Rose Kerr grew up in a small community in Nova Scotia. She discovered mystery books at a young age and Agatha Christie was a favorite.
She attended Acadia University and after a disastrous year of Home Economics, switched to a much better fit in Recreation and Physical Education. After graduating from Acadia University, Rose worked as Coordinator for the NS Figure Skating Association. There she worked with skaters, administrators and coaches. She travelled across the country for competitions with the athletes.
She and her husband moved to Northern Manitoba where they worked in mining and for a government organization. After being in the north for two years, they moved to Marathon, Ontario.
They raised their family in the small town. Rose worked as a distance education administrator helping students discover opportunities for education and work. The town was located on the shore of Lake Superior and the family took advantage of the scenic location and local parks.
When their children left to go to University, Rose started working on her creative writing.
Participating and winning at NaNoWriMo several times. She and her husband moved to Timmins, in northern Ontario, for work. There Rose met up with a writers’ group that provided additional encouragement and support in her writing.
Once Rose retired, she began to follow her passion for writing and studied the craft of writing through workshops and webinars. She also joined Sisters in Crime, and the online Guppy Chapter of Sisters in Crime.
She began querying agents and is working with Dawn Dowdle of Blue Ridge Literary Agency. Rose and her husband have made one last move (they hope!) to Southern Ontario where their family lives and the climate is warmer. Their dog, Jake, has made the move with them.
