Born and raised in Oregon, Kelly L. Tharp grew up in the college town of Corvallis.
An Occupational Therapist of 36 years, collects cats like psychotic cat, Rocky (RIP) - closet monster, Tian Tian - giant fur ball with legs - and newcomer, (Found abandoned ) Miss Bee Bee, the bed hog. When she isn’t trying desperately to learn how to write active voice, a language as foreign as Mandarin, she is an accomplished artist of space pictures from the Hubble telescope and NASA. A trip to see the Shuttle Atlantis take off last year let her check off one item on her bucket list. Other interests include Chinese calligraphy, knitting, and gardening – roses especially, plus service to the community via the Lion’s Club International. Every year she turns into Mrs. Santa Claus for the annual Corvallis Downtown Christmas parade.
Telling stories started at an early age with a group of pen pals taking on the persona of Star Trek characters – she was Scotty. Over the years her stories were published in Star Wars Fanzine’s after which she started own her own full length novels. As she often says about her crazy interest in trying to put her stories into words, “It keeps me off the streets.”
