfying conclusion.
