About the Amazon Best-selling Author
Though Sheri Poe-Pape has written many internet articles about people in the arts and in history, "Cassie's Marvelous Music Lessons" and "Cassie Pup Takes the Cake??" are the author's first two children's books. She has also been Director/Educator of the Pape Conservatory of Music for the past thirty-nine years. Each day, she warms up on the piano, and for fifteen of those years, a small dog has been her constant companion.
In recent years, little Cassie has stood on the right side of the keyboard and brushed the author's hands off the piano keys and helped also to be a 'baker's helper' - habits that inspired these stories! The author is a graduate of Northern Illinois University where she studied music, English and creative writing. She lives with her family in Northern Illinois, where she continues to write and to teach music-alongside Cassie.
