Kerry’s love of life, literature and a deep hunger for learning has been at the core of her being. Growing up in rural N.S.W. as a third-generation writer, her childhood was surrounded by animals, fiction characters, stories and verse. Kerry’s career in health; spanned thirty-five years. She combined University knowledge with her vast clinical, educational and administrative skills. Together they melded into a long and distinguished multi-faceted Nursing academic career. It was on the poor souls in her lectures and workshops; she fine-tuned her wicked nurse’s sense of humour. Early retirement due to illness however, saw Kerry return to her passion for the fiction novel. She soon discovered the world of the Indie Author. It was only a matter of time; she embarked on reviewing, critical evaluating, then mentoring and substantive editing. Finally, she decided to write her own novel. The Tales of Cerahya was born. It will be a multi-novel, humour infused, action packed fantasy adventure. It has been a journey of discovery and insight. Often infused with wonder, love and yes; at times frustration. Kerry now resides in a quiet sea-side community in Tasmania, with the love of her life, husband Ken and their small fur baby Molly; who believes she is human. Here Kerry has the best of both worlds, country living and the beach. Her only nemesis remains, ‘the spider’.
