Local mum, Kerrie Noor from Adrishaig is hoping to be discovered as a writer with her humorous story for women, Three Angry Women and A Baby.
Kerrie has entered the Page Turner Awards, where published and unpublished fiction and non-fiction from all genres can enter their writing to get discovered by high-profile judges from the literary world. In particular, Kerrie is hoping that one of the literary agents and publisher judges will get hooked on her story and publish her novel.
Kerrie works with Alzheimer’s Scotland helping Dementia patients and their families to adjust, cope, and plan for the future.
Why Three Angry Women and A Baby? Kerrie said the story is about three angry women who discover that there’s more to getting even than revenge. Three Angry Women and a Baby is a bittersweet comedy for readers who like believable full-bodied characters in crazy situations.
Touching on such themes as postnatal depression, sex in a wheelchair, and dominating partners, Three Angry Women and A Baby is a story of hope and laughter, with a decent slice of rural Scotland thrown in. It is a book of three stories in one, taken from the personal experiences of the author, weaved into fiction, to inspire other women.
Through her novel, Kerrie wants to show her belief that a woman can fall, make mistakes choose the wrong partner but in the end, she can find a way out, especially if she has friends.
Kerrie is a local writer who taught belly dancing years ago, performed in the local pantomime, and dabbled in comedy stand-up. Now she likes to write about such adventures creating an imaginary Argyll that is close to the truth than many would think. Her characters are pure imagination inspired by the characters she has met.
Kerrie would love to have the locals supporting her. Readers can vote for her book and add any constructive feedback to her story, thus helping her improve her chances of getting noticed by the judges.

Kerrie said, “The Page Turner Awards are a great opportunity for a writer to reach a wider audience, gain exposure in the media, and raise their profile locally. The awards encourage readers to get involved and give feedback, which for a writer can help create an even better book.”
The Page Turner Awards, sponsored by ProWritingAid, writers and authors the chance to enter unpublished or published fiction and non-fiction books, where a group of literary agents will read the work. Two writers are guaranteed to be published.
Hopefully, with feedback and votes from Adrishaig and Argyll residents, Kerrie will find literary representation.
