Bob Cherry is a critically acclaimed novelist and poet. His multi-award winning Texas/Alaska trilogy of novels grew partially from his native far West Texas roots, as well as from his three decades in an isolated fishing village in bush Alaska near the Bering Sea.
His fourth novel, Little Rains, set in the Big Bend country of Texas, was a runner-up for the coveted TCU Press Texas Book Award. It was also a finalist for the Mountain and Plains Booksellers Association Adult Fiction Award and was listed by the Denver Post as one of ten notable books for the year.
His fifth novel, Moving Serafina, published in 2007 by TCU Press in Fort Worth, Texas, is also set along the Texas/Mexico border. His sixth novel, One Eyed Jacks, was released in September of 2009. Five of Cherry’s poems were included in the anthology, Open Range: Poetry from the Reimagined West, also published in 2007 by Ghost Road Press of Denver. Cherry writes from his ranch west of Cody, Wyoming. He returns frequently to his native West Texas.
