About Me

DSC_0411“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer.” Psalm 19:14

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

My name is Kerry and I’m a child of God, mommy, wife, sister, daughter, writer, reader, lover of the outdoors, and chai tea addict.

I’m a nonsensical mix of social but mostly introverted, tomboy but occasionally feminine, clean but not particularly organized, sarcastic but overly sensitive, laid-back but too uptight, and creative but not really artistic.

I married the handsome blond teenager who teased me over the Whopper board at Burger King twenty years ago. I’m grateful for the steady, loyal man God chose for me and the two sweet monkeys (actually, we’re pretty sure they’re boys) we’ve been blessed with.

My devotional, Grace for the Gaps, is available on Amazon, and my first contemporary story semi-finaled in the American Christian Fiction Writers’ Genesis Contest. A Middle Grade trilogy has set up camp in my imagination; I’ve finished book one and am over halfway through book two. What a special blessing it was to have Round Remembering: Escape to Stone Mountain final in ACFW’s Genesis Contest in 2015. Then God knocked my socks off even more when the story won first place at the Florida Christian Writers Conference for Middle Grade.

I love my kids/characters, and can’t wait to share their story!

Playing make-believe with words is so much fun. Doing it for God? That’s the best.

I enjoy meeting and learning from other writers on this journey of faith and words. If you’d like to reach me, my email is candidkerry@gmail.com.

    Kerry, this is one of the most interesting writer bios I’ve read. Your Voice comes shining through. Love it!

    Wow! You are a very good writer! I see myself in a lot of what you described. That creative but not artistic thing really sheds light on me! Ha!

    Where are you at with your book?

      Hi Holly,
      I apologize for the delayed answer. I’ve finished my first book, but I’m still editing through it. It’s never-ending. 🙂 I’ll write a synopsis then will be sending it off to agents and publishers. Nerve-wracking but the Lord is so good and He’s lead me this way.
      Thank you for asking and stopping by to comment!
      God Bless ~ Kerry

    I’ll definitely be checking out your blog more closely. I also write, and how it is to the glorification of God. I’ve kind of told Him that if he wants to show up in my writing that is fine, He simply put Himself there. And He has, from time to time. I just ask that He don’t make me sound preachy, because I don’t want to sound preachy.

    It’s nice to find another writer with similar writing goals.

    Hi Kerry: I love your site and your writing. I’m looking forward, along with Rick Christensen and others, to meeting you soon at one of our Brandon Christian Writers group meetings. Feel free to invite friends and if you have questions, my e-mail is cherylbethjohnston@mac.com. I write for Focus Magazine. Congratulations on two published books and the article in Overflow, too! I plan to purchase.
