I’m Cheryl Burman, an author originally from Australia and now living in Gloucestershire. I’m especially lucky to call home the beautiful Forest of Dean where the landscape, the creatures and the people have inspired writers for hundreds of years.

In 2010 the people told the government of the day they couldn’t sell off England’s public forests as they planned to do. It was that fight which sowed the seeds of the fantasy tale which became my first book(s) The Danae of the Forest trilogy.

Reading at a Dean Writers Circle event in January 2020
The piece was The Orchard Kingdom which you can read here

I’ve been writing ever since; am a member of Dean Writers Circle and a founder of Dean Scribblers.
