Author Spotlight: Rory D. Sheriff

Nothing is more engaging than absorbing the sultry sounds of an eclectic voice when it is combined with words from an alluring and profound mind.

Triple-threat Rory D. Sheriff has something special to offer your eyes, ears and mind. Author, actor and Playwright, Rory has skillfully and uniquely set himself up as a cut above the rest. By commingling his talent of satisfying all of the senses, Rory has elevated the artistry of romance and drama in written form.

According to Rory being a world traveler and former soldier in the U.S. Army has given him broad perspective on life, love and adventure.

Often penning his thoughts just as a means of expression, Rory discovered his first passion for poetry and creative writing. Simple thoughts inspired by life soon were cultivated into notebooks full of lyric prose, influenced by the works of authors and playwrights such as Zora Neale Hurston, Lorraine Hansberry, August Wilson and Tyler Perry.

Rory chased his dream of entertaining readers with his unique story telling style.

His first debut was a steamy novel, Get N’ Serious. Rory went on to pen 4 stage plays, 4 novels and 3 short films. He debut his first musical, “Be a Lion” in 2013. It received rave revues across the nation, including an offer to perform in South Africa. His second stage play is true and dear to his heart. Chicago’s 2016 ‘A Taste of Theater’ award winning stage play, ‘Boys to Baghdad’ is loosely based off of his experience in the Army and serving in Desert Shield/Storm.

Rory attended Temple University and Central Piedmont Community College where he majored in Business and Theater.

His journey began with an initial internship at Philadelphia’s Power 99. He was mentored by one of the station’s most familiar voices better known as the “Golden Boy”. It was followed by a thirteen-year career in the radio industry. This laid the foundation for him to create a well-recognized name in the arts community. He currently resides in Charlotte, NC.

Pulling fascination from his sleeve once again!

His audience is anticipating the debut of two forthcoming stage plays, “Henry” and “Speak Easy”. But first, “Jitney”, which premiered in Charlotte August 2017. Rory and BNS Productions presented August Wilson’s Tony Award winning play for the very first time in Charlotte, NC, this past August. This was BNS Productions’ third opening at the Duke Energy Theater, following rave reviews and sold-out performances of the original stage production, Be a Lion in May.
