Kelsey is a speculative fiction writer known for her dark sense of humor, wildly inappropriate ideas and occasionally foul mouth.
Nothing gets her more excited than a well-written line and nothing turns her off more than people who have nothing to say but insist on speaking. Before launching her writing career, Kelsey dabbled in law enforcement and teaching, finding both simultaneously rewarding and devastating and she continues to be passionate about both. At 0200 hours on Wednesday, August 26th, 2015, she woke up in the midst of a panic attack because she realized she wasn’t getting any younger. The fear that she would never realize her dreams drove her into a frenzy of creation that has lead to countless paper cuts, one concussion, the loss of her beloved Spock necklace, and her husband nearly declaring her missing.
