I’m thrilled to have Sherry back on the show this week. We’ll be catching up with her about her new book, Amish life in Florida and so much more! Tune in Thursday at 4 PM Central.

More about Sherry: Sherry Gore is the author of Taste of Pinecraft….Glimpses of Sarasota Florida’s Amish Culture and Kitchens. She’s a writer/food reviewer for the Pinecraft Pauper, Florida’s first Amish newspaper, and a scribe for her community for the National Edition of The Budget. She co-hosted the Pinecraft Writer’s Presentation in Florida with Professor Emeritus Richard Stevick, author of Growing up Amish; the Teenage Years.

Sherry was featured in the 2010 spring edition AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT section of New York times best-selling author Cindy Woodsmall’s newsletter, Plain News.

She is a year-round resident in Sarasota, Florida, the vacation paradise of the Plain People, and is a member of a Beachy Amish Mennonite Church. She is currently chronicling the adventures of everyday life of the Plain people in Pinecraft for the second edition of Taste of Pinecraft, due to be released 2012.

This mother of three, and full-time caregiver of her twenty-year-old daughter, loves to swim in the Gulf of Mexico, as she attempts to combat her pathological fear of sharks. It is her life-long dream to ride in the Oscar Mayer Wiener Mobile.

She is the non-resistant owner of a double barrel shotgun with an affinity for pie. Her current WIP includes an Amish Mennonite cookbook devoted entirely to that affinity. She learned the hard way one spring day not to wear Chap-stick while driving an open buggy behind a shedding horse. Find out more about Sherry at her website:

More about An Amish Bride’s Kitchen: a cookbook of stories, must-have recipes, and how-to’s for bride’s and beginners. Coming spring 2011.
