About Kerry Johnston

Kerry is a freelance writer and copy editor from Johannesburg. She’d like you to picture her curled up on a chaise lounge with a mystery novel and a fine vintage. But you’re more likely to find her behind the wheel of her SUV, carting her son from A-Z, and reminding her husband that, just like Harry Potter, golf clubs belong in the cupboard under the stairs.
