My name is Kerrie McKinnel. I am a writer based in south-west Scotland. My writing tends to be character-driven, present-day fiction with a focus on family and relationships. I read and write in whatever spare time I have left after I’ve done my “real” job – looking after my two young children!

I run creative writing workshops and events, and in 2018 I became the events manager for my local writing group, Lockerbie Writers.
