Cheri & Tristan's Timeline


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.


Tristan Records Fateful

Remembering the wonder of having a story read to you, Cheri decided to turn Fateful into an audiobook. After just one interview, Cheri knew he was the right person to tell her story. Tristan began to record the book, and continues to record each new book to this day.

A Vampire Wedding

In order to grow the world of Fateful Vampires and explore new stories, Tristan began to write with Cheri. His first book was a novella focused on the wedding of Sir Max, the Vampire Knight, and Lady Nadia.

Cheri & Tristan

The Story Behind The Stories

Having come from artistic backgrounds, Cheri as a photographer and designer, Tristan as a musician and performer, they've often joked with one another after embarking on this unexpected journey that they are creative non-writers writing together. The union has been a natural progression of two storytellers at heart building a working relationship over the course of three years to bring Cheri's books to life through audio. They began writing together in 2016.

The experiment has been quite successful thus far, as the team become three-time USA Today bestsellers, landing them in the top 100 science fiction/fantasy authors on Amazon. Cheri writes from her home in Utah and Tristan writes in California, symbolic of two very different perspectives enriching the tales they tell!
