Basalt columns off the shore of Vik, Iceland

The Luminosity of Shadows

“Your characters and themes are fantastic. Your descriptions of the landscape are gorgeous, as are your turns of phrase…the ethos of [The Luminosity of Shadows] had me hook, line, and sinker.” – Freelance Editor

My Heart Walks in Pieces

“It’s like Kerri’s writing says exactly what my heart is feeling.” – Beta reader

Grandma's Love

“This is perfect. I want a copy for all of my grandchildren!” – Beta Reader/Professional Editor

Laughter and tears are both beautiful things; they mean that, despite everything, your heart is holding on to the knowledge that life is still worth living.
