Author Bio's

"I read to escape. I write for the same reason. Sometimes life is difficult... So for just a little while, escape reality with me."

Cheri & Tristan

The Story Behind The Stories.

Cheri Schmidt, author of the successful Fateful Vampire Series, and Tristan Hunt, a seasoned narrator, have joined forces as writers to create exciting new chapters in the Fateful world, as well as new paranormal romance adventures like the first installment in the Fairy Tales of the Fey series, Sleeping Beauty's Very Untimely Murder.



Having come from artistic backgrounds, Cheri as a photographer and designer, Tristan as a musician and performer, they've often joked with one another after embarking on this unexpected journey that they are 'creative, non-writers writing together.' The union has been a natural progression of two storytellers at heart building a working relationship over the course of three years to bring Cheri's books to life through audio.


The experiment has been quite successful thus far, as the team became USA Today bestsellers on their last novel, landing them in the top 100 science fiction/fantasy authors on Amazon. Cheri writes from her home in Virginia and Tristan writes in California, symbolic of two very different perspectives enriching the tales they tell!

Fateful Is Published

Cheri wrote and published Fateful, the first in the original Fateful Vampire Trilogy, a story that wouldn't leave her thoughts until it was out on the paper.

Tristan Records Fateful

Remembering the wonder of having a story read to you, Cheri decided to turn Fateful into an audiobook. After just one interview, Tristan began to record the book, and continues to record them to this day.
