Kerry published her first children's book in 2016 and was immediately swept away into the exciting world of being an Author. Her first book 'It's A Kid's Life' was such a great hit with children aged seven to eleven that she wasted no time before starting the second book in the series.
Kerry now visits schools to share her success and promote reading and writing to children. She has four young sons of her own and so knows only too well how important it is to inspire kids. She writes with a natural sense of humour that has children laughing out loud as they get lost in a book that they can truly relate to.
Kerry lives in the UK with her husband, four sons and two cocker spaniel dogs. She likes the simple things in life and loves nothing more than a walk in the countryside with her family, watching them climb trees and run around without a care in the world. She lives by the philosophy – be kind, be loving and be happy.
It's A Kid's Life
A very funny book that children can immediately relate to!
Nine year old Ben Collins starts a new school where he quickly becomes friends with a boy named Tommy, who is very rich but has no brothers or sisters and his parents are never around. Tommy’s situation starts to make Ben appreciate his own big family a lot more. He gets up to a lot of mischief in the book, the main plot of which is running a secret tuck shop at school.
Various events unfold in the book including Ben falling for a girl at school named Lottie and the readers realisation that Ben’s dad is in fact actually his step dad and he has a very different relationship with his birth father who he sees every few weeks.
The book reaches a climax when Ben’s dog Obi is hit by a car and Ben uses the money from his secret school tuck shop to pay for Obi’s operation. It is a real heart warming ending for the readers with a great moral undertone where Ben comes clean to his Mum about the tuck shop to save Obi.
