Cheryl Powell, (writing under pen name Cheryl Denise Bannerman), is a multi-genre author of four successful works of fiction, a motivational speaker, and CEO. She resides in Orlando, Florida, where she runs a virtual Training and Development company, GC Learning Services LLC dba Learn2Engage.info, which she founded in 1996.
As a child…
Even at the age of seven, up and coming Author Cheryl Denise Bannerman, would sit for hours on end, reading about faraway lands, intriguing characters and intoxicating storylines.
And by a pre-teen, she was writing poetry for publication and short stories for school that moved the reader to laughter, tears, and sometimes anger. She was an old creative soul from a young age, experiencing way too much ‘life’ than she would have liked.
All grown up…
When Author Cheryl Powell (pen name, Cheryl D. Bannerman) is not writing for her next book, she is running her 22-year old virtual B2B Training and Development company based out of her Orlando, Florida, home. Since 1996, she has been known as an Instructional Design and e-Learning Specialist — with clients all over the US and overseas — creating classroom training materials, e-Learning modules, job aides and more for corporate employees and their clients.
This author also holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Management and a Master of Science degree in IT Project Management and Leadership. She manages multiple projects over various time zones as an expert Training and Development Service Provider. Her wide range of training experience, from classroom-based as a Computer Instructor to online universities as a Professor, all the way to the corporate arena — in conjunction with her background in Technology — has greatly contributed to her success in the field of Training and Development.
In her spare time, Cheryl Powell loves to read murder mysteries, cook, watch movies, try new restaurants and cuisines, and take in the sun on the beach. And, although this author’s works are fiction, she has incorporated many of her personal life’s experiences into their stories.
