Biography

I am 39 years old and live in Auckland, New Zealand. I work full time as a Personal Assistant for a rescue helicopter, but have dreams of writing full time.

I have a partner, Will, and a cat, Sushi.

I have always been interested in writing and apparently used to carry around a notepad and pen when I was a child (or so I'm told). The moment I knew I was "hooked" though was when I did a 'writing for film' course at my local unitec. Over the past 19 years I have written a number of poems (mainly rhyming and haiku), short stories, short plays and short film scripts.

The last 2 years have been the most rewarding for me. I had a 10 min play accepted into a worldwide short play festival (Short and Sweet Festival), which made it into the top 10 (out of 1,100 plays). I have also had a couple of stories published in a book which my writing group put together, called 'Writers in the Library'. We have also produced a radio show of our stories/poems and are in the process of getting this produced into a 3 disk set.

At the beginning of this year I also completed a Diploma in writing for children.

I am very excited about what is to come and am pleased to have found this site.

Smashwords book reviews by Kerrie Anne Spicer

  • The Little Brown Sparrow on Sep. 20, 2011

    What a lovely story, with a deeper meaning. I'm new to this site and this is the first book I've read, but thanks for making it FREE so I could enjoy it. I love the descriptive way you write. It was interesting and sweet, and I actually felt quite emotional. I think we have all experienced low self esteem/rejection at some stage in life, so this story resonated with me. Thanks again!
  • The Devil Inside Me: A short story on Dec. 30, 2011

    Along with the other reviewers, I too loved the ending and can see the resemblence with Edgar Allan Poe, one of my favourite authors of this genre. Great dialogue also. Well done.

    I do like this, you are a real story-teller. However I did get snagged a few times because I felt the story changed tenses (present to past). Then again, it could just be me. I get stuck with this myself.

    'Rum-inations' - beautiful.
