Kerry Buchanan's picture

Kerry Buchanan

Kerry Buchanan is a vet who retired when her disability left her unable to carry out the duties required. Since then she's designed leukaemia patient databases, researched high pressure food processing, taught ICT to people who were convinced computers would explode in their face if they hit the wrong key, and run her own livery business.

Kerry lives on a farm in amongst the drumlins of County Down in Northern Ireland, surrounded by animals, both two- and four-legged. The view from every window provides inspiration for her stories which is the reason, she says, for her productivity.

These days, she's a full-time carer for her father, who is 93 and suffers from dementia, but still makes time to write prolifically. She was been lucky enough to win an ACNI SIAP award in 2019 and then a second ACNI award in the summer of 2020.

Her short stories are widely published, including The Armada Tree, which won Kraxon Magazine's Story of the Year Award (2019), but she is only now beginning to submit some of her novels.
