Kerri Andrews originally comes from Worcestershire but has lived in Scotland for the past ten years. For most of that time she has lived in the Scottish Borders south of Edinburgh.

She took her undergraduate degree at Loughborough University before moving to the University of Leeds to complete first a Masters and then a PhD in women’s literature. At Leeds she discovered the delights of the Yorkshire Dales, before falling in love first with the Lake District and then the Scottish mountains. She has so far climbed over 120 of Scotland’s Munros.

She lives in Scotland with her husband and two young children.

Wanderers is Kerri’s first book for a wide audience.
