About Author

 

Sherry Frith was born in Los Angeles, California, on January 16. At the age of 17 she relocated to Bakersfield, California with her parents Jerry and Kathy Marvel. She currently resides in Bakersfield, and is the Chief Financial Officer at a local concrete construction business. Her 3 boys are very energetic, atheletic, and enjoy sports. On most weekdays or weekends she can be found in the stand cheering Kyle in soccer, Kevin in football or Kory in baseball.

Sherry Frith wrote Sticky Icky Booger Bugs after her sons Kory and Kevin were diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. She wanted to give them a gift and an explanation for what they were being faced with in terms both could understand. Keeping the sticky icky booger bugs away became an important daily routine that keeps the disease under control and her boys out of the hospital. After being diagnosed in 2010 with a rare genetic heart condition, her future was unknown. She made the decision to leave something for her boys, and the book unfolded with the help from illustrations by her neighbor Carol, whose grandson is also in the book. Kory’s story lets him and other children with medical routines know that they are loved.
