Travis Kealy


Before they met, both Travis Kealy and Della Turner had been lifelong freelance writers, separately authoring ad copy, PSA dialogue, news articles, monographs, commentaries and short stories for various newspapers, radio and t.v. stations, periodicals, academic journals and other publications. Never limiting themselves to the constraints of only one genre, they now jump from humor to mystery to poetry—from fiction to non-fiction in the click of a mouse.

Ever open to new opportunities, they were clearly encouraged by their discovery of Ebooks. Concurrently, they offered their first online fictions as Co-Authors. Ever versatile and always entertaining, in print or in person, Travis and Della have also worked in tandem as performing musicians, composers and teachers. A married couple, they make their home on Florida's East Coast.

Their plans for the future include many more short stories and a number of books and novels.
