Sherrie Lueder was born on November 13, 1951, in Tracy, Minnesota and christened Sherrie Rae Taarud. She would be the second-oldest of four siblings. Sherrie loved spending her summers near the water and enjoyed long days of lounging on the beach reading mystery novels and writing poetry. One of her poems “A Tribute to Mom” was published in a local newspaper (The Lake Park News, December 29, 1979), and later in Eddie-Lou Cole’s Anthology of Great Poems. She met her husband, a lifelong resident of Wisconsin, where they chose to settle and raise their four children.
Her first book “HE KILLED OUR JANNY”: A Family’s Search for the Truth was self-published September 21, 2011. Within three months of its release the book won two True Crime Book Awards. In December 2011, it won Top 30 True Crime Book Awards. Literary agents claimed the research was impeccable. In January 2012, it won Top 10 True Crime Book Awards. Within days, “HE KILLED OUR JANNY” went on to become one of Amazon’s Top 100 Best Sellers in two categories (1) True Crime Murder/Mayhem and (2) Family Relationships/ Dysfunctional Relationships. In April 2012, “He Killed our Janny” was considered for the 21st Annual Colorado Book Awards. Today it is an international bestseller.
In May 2013, Sherrie self-published her second true crime book, “UNTIL SOMEONE GETS HURT:” The Multi-Layered Crime Spree and Murder by a Master Criminal Enterprise, a/k/a Kaushal Niroula and his Gang of Grifters. Sherrie appeared on Investigation Discovery’s new series ‘FORBIDDEN’, Series 1, Episode 9, a documentary titled “Prince of Darkness” a/k/a Kaushal Niroula, which premiered October 10, 2013.
Sherrie has since written and self-published, Aspen, Snow, Blow, and Bo, My Guarded Secrets, and Cocaine and Champagne. All are biographies. She is currently working on her next true crime book, which details a 1980 murder that took place in Whitewater, Wisconsin.
