Kerry Christoileas is a Melbourne based author who aspired to become a writer from a young age. She takes pleasure in living a free-spirited lifestyle including road trips and outdoor adventures. She is at her best when she is embracing mother nature with a house blend coffee in one hand and pen in the other. Born in 1961, she was raised in a strict Greek family and was the second eldest of five children. She resided in the suburb of Kensington for most of her teenage years. Though her parents had hoped for her to aspire academically, she decided to leave school indefinitely at 16 and pursue a career in hairdressing in which she became quite the success owning and managing her own salon.
At 20 years old, she married the love of her life and raised three children only to come to the realisation after thirty-three years that perhaps not every marriage can evolve and survive the forever changing relationship continuum. Divorce ensued as did the opportunity to travel solo across the world, to soul search and re-create herself and finally see her first book come to fruition.
