Dee Kearney


Born in the North West of England, Dee spent many years working in Theatre and TV both as a Designer, Production/Stage Manager and Casting Agent for TV and Film. In 2001 she met David Vaughan (60s Psychedelia Artist) who convinced her to pursue her artwork. It was from there that she developed a passion for writing also. "When I wasn't painting, I would write and when I wasn't writing I would paint. It was all-consuming." David sadly died in 2003, but his influence stayed with her.

Recent family events caused a slight hiatus in her development as a writer, but now having moved to Kent with her husband Duncan to help with her disabled granddaughter, (who is hard work but an absolute joy!) she has settled and is writing once more with a vengeance in the heart of the beautiful Kent countryside.

She cites her Gemini personality for the need to write in several genres and she is equally happy absorbing herself in the creation of a children's adventure or entrenched in the grit of a fast paced thriller. Currently she is working on a family saga which she hopes to have completed by April 2019.
