Kerri Peek was born in the Barrio of North Denver, Colorado. Peek started writing before she was even in Kindergarten, it was a short, illustrated story about the season of winter. When she went to college the first time Peek wrote for the University of Colorado at Denver`s paper called "The Advocate" as a Features and News writer, winning several awards for an interview with then Vice-President Al Gore.
Then having been forced to drop out of college her sophmore year for financial reasons, Peek had all but stopped writing with the exception of a hodgepodge of poetry, short stories and political essays being published. Upon returning back to Denver, Colorado; Kerri Peek began writing again and is looking to hone her unique writing style.
Now Peek is attending college again in the hopes of getting a Bachelors of Social Work and hopes to work in the Barrio where she grew up. Peek wishes to use her career as a social worker to promote the needs of la Raza, while still writing as her passion and her art.
