Kelley has been writing for as long as she can remember. She won her first writing contest in third grade for an essay she wrote on, “Tomorrow’s Leaders on the Move”. Like dreams sometimes do, they fell to the background for a while. She married her best friend, worked full time, and started her family. In 2004 Kelley, her husband and their new baby girl made a move from Oregon to Southern California and that’s when everything changed. As a stay-at-home mom for the first time, her passion for writing flared to life again.
Things haven’t been the same since.
With two incredible daughters, an awesome husband and her days spent writing what she loves, Kelley considers herself the luckiest girl in the world. She still resides in sunny Southern California, where she loves spending time with her family and sneaking away to the bookstore with her laptop.
I was always one of those little girls who dreamed about growing up and writing stories. I love character-driven stories, and I’m not embarrassed to admit, I’m a total romantic at heart. I adore exploring the whole journey of falling in love. Whether it’s a story about characters stumbling, reluctantly in love, or a heartfelt story that breaks your heart and puts it back together again. It can be paranormal, contemporary, or anything in between, but if you ask me there’s nothing better for the soul than a good love story.
But I promise you, as much as I enjoy the romance, I also love delving into personal growth with my characters. There will always be an emotional journey they embark on and I hope you enjoy taking the ride along with them.
