BOOK TITLE: The Unexpected Daughter
Sheryl Parbhoo is an author, blogger, educator, and mother of five. A native southerner, her interest in the intricacies of human culture led to a BA in Anthropology from the University of Memphis. Her longing for the spice of life culminated when she married her high school sweetheart, a South African Indian immigrant, and became a stay-at-home mom to their five children for over 20 years before teaching high school.
Sheryl is known worldwide for her blog, Southern Life Indian Wife, where for years she shared stories from her spicy masala/southern cornbread way of life raising her large multicultural family and navigating the quirks of Southern and Indian in-law relationships. These, along with the responses received from readers, are the real-life inspirations for her novel, The Unexpected Daughter. She currently blogs at SherylParbhoo.com and is at work on a memoir of her multicultural life in the South, which will be released in 2019.
Coffee is her very best friend. She divides her time between her family, graduate school, and travel. The rest of the time, you can find her at Starbucks writing with a triple espresso latte in her hand.
