The Book

Doors & Windows – A Collection of Steps


Cheryl Courtney Semick

Available in paperback and e-book Fall 2009!

This quirky collection of true stories first appeared in my newspaper column, Doors & Windows, in the Community Word newspaper, Peoria, Illinois from 1998 – 2010.

Divorced, homeless, parenting a teenage son and in pursuit of justice, a door opened to for me to join the journalistic literati in December 1998, when, through a humble local essay contest, I wrote my story and won.  One of the judges knew an editor looking for a columnist.

The rest is history, but now it’s headed to the press in a compilation.  Watch this blog for ordering information!
