Shéri wrote a book about her life, with the assistance of Colleen Naudé. The book was launched in Afrikaans and English in 2017.
This is the first time a person with Down syndrome wrote a manuscript about their life, themselves. She wanted to tell the world in her own words how she experiences her life, living with Down syndrome. Her mother will also share her emotional growth, travelling her road of life with Sheri.
The book was nominated for the The Andrew Murray-Desmond Tutu prize. This prize acknowledges Christian and theological publications in an official South African language.
On 13 March 2019 a book discussion with Sheri about her book, Sheri…just the way I am, was done by Deon Meyer, well-known writer in South Africa, in the Drostdy Theatre in Stellenbosch.
