Kelly was born in Stepney in East London,and now currently resides in Plymouth, Devon. She has spent many years writing children's fiction for her two children as a hobby, leaving them both with fond memories of those stories up to this day.
She has completed several online courses in writing for children over the years, but has only recently decided to take her writing serious and is currently in her second year at University studying for degree in creative writing.
Rhyming verse is a particular favorite of Kelly's, though University is opening up a whole new area of writing that she had not previously considered. Her all time favorites include, Julia Donaldson and Edward lear.
Her current works include 'The Cathalump and the Lemal', an extended version of the fable on how the camel came to get it's hump and 'Hannah the Horrid' which is a tale of a horrid girl who gets taken away by magical mice.
