"I read to escape. I write for the same reason. Sometimes life is difficult, so for just a little while, escape reality with me." 

~Cheri Schmidt




Fateful Is Published

Cheri wrote and published Fateful, the first book in the Fateful Vampire Trilogy, a story that had been roiling her thoughts until she finally put it on paper.


Fateful on Audio

Remembering the wonder of having a story read to you, Cheri decided to turn Fateful into an audiobook.

A Vampire Wedding

In order to grow the world of Fateful Vampires and explore new stories, Tristan Hunt (the narrator of Cheri’s audiobooks) began ghostwriting with Cheri. The first book completely with his help was a novella focused on the wedding of Sir Max, the Vampire Knight, and Lady Nadia.

USA Today

The plan worked. Vampire Knights won Cheri her first title of USA Today Bestselling Author, something which she has now achieved three times!
