Kerry Daggett is a first time author by night, professional artist/photographer by day. Her artistic career is varied; painter, photographer, designer, and, most recently, author. That's a combination of admitting to an addiction, and an apology ahead of time. On any given day she bounces between working on a painting, with clay, or her camera, and scribbling ideas on scraps of paper that just won't wait. Geographically, she grew up in upstate New York, after that she set out west in pursuit of adventure and to study fashion design and illustration. Eventually, making it to the west coast where she focused on painting, sculpting and then photography. It was from behind the lens of her camera that the idea for The Exhausted Goddess came into focus. Writing a novel was not on her creative to-do list. And its completion would not have happened without her daughter's contribution as editor, model and muse. With her book project completed, creatively it was time for a change of scenery and seasons. One impetuous road trip from San Diego later, she found herself in New England, reluctantly trading in the sun and her flip flops for shades of green, snow and boots. Currently, she is working on a long overdue sculpting project.
