Kerry Fisher


Born in Peterborough, UK, Kerry Fisher studied French and Italian at Bath University, followed by several years working as an English teacher in Corsica and Spain before topping the dizzying heights of holiday rep and grape picker in Tuscany. She eventually succumbed to 'getting a proper job' and returned to England to study Periodical Journalism at City University. After two years working in the features department at Essentials magazine in London, love carried her off to the wilds of the West Pennine moors near Bolton. She now lives in Surrey with her husband (of whisking off to Bolton fame), teenage son, 11-year-old daughter and a very naughty lab/schnauzer called Poppy. Kerry can often be seen trailing across the Surrey Hills whistling and waving pieces of chicken while the dog practises her 'talk to the tail'.

Kerry has spent half her life talking about writing a novel, then several years at Candis magazine reviewing other people's but it wasn't until she took some online courses with the UCLA that the dream started to morph into reality, culminating in the publishing of The Class Ceiling last year. That book has just been bought by the Avon imprint of HarperCollins - soon to be renamed The School Gate Survival Guide - along with her next book, The Divorce Domino, which won first prize at the 2011 York Festival of Writing for the opening line: 'I was wearing the wrong bra for sitting in a police cell'.
