Who Is Cherry Chevapravatdumrong?
Cherry Chevapravatdumrong, also known as Cherry Cheva, is an American writer, screenwriter, and producer. She has been writing the Griffins family since 2006 on the hit Fox TV show Family Guy. She also co-wrote the 'It Takes a Village Idiot and I Married One' spinoff novel.
Her first book, 'She's So Money, ' looked lightly at the high school's senior year and is loosely inspired on her own experience at her parents' restaurant, Lotus Thai, and Marnee Thai. Her second book, 'DupliKate,' was about an overachieving high school senior named Kate, who discovers a three-dimensional avatar from a video game that has entered her life.
Cherry Chevapravatdumrong was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan. When she was young, her parents forbade her from watching television until she discovered Saturday Night Live in 1991. During the summers, Cherry worked at law firms, and during the winter breaks, she waited tables at her parents' restaurant, Lotus Thai.
She went to River Rat Huron High School student in Ann Arbor. Having an interest in writing from an early age, she kept a diary in third grade, was the school newspaper's editor, and wrote for the literary magazine. She also took standard AP classes and played the violin.
Because of parental pressure, she majored in psychology at Yale and received a law degree from New York University Law School. In addition, she wrote for the Law School Musical Comedy every year during her tenure at New York University.
Despite majoring in psychology, she was more interested in creative writing. So she enrolled in several writing courses. She always wanted to write for television shows. Although she wasn't a film student, she enjoyed it and figured it to make a career out of it.
So, as her friends studied for the bar exam, Cherry decided she was not cut out for the legal profession. Instead, she moved west, hoping to get into the television industry, and worked as an assistant for an agency, TV executives, and the writing team of the TV sitcom Listen Up. It was during those days where she saw how fleeting a program could be.
Subsequently, she was also networking and writing spec scripts, hoping to break into television writing. Finally, she met some people who worked on Family Guy. They recognized her when the show was revived, and she had a foot in the door. She has been writing scripts on Fox's hit TV show Family Guy for the dysfunctional Griffin family since 2006. She joined the writing crew in the fourth season. She became the only female author of the series for a while. She wrote episodes like 'Holly Bibble,' 'Throw It Away,' 'Dog Bites Bear,' 'Gronkowsbees,' 'Candy, Quahog Marshmallow,' ' Turkey Guys,' 'Quagmire's Quagmire' and 'Friends Without Benefits.'
The Griffin family's exploits are depicted in the animated series Family Guy. Peter and his stay-at-home wife Lois live in Quahog, Rhode Island, with their three children. The eldest girl, Meg, is a social outcast and adolescent. The second child is Chris. Stewie, the youngest, is a brilliant kid who is hell-bent on murdering his mother and destroying the world.
"The great thing about a show like Family Guy is that you can be doing a joke about post-impressionist art one second, gay marriage the next, and 'Jersey Shore' the next. Everything is fair game," Cherry said about working on the Family Guy. Currently, she serves as the writer and the executive producer of the series.
In 2008, Cherry Cheva released her debut book 'She's So Money.' The book looked lightly at the high school's senior year and is loosely based on her own experience at Ann Arbor's parents, Lotus Thai, and Marnee Thai's restaurants.

According to Lauren Myracle, New York Times–bestselling author he wrote; "Cherry Cheva is hilarious. And 'She's So Money' is a kick-booty read!"
She also wrote another book titled 'Duplikate.' The book was about an overachieving high school senior named Kate, who discovers a three-dimensional avatar from a video game that has entered her life.
