Kerry Wood has been writing both professionally and as a hobby for most of his life. At the age of 20, he wrote nine sets of curriculum for the United States Air Force (USAF) which were approved through the University of Maryland to be accredited college courses under the Community College of the Air Force. Kerry served in the USAF for four years working in the capacity of federal law enforcement, serving in both Washington, DC, and Saudi Arabia. Kerry worked in many areas of law enforcement including Behavioral Science, Forensics, and Technical Training.
Kerry also spent many years working as a software engineer, designing and developing medical software, specializing in cardiac applications. Kerry worked with Duke, Harvard, Cleveland Clinic, and many other entities in the United States and Japan. In his last year of medical application development (2005), the cardiac catheterization application he developed, was ranked number one in a national survey of hospitals, performed by the American College of Cardiology.
For more than a decade, Kerry owned and operated the successful Dark Horse Strategy Group, a political firm specializing in campaign strategy. Kerry managed campaigns ranging from school board to US Presidential and was the Event Director for one of the US Presidential Debates, held at Wofford College and broadcast on CBS for the 2012 election cycle.
Kerry self-published the book #FakeNews (available on Amazon) in March 2017, but having largely removed himself from politics and having such a colorful background to draw upon, Kerry is now focusing on more mainstream writing. He recently completed a new manuscript titled Soulmate.
Kerry became a grandfather for the first time, to triplets (all girls) in January 2017.
Kerry has completed more than a dozen half-marathons, a full marathon, triathlons, a Spartan Beast, and spends much of his time training as a triathlete with the goal of soon competing in an Ironman.
