Life is a journey and we experience so many pivotal moments especially while growing up. There is something special about a road trip story—it is a metaphor for the journey of our lives and can be filled with so many experiences and moments.  

When young Greer embarks on a cross-country road trip with her father, the cemetery worker, to deliver the ashen remains of Will, she discovers things about herself, her father, and the world she lives in. In true coming-of-age fashion, she grows up in the most astonishing and humorous way. 

Sheryl Benko is the author of The Last of Will. Shegrew up in southern Colorado, graduating from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs with a B.A. in Communication, with emphasis in film and television. 

Sheryl got her first job in the film industry as a production assistant on the acclaimed 1993 western, “TOMBSTONE.”  Since that time, she has worked on over thirty films, stemming from some of the most prestigious directors in the motion picture industry.  Amongst the titles in which Sheryl is credited are the Academy Award-winning blockbuster, “TITANIC,” Quentin Tarantino’s “INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS,” Kenneth Branagh’s “THOR,” for Marvel Films, Oliver Stone’s “SAVAGES,” and the Jon Favreau hit, “CHEF.”  She is currently serving as associate producer on the forthcoming Netflix release, “BETWEEN TWO FERNS: THE MOVIE,” and will be working as the post-production supervisor for renowned writer/director Alan Ball on his upcoming feature, “UNCLE FRANK.”
