Most of her time involves books – either writing books, reading books, or making altered art books. Her first chapter book, Curse of the Double Digits, debuted in October 2012. Under the pseudonym BBH McChiller she’s co-author of Monster Moon, a fun, spooky mystery series for ages 8 – 12 (Stargazer Publishing). Curse at Zala Manor is the first book in the series, and Secret of Haunted Bog is the second title. Her story, “The Jobo Tree” won her Highlights for Children’s Author of the Month Award.

This is a wonderful fast read for any kid approaching the dreaded double digits. After turning ten years old, Becky experiences her worst couple of days ever. With the help of her best friend, supportive parents, and an unexpected, thoughtful gift from a cute guy, Becky learns that double digits aren't so bad. A great story to help teach kids about how things could always get worse, but usually everything turns out for the best.
Bottom line: Fun, enjoyable read! I'll definitely be reading more by Ms. Kelley.
