Welcome! I’m Cheryl, the founder and editor-in-chief of The Cherie Bomb, an online blog focusing on original stories that showcase unique and progressive insights on culture, society, politics, while featuring cutting-edge articles about science, music, fashion, style and decor.
As a UC Berkeley alum, with degrees in women’s studies and journalism, my passions are writing, politics, and women’s and girls’ rights, especially in developing countries, and how politics affect women and girls. My writing about these issues attempt to inform and engage the public into embracing the advocacy for female rights and equality, and social justice, in general.

“Content is King”. Whether you’re a large corporation, a publication, a small business, a personal brand, or a public figure, high-quality, dynamic, engaging, original content is the key to edge your brand out in front of the competition. I am the writer who can provide that for you. For a sampling of some of my writing, please visit my portfolio at cheryldiaz.com.
I am an experienced journalist, editor, content creator and copywriter with writing published in newspaper and magazine formats. Additionally, I wrote, produced and reported local, national and international politics for a live radio news broadcast in Los Angeles. My writing began to be published while I was an undergrad. After graduating from Berkeley, my first experience as an editor was for Hillary Clinton when she was writing a weekly nationally syndicated column. Currently, I run my own writing service — The Cherie Bomb Editorial Services.
A California girl to the core, I am a 10th generation Californian, whose family founded most of the major cities in The Golden State, including Los Angeles, Santa Barbara and San Diego, as well as many other cities in Central and Northern California. You can read about my ancestors, the Carrillo family of California here. I have additional experience in politics and entertainment. Having worked for the LA County Board of Supervisors as they ran the 5th largest economy in the world, I had the opportunity to collaborate with Senators, members of Congress, and heads of state. My role focused on issues affecting women in LA County. After politics, I worked at 20th Century Fox Studios in their top television department with the A-list in entertainment and media. The experience of working in high-stakes politics and for a legendary “Big Six” movie studio and media giant elevated my writing to new levels, while rewarding me immensely from the hands-on experience of working side by side with renowned captains of industry.
FIRST PAGE GOOGLE RANKED WRITER
I call myself a Word Coder because my writing—not SEO—has earned me a top, first page ranking from Google. With more than 4 million blog posts per day vying for a top, first-page ranking, Google’s Rank Brain algorithm indexed my writing at #2—one slot below #1 Vogue—and above #3 Vanity Fair, and topping other the Madison Avenue journalistic juggernauts Harper’s Bazaar, Wall Street Journal, Elle, Town & Country, and Huffington Post when writing about the same topic.
In 2013, MTV online added my hip-hop infused “Round-Up Of The Week In Politics” for their nationwide content as “Top Story of the Day” viewing it as a way for politics to resonate with young people.
In 2017, my descriptive storytelling-style writing was used to create the movie poster theme for the National Geographic documentary LA92, which won an Emmy, and was on the top 10 short list for a 2018 Academy Award nomination.
Running my own writing and editing service has led me to write for law, real estate and design professionals in Los Angeles whose clients include LeBron James, Lady Gaga, John Legend, Charlie Puth, Meghan Trainor, Puffy Combs, Wolfgang Puck, Paul Marciano of Guess, superstar music manager, Troy Carter, and ultra-luxury real estate developer, Mohamed Hadid (father to supermodels Gigi and Bella), as well as global conglomerate brands like DuPont.
Although an independent contractor, I am lead copywriter for a branding agency whose clients include L.A.’s professional sports teams, the Lakers, Dodgers, Clippers and Kings, as well as popular brands such as Jack Daniels, Warner Bros., Starbucks, Bacardi and Ford. My role is to help IDLA foray into the realm of personal branding by providing sophisticated, original content for their clients’ websites, including personal biographies, About pages, brochures, speeches and more.
