  • “Wall Street women never talk because their silence has been bought. Not Maureen Sherry. She tells her story of a working mother’s battle against outrageous sexism and financial recklessness with laugh-out-loud insight and winning panache.”

    - Allison Pearson, New York Times bestselling author
  • “Corporate sexism and the mortgage crisis are a laugh a minute…in this delightful comic novel, at least…So much fun, and educational too.”

    - Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
  • “Rooting for our girl banker/mommy/wife Isabelle is not tough; she is so brilliantly breezy.”

    - Lucy Sykes, author of The Knockoff

About the Author

After twelve years on Wall Street, Maureen Sherry—formerly the youngest managing director at Bear Stearns and a Cornell graduate—switched gears to earn her Masters of Fine Arts at Columbia University to write and to tutor at inner-city schools. Walls Within Walls—her first book, a mystery for middle school audiences—has been awarded curriculum prizes by the states of Texas and Connecticut, and she was named one of the Best New Voices by the American Library Association. Maureen is also an active board member of numerous charities. But Maureen believes her biggest project is raising her four children with her husband, which never feels like a job at all.
