Kerry was born in Kent (UK) with ENT problems and although operations allowed her to hear she still suffers from rhinitis. Kerry also suffered from mental health concerns due to having bipolar, OCD and epilepsy. After school, whilst expecting her first child, she taught herself her A-levels and passed with As and Bs. Kerry, determined to find a way to live life to the full, developed a portfolio of life experiences. She wanted to experience the world and subsequently went on to have five more children (one sadly passed), travelled to over 40 countries mostly with her children and practised a range of sports; martial arts, yoga, ski-ing, ballet, kayaking, snorkelling, boating, parasailing, horse-riding and much more.
Kerry settled in Ireland after spending two months travelling the world with her children. She had already completed 100 professional qualifications including 20 at university level. Kerry specialised in the social sciences and psychology. For seven years Kerry wrote as a form of journalling therapy to control the mood swings associated with bipolar. The writing was a private outlet, but in 2015 after entering the poetry marathon and completing 100 poems in 15 styles and 6 languages Kerry decided to submit for publication.
Her work was immediately accepted by ‘Short Fiction Break,’ ‘Entropy,’ ‘Peeking Cat,’ ‘VoicesIreland,’ ‘Some Poets Anthologies’ and ‘NDERF.’ Two of the Chapbooks in which she featured made the Chapbook Charts and her own edited multi-author chapbook reached number one!
Kerry worked continually from 2015 to 2016 putting together all of her work, writing additional pieces and working on her own life coaching ‘Affirmations and Actions’ to allow others to fulfil their potential in every aspect of life, whilst using her written fiction to allow pensive thought by the reader in applying the coaching aspects. Kerry also writes to entertain and loves tales that twist and turn, presenting the yin and yang of living from the darkest parts of humanity to the most exquisite sights in nature.
‘Tackling the Bear’ puts the spiritual, the social, the vocational, the natural, the supernatural, the philosophical and the moral world in the readers’ hands. She presents life, she lives life and hopes to thoroughly share this with the reader!
