Kerryn grew up the daughter of a professor in a New England college town. But her mother was a devotee of ‘Olde’ England – its antiques, mystery novels and vacation opportunities. As a girl, Kerryn spent a year in England and another in Ireland, with several shorter trips for good measure. All of her favorite authors were British – Georgette Heyer, Mary Stewart, and of course Jane Austen.
Though a piece of her heart still lives across the pond, she’s lived in Florida long enough to feel like a native. That’s where she wrote the first sentence of LEARNING TO WALTZ, way back when. Years later she joined a local writing group and realized how much she had to learn. That first sentence? It’s not there anymore.
LEARNING TO WALTZ survived, though, and was published in November 2013. It’s a tender, heartfelt Regency historical about love, fear, and persistence.
