About Jane Kerr
Jane Kerr grew up in North Wales and wrote her first book at the age of seven. 'The Jones Family have a Picnic' was not a big-seller, but it sparked a life-long love of writing and story-telling.
After a brief detour working as speech therapist, she trained as a journalist, and has since written for newspapers, online, radio and television. The story telling never stopped. She is married with two children and a guinea pig.
