Bess Kercher indulged her love of stories at Davidson College, where she majored in English and dabbled in creative writing.  She later graduated with an M.A. in Organizational Communication from Queens University of Charlotte, and began freelance writing shortly thereafter.

 

She contributed to charlotteobserver.com from 2013-2017 on their MomsCharlotte platform, authoring parenting essays and the blogs Worst Mom Ever, Miracle on Curbstone Street, Mom and Pop, Because Friends, Team Mom, and A Few Good Moms: Can you handle the truth? She once won a writing contest as a blogger for skirt.com and her prize was a copy of the book My Formerly Hot Life, which seemed cruelly apropos, but still made her day . . . because there’s nothing like putting yourself out there and then feeling like someone gets you.

 

She currently enjoys a cozy lukewarm life in Charlotte, North Carolina with her husband, two sons, and family mascot/dog, Maddie.
