Bio: 

From an article by Sharon Haddock, for the Deseret News:

Cheri Maude never wanted to make dolls nobody could play with.

She wanted to create something of value, dolls that were more than just beautiful — yet collectible.

In that spirit, she's created the Ginger Brook Hollow line that includes storybooks about seven orphan girls and a grandma, matching dolls, their clothes and accessories.

"I didn't want to create something that was only beautiful and would sit on the shelf collecting dust," Maude said. "If I was going to be committed enough to make this dream happen, there had to be a purpose for what I did. This had to be something that I could put my heart and soul into so that when I held it out to someone, I was handing them something of value. Creating Ginger Brook Hollow has taken everything I have ever learned and every hobby, skill and talent I have explored or developed."
