Kerri Yarsley was born in Melbourne, Australia in the late ‘50’s. She studied Biochemistry, Microbiology, Education, and Computers at university. After marriage, Kerri worked as a Systems Programmer and attained Fitness Leader’s qualifications and trained in martial arts.
Kerri and Frank had four children in six years, so Kerri changed into documenting which was more easily done from a home base. Over two decades later Kerri is still enjoying writing and learning new things. She has more recent diplomas in Business and Project Management, and has also studied a variety of interests including piano, chanter, guitar, flute, oil painting, singing, bee keeping, Taekwondo, Aikido and Kung Fu weapons, such as the sai, short sticks, long staff, nunchaku and straight sword.
Kerri loves peaceful forest surroundings occasionally disrupted by her chooks, dog and multiple wild birds, including finches, scrub turkeys and black cockatoos. She loves vegetarian food and her lifestyle reflects her love and respect of all life.
In 2011, Kerri wrote “The Instruction Manual for Kids – Parent’s Edition” because there wasn’t one, and it seemed to be needed more and more. Later years have seen title become available in eBook and audiobook formats.
