Author: Kelly Abell

I'm a writer! Yippee! I've always wanted to do this my entire life. What's even cooler? Now I get paid to do it because of wonderful folks like you, the Readers! I am compelled to write stories you will enjoy and want to share with others.

I am a native of Virginia, but now live in the Sunshine state with my family. I have two kids (not of the goat variety), one dog who can open her own Christmas presents(see photos below if you don't believe me!), and a hamster. Clyde (the hamster) can't open his own Christmas presents but we won't hold that against him. He's still really cute and master of his own wheel.

I work a full time job as an insurance consultant and long for the day I can write full time (hint, hint). I really love to read, enjoy spending time with my family, and soaking up the Florida sun
