Cheryl Lynn Eaton is and will always be a lover of books. A Tri-State Area native (and now safely nestled in the outskirts of Atlanta), she has contributed to pop culture sites, held court as founder of the Ormes Society, maintained a position as an editor for an academic press, written for comic publications and prose anthologies, served as an editorial intern for Publishers Weekly, worked as a teaching assistant for Middlesex County College, and was employed as a comic-shop clerk in her early youth. Whew! Popular culture? She knows it. Black culture? She is steeped in it. The written word? She tames it. She is available for editorial work, ghostwriting, contributions as a columnist, and creative consultations. And she rarely refers to herself in the third person.
