Sheri Roloff started writing even before she knew any words. She’d fill up tiny notebooks with squiggly cursive-like lines until one day, those squiggles actually said something. And to accompany those new words, Sheri drew pictures.
While writing and performing music in a rock band called Mercury Crossing, Sheri met and married her drummer. She also found a day job she actually liked – as a copywriter of ads, websites, brochures and more. Today she leads a team of copywriters and develops creative marketing concepts at Direct Supply in Milwaukee, WI.
But Sheri never forgot those squiggles, and adding pictures to her words, this time as an adult, proved incredibly fun. She joined SCBWI in 2014, where she has been able to hone her craft and connect with the talented writers and illustrators in the SCBWI community. This fall, Sheri led a workshop at the SCBWI Wisconsin Fall Conference called “Stories for Humans: Use comics concepts to enhance any story.”
