Her stories, such as Not Norman, A Goldfish Story, a Jumpstart Read for the Record book; Vampire Baby; Your Daddy Was Just Like You; Dance, Y’all, Dance; and One Day I Went Rambling, an Illinois Library Association’s iREAD selection, celebrate imagination, families, friends, pets… all that goes into being a kid! Upcoming, in celebration of the 15th anniversary of Not Norman, a new adventure with our finny fish, Norman, One Amazing Goldfish, will publish in 2020!

Kelly is a graduate of VCFA’s Writing for Children and Young Adults program, and long-standing member of SCBWI and The Author’s Guild. A former ARA for SCBWI-Houston, Kelly now divides her time between Westhampton Beach, NY and Mimiville (which is anywhere her grandboys may be!).
