About the Author

Kerri Sackville

After the birth of her first child in 1999, Kerri completed a BA in English and Linguistics, and returned to her first love, writing. She has worked as a copywriter and freelance writer for nine years, and in that time has written extensively for mainstream media and parenting magazines, including the Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, The Telegraph, Sunday Life magazine, the Child group of magazines, Littlies magazine (New Zealand) and Notebook magazine.

Kerri also has a long-standing, humorous column in the Australian Jewish News, 'Life And Other Crises', in which she details the endless dramas of her domestic life.

Kerri's stories are usually funny, occasionally deeply moving, and always highly personal, and cover everything from weight loss to friendship, sex, parenthood and grief. In May 2009 Kerri joined Twitter, and quickly built up a following of more than 2000. She began blogging shortly afterwards at lifeandothercrises.com, and in 2010 was shortlisted for Australasian Blogger of the Year.

Kerri is also a regular contributor and popular figure on the enormously successful website Mamamia.com.

Kerri is married to Tony, a workaholic architect. They live in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney with their three children - a son and two daughters - and their recalcitrant bunny rabbit.

Praise for The Little Book Of Anxiety

“Sackville...has a gentle humour and impressive understanding of the mental processes that cause her to spiral down the rabbit hold of worry. This clarity, combined with her self-deprecation, means that she is able to bring the reader into the whirling centre of her panic attack while seeming rational, calm and in control. It’s an impressive e double act and will help anyone struggling with, or struggling to understand anxiety.”

Wellbeing Magazine

“It isn't a self-help book preaching solutions, but a story of [Sackville's] journey with anxiety that she hopes will show people they're not alone.”

Jennifer Ennion, Illawarra Mercury
