BIO: Kerri Nelson has always been passionate about reading books but

when she wrote her first poem in the second grade, she discovered her

love of writing. At the age of sixteen, she became a columnist for her

local newspaper as the high school correspondent for the weekly "Panther

Tales" column. She won the Outstanding Young Journalist of the Year

Award for her efforts.

After an education and career in the legal field, Kerri began to pen

romantic suspense novels with a legal or law enforcement theme. She

currently lives in the sunny south with her romance inspiring husband

and her adorable children. When she's not reading or writing,

you'll find her baking homemade goodies for her family. Kerri is an

active member of Romance Writers of America, Southern Magic Romance

Writers, Hearts Through History Romance Writers, Celtic Hearts Romance

Writers, and Futuristic Fantasy & Paranormal Romance Writers.

In addition, Kerri has been contracted to publish eight books with four

different publishers in multiple genres. She continues to pitch both

live and online to agents and editors on a monthly basis and has

received requests for nearly one hundred percent of her pitches! Check
