Kelly Abell


I can't remember a time when I didn't want to write. From the time I was learned enough to string sentences together I liked writing stories. In high school I was the literary editor of our school magazine Sketches and had a series of short stories that I'd written even then. I'm published with two wonderful publishers, World Castle and Solstice Publishing, and on my own as an Indie.

I live in Florida with my two adult children and my husband of 30+ years. I have a wonderful dog named Snickers that can even open her own Christmas presents! (don't believe me? Look below) When I'm not working full time in the insurance industry, I write. I believe any writer should write because they love the craft. The rest will come in time. I hope you enjoy reading my stories as much as I've enjoyed writing them.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I wrote short stories all through high school, but seriously started writing in 2000. I figured it was a new millennium and the perfect time for me to take writing seriously. Now I'm hooked. I'm always looking for ways to improve my craft and feel I get better with every book I write.
What do you read for pleasure?
I enjoy contemporary romance, romantic suspense and thrillers. Some of my favorite authors are Nora Roberts, Dean Koontz, James Patterson, and Steven King.
