About

Kerrie McKinnel is a writer and graduate from the University of Glasgow’s MLitt Creative Writing. Since completing her MLitt, Kerrie has run a number of successful writing workshops and events at venues including the Devil’s Porridge Museum, Shambellie House, and the National Centre for Children’s Literature and Storytelling. Her writing has been featured in publications including Gutter, Southlight and From Glasgow to Saturn.

In 2018, Kerrie co-founded writing group A Novel Approach; this active group continues to go from strength to strength. She was an active member of Lockerbie Writers group for six years (2015-21) and their Events Manager for three years; in that time, she ran a range of writing workshops, author talks, and compiled, co-edited and published three books for the group (Lockerbie Writers’ Anthology, Behind Closed Doors, and Book Week Scotland Poetry Safari Companion Booklet).

Kerrie lives in rural south-west Scotland with her husband and two young children. Her writing tends to be character-driven, present-day fiction with a focus on strong characters and relationships. She is inspired by beaches and forests, books and chocolate, and the occasional fleeting memory of what life used to be like before board books and toddler tantrums. She is currently working on her debut novel, and a series of children’s books featuring characters with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
