Welcome to My Crazy Wonderful Life

Hello, I am Zerry Greenwood, and I write Historical Romances based in the Idaho territory.

I am a lighthearted, simple woman, and my writing reflects those attributes. I was born and raised in the Rocky Mountains of Idaho, and I love my state. I hope you will not only fall in love with my heroes but my state as well.

I started writing only after the death of my mother, whose unpublished manuscripts gave her back to me in her written words. I decided to give that same gift to my seven children and many grandchildren.

My mother and I had so much in common: looks, faith, writing, fertility. Well, except she named her children, Jerry, Terry, Sherry, Merry, Kerry, Cherry, Perry, Zerry, and Berry, and I gave my children normal names.

Enough about me. 

Let me introduce you to the man who inspires all my heroes. He is not only HOT; but also kind, hardworking, honest, faithful, and funny.

We have been married 38 years, and in that time, I have fallen madly in love with him six times. Not the, gosh I love my husband love, the OMG I cannot believe I am so lucky to have this man, head-over-heels, ga ga love. We have 7 beautiful children. Five hardworking sons and two drop-dead gorgeous girls.

We raised and homeschooled them on the same cow ranch my husband was raised on.
Now our son, the spitting image of his father, plans to do the same with his children.
Hopefully, one day, his son will join him in operating the ranch.

The ranch has been a haven to raise children. No, it is not one long-running romance. It is hardships and struggles, long days and short nights, hard work and hard play, new life, and pain-filled deaths.

Grandchildren now fill my world with new adventures and trials, but I would not change my crazy wonderful life for anyone else's.




  1. I love your name, but can't imagine how your mom kept all of them straight. I haven't been to Idaho, but look forward to learning more about it. Beautiful family.

  2. Welcome, Zerry. My husband and I drove through the Idaho panhandle on a trip back to Pennsylvania from Washington. What a beautiful state for what little we were able to see. Ranch life sounds exciting, but its hard work. (I'm from a dairy farm). Looking forward to your posts and hearing about your lovely large family.

    1. Thank you, I love to share our lives with people. I hope you enjoy my post.

  3. So nice to meet you, Zerry. I love your name, too. Your mom must have been a fun woman. Your ranch looks lovely. Jacquie Rogers is also from Idaho, buy from Homedale near Boise. Welcome to Smart Girls Read Romance. I look forward to learning more about you through your posts.

  4. Hi, Zerry! Hey, we'll have to do some book events together! Looks like you're from southern Idaho. I'm close to Marsing, and my romance series is set in Owyhee County. I'll have to look up your books. ☺
