Fast Facts: Kerri Voss


In my fictional world, there are lots of triangles. One of them will only be seen when you finally get to read Trevor’s Song.

One of the other triangles involves Trevor, Mitchell, and Mitchell’s wife, Kerri. You’ve already met the boys here and here. So now it’s time for the girl.

1. Kerri Voss left her hometown of Pittsburgh because she’d been accepted at the very picky Riverview Art Academy. Kerri was going to be an artist.

2. Although Kerri liked to turn her radio to KRVR when she worked, she couldn’t have identified a single member of ShapeShifter even after the day she noticed the hot blonde in a leather biker jacket looking over the tomatoes in her favorite grocery store. And even then, it took a few weeks — and a driver’s license — before she realized the hot blonde wasn’t a struggling musician like he’d initially led her to believe.

3. Even though ShapeShifter fans are introduced to Mitchell’s wife in a variety of ways (she’ll play tech during his shows and help him switch guitars, and bands always need artwork, don’t they? T-shirts, album covers, website design…), Kerri won’t talk about her pre-Mitchell life, except to say she went to Riverview Art. Anything before that strangely doesn’t exist.

4. Trevor’s nicknamed her Rusty. Gotta read Trevor’s Song to find out why. But in typical Trevor fashion, there’s more than one easy reason.

5. The physical: she’s about five-nine, which plays nicely with Mitchell’s six-one. She’s got a willowy, dancer build although she was too busy pulling pranks to do something as serious as dance. And she’s got that deep red hair that fades to brown with age — unless it’s, as Trevor suspects, enhanced. Or is it?

Although Kerri doesn’t have a huge role in this outtake, it’s still one of my favorites. And it’ll show you a bit of this triangle in action.
