Kerry Volk is a return resident to the city of North Battleford and has been interested in writing since as far back as he can remember. Kerry grew up in the community, but left in 2000, and since has lived in places like Canmore, Brooks, Calgary and Edmonton, Alta. During his travels, he honed his writing skills at Medicine Hat College, SAIT and the University of Calgary. Kerry also worked in Alberta as an electrician, holds a Diploma in Journalism from SAIT and a Degree in Communications from the University of Calgary. He currently works as a marketing and event co-ordinator for Battlefords Tourism and is active in the community. Writing is his life and reading is a constant passion.
