Sherryll by Day

Sherryll Sobie Cooke is an award-winning writer and photographer, and the former editor of Ignite magazine. After graduating from university with a Political Science degree, Sherryll worked in a family business until one day she could no longer ignore the creative call. She went back to school in the fall of 2001 as a mature student taking targeted courses in writing and photography. In April 2002, Sherryll got her start in journalism as the feature writer and photographer for the Muskoka Sun—and has been full-steam ahead since. For the last 11 years, Sherryll’s wide-ranging work has appeared in a variety of consumer and trade publications including the Toronto Star, Cottage Life, Canadian Living, Canadian Contractor, Pharmacy Practice and others. She has also been hired as a ghost tweeter, a web copywriter and a blogger.
