Lana Kerr (Ke Lan - 柯兰) grew up in a small country town in New Zealand, and was educated at Te Awamutu College. After marrying Peter and raising five children, the author and her husband moved to Australia. They later moved to China for some years, working as ESL Teachers. Lana taught at several universities including Xiamen University, several private and public schools, and a Hotel Management School affiliated to a Sydney University. Belatedly realising teaching was in her blood, this became a life changing experience for her.
Apart from living in New Zealand and Australia, her time living in China has given her a great deal of experience dealing with Chinese people and learning how to manage in a country where she couldn’t speak the language and most people couldn’t speak English.
Lana has a TESOL International Teaching Licence, Certificate in Editing and Proof Reading, Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and Writing through Griffith University, Queensland, and Master of Arts in Writing through Swinburne University, Melbourne.
Lana lives on the Gold Coast, Australia.
