2011 International Book Award-Winning Finalist and
USA Best Books 2011 Award-Winning Finalist

Sherry enjoys writing stories for children that entertain, educate, motivate and inspire them to reach for their dreams and goals. She has a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and a Master's degree in Education.

She had always hoped for a relationship where she and her husband could work together, pool their talents, and make a difference for children.


God started Sherry and her husband, Robert, on that journey when they met in 2005. Married now for five years, their first book, Cup of Glitter, written by Sherry and illustrated by Robert, has been recognized as an Award-Winning Finalist in the 2011 International Book Awards, and a USA Best Books 2011 Award-Winning Finalist.

Challenged to pursue her dream of writing for children, Sherry wrote the first draft of
Cup of Glitter
in 2005. Not yet confident that the characters had come to life as she hoped, she revised the story a few times before sharing it with anyone. A while later, Robert brought his talents in digital painting to the page and created the visual adventure for Glitter and Dart. Once revised a few more times, the story finally looked and sounded the way the creative team had envisioned. The last step was to create the fairy song, set it to music and create the seek-and-find throughout the pages of the book.

Then came the overwhelming task of getting it published. While researching their options, Sherry and Robert decided to start their own publishing company.
Gilded Magic Publishiing was established in 2010.

Sherry is currently searching for and meeting with other potential authors who may want to tell their stories through Gilded Magic. They hope you enjoy Glitter and Dart’s story and that you keep a watch out for the many other stories and products in the works in the years to come.


2011 & 2012 International Book Award-Winning Finalist
USA Best Books 2011 Award-Winning Finalist

Robert is a multi-media "Jack Of All Trades" who graduated with a Fine Arts Degree from The Ohio State University with a primary focus in film and video production.

His skills include professional medium format and digital photography, videography, cinematography, 2D and 3D animation, motion graphics, visual effects, web design and illustration.


2010 - Robert officially launched Resonant Image Studios, an independent film and video production company that will also produce graphic novels, children's stories, interactive games and web design. Film productions will be based on original screenplays and stories created in-house and through licensed works.


After a lot of prayer and soul searching, Robert and his lovely wife Sherry decided to start Gilded Magic Publishiing in 2009 in an attempt to offer readers a unique blend of original high-quality stories and immersive "eye-catching" graphics.


Collaborating with Sherry K. Brubaker, Robert illustrated Sherry's first picture book entitled "CUP OF GLITTER" which out of eleven countries was recognized as an
Award-Winning Finalist in the 2011 International Book Awards and a USA Best Books 2011 Award-Winning Finalist.

"Sherry and I are absolutely thrilled to receive these honors! Hopefully our readers will have as much fun experiencing our stories as much as I had in writing and illustrating them. Congratulations Sherry! Thanks for bringing me along on this wonderful, color-filled journey!"

- Robert A. Brubaker, Author / Illustrator / Producer


The Bell Ringer, is a story centers on a young mischievous thief who despite himself, discovers forgiveness and the true meaning of Christmas. The Bell Ringer is the first children's picture book Robert has written and illustrated.

May 2012, Robert nearly flipped when Jeffrey Keen of JPX Media announced that The Bell Ringer was honored as an Award-Winning Finalist in the 2012 International Book Awards.

"It was exciting to hear. I spent nearly two years producing the graphics for The Bell Ringer with the hope it would serve both as an inspiration and means to serve the poor in support of The Salvation Army charitiable missions. So far I think we are off to a good start." - Robert A. Brubaker, Author / Illustrator / Producer

The Bell Ringer is also available in AUDIO BOOK form as a reading companion to the picture book and RADIO TELEPLAY complete with Hollywood level sound effects, original score and a strong narrative performance.

Robert and Sherry have been given a great opportunity to learn about the publishing world with Jack Canfield co-author of "Chicken Soup For The Soul" and Steve Harrison of Bradley Communications. Both have been very influential in the publishing world and have helped Best Selling authors like Tim Ferriss - The Four Hour Work Week and Ken Blanchard - One Minute Manager, to build their brands through a series of creative options. We look forward to incorporating what we've learned into our own publishing business model.

Robert looks forward to continuing his collaborative efforts with Gilded Magic Publishing, his wife Sherry and many other authors and artists as Gilded Magic Publishing moves toward building a greater inventory of high quality work.
