Vic Kerry spent nearly 12 years on a psychiatric unit– as a therapist. He “retired” to become an English teacher. He earned an MFA in writing popular fiction from Seton Hill University, where he had the opportunity to study with likes of Michael A. Arnzen, Tim Waggoner, and Scott A. Johnson.
He also earned a BS in psychology from the University of Alabama (before the reign of Nick Saban), a MS in clinical psychology from the University of South Alabama, and a BA in English from Athens State University. Currently none of those degrees are being used on a regular basis.
Vic and his wife live in the part of rural Alabama known for closed coal mines and the industrial production of methamphetamine. They have four dogs: Hermes Elton Hercules John Reginald Kenneth Dwight, Napoleon, Lady Jack Ketchum, and Penny Dreadful (who they found abandoned in a cemetery). They are the domestic servants for two cats: Daisy and Hercules.
