Lana Kerr (Ke Lan – 柯兰) grew up in a small country town in New Zealand, and was educated at Te Awamutu College. After marrying Peter and raising five children, the author and her husband moved to Australia; later moving to China for some years, working as ESL Teachers. Belatedly realising teaching was in her blood, this became a life changing experience for her.
Lana started writing poetry, expanding into creative writing. In her fifties Lana decided she needed to further her education, aquiring her International TESOL Teaching Licence in 2005, Bachelor of Arts in 2009; Master of Arts in Writing in 2012, and Certificate in Editing and Proofreading in 2012.
Lana has established a website, www.englishstoriesforfun.com with the intention of providing students and ESL teachers with entertaining short stories that can be used as leisure reading or classroom activities.
Lana now lives in Australia. When she left China, after teaching there, she was ready for some new challenges, and settling down wasn’t quite what she wanted, especially after living in different cities in China, where her life was constantly changing, always interesting, where every day brought some new kind of excitement. So Lana and her husband are based on the Gold Coast, but freqently travel and do house sitting. (See the story about house sitting). Why not check out Lana’s blog about house sitting and see what she is up to today. Check out this link: http://www.housesittingtails.blogspot.com.au/
