Kelly Woods


I have been writing short stories and poetry for a number of years, however decided in 2012 that my bucket list had to include becoming a published author. Thus began the debut novella 'All Bets Off'. While this book was being written, I also won 3rd place in the 2013 Country Women's Association of Victoria State Literary Competition for a poem with the theme '85 years old'.

Writing is a passion of mine, and it's how I escape the craziness of this world. I hope you enjoy my work and can escape with me!

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Writing has been a passion of mine for a long time. I've always loved the escape that a good book can provide. When I was young I read a lot of books, and I still love reading. I've also written a bit of poetry. Again, I feel that writing is how I can be creative as I can't draw or do 'arty' things...give me a pen and paper though and, with the right inspiration I'm there!
Who are your favorite authors?
I really enjoy Cathy Kelly, Jodi Picoult and Sylvia Day. But my all time idol for novels has to be Paullina Simons. The way she can encapsulate a character's life and leave you hanging and wondering years later about them I think is the mark of a brilliant author. I am eagerly awaiting the release of the 5th book in the 'Crossfire' series by Slyvia Day though! I also discovered John Green when I read The Fault in Our Stars, and I am now reading Paper Planes and hope to get on to Finding Alaska very soon.
