My name is Kelly. K.A. is my pen name. I've been married to my high school sweetheart for 21 years. We have two incredible boys 17 and 14. My family is the highlight of my existence.
I am a Christian writer who writes fantasy with underlying Christian themes. My first YA fantasy series, The Chosen Chronicles, is published with Snowy Peaks Media.
One of my favorite quotes is by C.S. Lewis "I never actually made a book. It's rather like taking dictation. I was given things to say." I often feel this way when I'm writing--that it's not really coming from me at all.
I'm a little weird, but I'm totally okay with that. I love to laugh and have fun. I read too much, eat too much, and worry too much. If it's fantasy I'll read it. If it's chocolate I'll eat it. If it's even remotely distressing, I'll worry about it.
I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ and being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I love all the opportunities my membership has given me to serve, learn, and grow.
Through my experiences, and the examples of the people I've been privileged enough to meet, I've learned that I am a product of my choices, not my circumstances.
I've learned my greatest joy comes from serving others, especially the youth. It was with them that I began sharing my writing, and because of their encouragement that I am sharing it now with the world.
My greatest desire is to create works that inspire as they entertain, teach morals as they plow through adventure, and help each reader recognize the amazing potential waiting to be discovered within themselves.
