A New Mystery Series is on it's Way...

"There is no friend as loyal as a book.” - Ernest Hemingway

Meet the Author!


Hi, my name is Sherry Ickes and I am the author of the Slice of Life mysteries. I live near the small town of Carlisle in rural Pennsylvania with my husband, daughter, and our two dogs.


Fun Fact:
I was a cake decorator for over 20 years but never really liked the taste of icing.

Welcome to my murder mystery series! Based on a cake decorator in a small town where murder is a common dish on the catering menu and wedding cakes are fatally good.

My 3rd novel, A Murderous Christmas, was a 2020 Finalist

of the American Fiction Awards' "Mystery/Suspense: Cozy Mysteries Category" presented by American Book Fest!
