About Me

Kerry Egan and her family moved to South Carolina last year and fell in love with their new home. They have been exploring the little towns, beaches, cities, festivals, parks, playgrounds and mountains of this beautiful state. Her children (Jimmy, who's eight, and Mary Frances, who's six) mostly want to explore amusement parks, mini golf, go-karts and ice cream stands. Kerry mostly wants to stare at the waves crashing on the beach and go for long hikes in the woods. Her husband, Alex, just wants to see a wild alligator.

Kerry has written for national print and online publications, including Parenting, American Baby, CNN.com, Beliefnet.com and Readers' Digest. She is the author of Fumbling: A Pilgrimage Tale of Love, Grief, and Spiritual Renewal on the Camino de Santiago (Doubleday, 2004) and her essays have appeared in several collections. She's currently at work on a second book. When she's not writing, she also works as a hospice chaplain. When she's not working at all, she spends her time with her fearless travel companions and their enormous and wildly affectionate dogs in Columbia
