About Sherry

Sherry Stanfa-Stanley is a writer, humorist, and squeamish adventurer, whose  memoir, “Finding My Badass Self: A Year of Truths and Dares,” was published by She Writes Press in August 2017.


Sherry writes about her midlife escapades and other topics on Facebook (The 52 at 52 Project) and also blogs here. Her work has been published by “The Rumpus,” “Midlife Boulevard,” “Healthy Aging,” “First for Women,” “The Huffington Post,” and in the anthology “Fifty Shades of Funny.” She also received a Midwest Writers Workshop Fellowship.


By day, Sherry has enjoyed a long career in journalism and public relations. Currently, she attempts to respectably represent her alma mater as a communication director at The University of Toledo, where she was named one of UT’s Outstanding Women of 2017.


An empty nester after raising Son #1 and Son #2, she now indulges a menagerie of badly behaved pets.
