After the birth of her first child in 1999, Kerri completed a BA in English and Linguistics, and returned to her first love, writing. She has worked as a copywriter and freelance writer for nine years, and in that time has written extensively for mainstream media and parenting magazines, including the Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, the Telegraph, Sunday Life, Littlies (New Zealand) and Notebook.
Kerri also has a long-standing, humorous column in the Australian Jewish News, Life And Other Crises, in which she details the endless dramas of her domestic life. Kerri's stories are usually funny, occasionally deeply moving, and always highly personal, and cover everything from weight loss to friendship, sex, parenthood and grief.
In May 2009 Kerri joined Twitter, and quickly built up a following of over 2,000. She began blogging shortly afterwards at lifeandothercrises.blogspot.com, and in 2010 was shortlisted for Australasian Blogger of the Year.
Kerri is married to Tony, a workaholic architect. They live in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney with their three children - a son aged eleven, and two daughters aged nine and three - and their recalcitrant bunny rabbit.
