Episode 38: Kerry Fisher

Kerry Fisher

Kerry Fisher spent half her life talking about writing a novel, then several years at Candis magazine reviewing other people's.

It wasn't until she took some online courses with the UCLA (University of California) that the dream started to morph into reality, culminating in the self-publishing of The Class Ceiling.

The Avon imprint of HarperCollins picked it up and retitled it The School Gate Survival Guide, publishing in summer 2014.

Kerry's second book, The Island Escape, came out in May 2015.

It won first prize at the York Festival of Writing for the opening line: ‘I was wearing the wrong bra for sitting in a police cell'.

Her latest novel, After the Lie, was published by Bookouture in April 2016.
