Kerry Gibb is the author of the It’s A Kid’s Life series. Inspired by her four sons, Kerry had a lightbulb moment one night and decided to write a book that would have them laughing out loud. This quickly grew into a whole series of five books, the third of which, Double Digits, was a finalist in the IAN Book of the Year Awards in 2018. Thousands and thousands of children have now read these books and Kerry regularly visits schools to talk about her experience as an author and run creative writing workshops as she fulfils her dream of inspiring children and bringing them laughter through her books.
Graduating from the University of Sussex in 1999, with an Hons degree in Social Psychology, Kerry took a keen interest in the psychological development of children. This combined with experiencing life through the eyes of her own four sons undoubtedly ignited the spark that became It’s A Kid’s Life.
Kerry likes the simple things in life, and lives by the philosophy – be kind, be loving, and be happy.
