Sheri Poe-Pape, Children's Author
Multi-Award-Winning Children's Author
Though Sheri Poe-Pape has written many internet articles about people in the arts and in history, Cassie's Marvelous Music Lessons and Cassie Pup Takes the Cake?? are the author's first two children's books. She has also been Director/Educator of the Pape Conservatory of Music for the past thirty-nine years. Each day, she warms up on the piano, and for fifteen of those years, a small dog has been her constant companion. In recent years, little Cassie has stood on the right side of the keyboard and brushed the author's hands off the piano keys and helped also to be a “baker's helper”—habits that inspired these stories! The author is a graduate of Northern Illinois University where she studied music, English and creative writing. She lives with her family in Northern Illinois, where she continues to write and to teach music-alongside Cassie.
The most important thing the author wants readers to gain from her books:
Both my books are most unique as they are about a real dog that did all these situations and the books provide common moral ground as well.
Why the author is an authority on the subject of her books:
The books are about my my white, miniature schnauzer, Cassie!
