Artist: Trace KerrShe/Her/Hers

Artistic Discipline: Words
Location: Spokane, WA

Trace Kerr is a lifelong Pacific Northwesterner who never uses an umbrella when it rains.

When she’s not prowling the dusty shelves of some indie bookstore, she can be heard on Spokane Public Radio as the producer & co-host of the Brain Junk Podcast. She also recently joined the Taking Her Lead podcast as a co-host and is excited to interview women in leadership about their experiences.

Trace lives in Spokane with a gardening crazed chemist, one kid who’s still at home, several chickens, three cats, and a flatulent chocolate lab named Ruby.

Her first love is writing stories about queer teens and magic. THE NAMES WE TAKE is her first novel.
