Kerryn Reid

Goodreads Author

in Gainesville, Florida, The United States



Member Since
July 2013


Kerryn grew up the daughter of a professor in a New England college town. But her mother was a devotee of ‘Olde’ England – its antiques, mystery novels and vacation opportunities. As a girl, Kerryn spent a year in England and another in Ireland, with several shorter trips for good measure.

After high school, she traveled around the British Isles with her best friend, using trains and thumbs. Perhaps inevitably, they fell in love with a couple of Irish lads – oh, those gorgeous accents! Roaming the Rock of Cashel in the dark with your first love? Totally illicit, totally romantic!

Her love for the man didn’t last. But a piece of Kerryn’s heart still lives "across the pond," where so many adventures took place – as well as the Regency romances

Kate Vale Kerryn: I just found your email where you mentioned my 1st place win for DESTINY'S SECOND CHANCE. I'm so excited to see how it does after it launches on Oct. 20. Thanks for your mention of the award. Without any internet access, I wasn't sure what was happening until you and some other people sent me emails/tweets/etc. that I finally was able to catch up with. Ha!
