Kelly (Lynn) Parra’s earliest stories were told with paintbrushes, but upon discovering the drama, forbidden love, and danger of romance and suspense novels, those paintbrushes were replaced with a keyboard.

Now a multi-published author in young adult and suspense fiction, she has created memorable characters such as a graffiti artist in GRAFFITI GIRL, a psychic teen in INVISIBLE TOUCH, orphan monster hunters in her Supernatural series, and a tough undercover narc in CRIMINAL INSTINCT. A two-time RITA finalist, she divides her time between her novels, freelance writing, and the adventures of motherhood, where she juggles her home life with two children, a tattooed husband, a sweet poodle, and a rowdy pit bull.

description: Supernatural hunters Jaz and Blake get trouble in their own backyard, the graveyard, when a ghoul is on the loose and looking for fresh meat. When an old friend tells them a much bigger evil is upon them, the couple become the hunted. Can they save each other before it's too late?
SUPERNATURAL HUNTERS is the first full-length novella to follow Jaz and Blake's whirlwind, butt-kicking romance started in PROM DATES TO DIE FOR and SOMETHING WICKED. (The story still stands alone for new readers.)

Concerned moved across his face. "Where are you going?"
"Just tell me, please. I need to know, without telling you anything else."

“The signs shifted in my mind like a kaleidoscope of visions.”
Kelly Parra, Invisible Touch

“Growing up in my neighborhood, kids had to act tough playing ball on the streets or parks. If you showed any fear, then you were usually beat down. But if you showed them you weren’t scared, they might just leave you alone.”
Kelly Parra, Graffiti Girl

“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”
William W. Purkey
