Mmmmm…Cherries…

From rec.arts.sf.written Frequently Asked Questions

Pronunciation of Cherryh

C. J. Cherryh’s original last name was Cherry. The terminal H is

silent. The H was added because her first editor thought that Cherry

sounded too much like a romance writer. Her brother, artist David

Cherry, retains the original spelling.
