Cheryl Turner: Formerly a prolific writer for Rambles.NET, Cheryl now ocassionally graces our pages with a review. Perhaps this has something to do with the fact that she is now married and at any given time holds down about four different and (not necessarily) exciting jobs. When she does write, she has a particular interest in the Celtic genre, and can always be counted on to review the live goings-on in Cape Breton, where she makes her home "somewhere along the Cabot Trail." (Oh, the poor girl!) When not writing reviews, Cheryl can be found running, snowshoeing, walking, biking, swimming or skating (depending on the season) around the island, and definitely not wishing she was back in the hustle and bustle of the city!
