Rana Kelly


Rana Kelly was born in Birmingham, Alabama in 1977 but didn’t stay long. Her mother raised her in Tampa, FL and her father spent summers with her in Europe. As a child she grew up on the backs of horses, most of her best friends were of the hoof and paw persuasion. She spent her working years as a veterinary technician working in emergency medicine and regular practice with two years spent at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona.

She’s a published author of fiction and poetry and an amateur artist. She has founded a charity for the victims of domestic violence called Hamlet's Red Hands. She decided to start this charity after years of abuse from her now ex spouse. What she fights is more than well known to her. She is a survivor of emotional, physical, and sexual abuse. She is a mother of two. She currently lives in Tucson, Arizona with her Persian Puck (Pucky Ducky) and her dog, Emily Brontë.

    I wish my children were still of an age that I could read this to them. It made me smile and gave me goosebumps at the same time. Wonderful story. Wonderful remix of old faerytales. This seems to be just the kind of book to be illustrated and read to children. Lovely. You did well.
