Before embarking on a writing career, Cheryl served as senior editor at Macmillan Travel (now Wiley), where she edited the Frommer's Hawaii travel guides for the better part of the 1990s. Now happy to be a globetrotting freelancer, Cheryl also authors Hawaii For Dummies and the Frommer's New York City travel guides.
