Lynne Kelly writes contemporary middle grade and young adult fiction. She was born in Galesburg, Illinois, grew up in Houston, lived in some much colder places, then found her way back to the Houston area, where she works as a sign language interpreter. For a few years she also taught special education, a good career for someone with excellent organizational and planning skills. Lacking those skills, she quit teaching in 2006 and thankfully has more time to write. But it was during those teaching years that she worked with some great kids and became interested in writing, so that all worked out.

Her debut novel, CHAINED, is out now from Macmillan/FSG. SONG FOR A WHALE is coming in the fall of 2018 from Random House/Delacorte.

Romy Hey Lynne, thanks for the friend request! I just read your blog post on Snooki's book I could not stop laughing, I have to get my hands on a copy with all those literary gems just waiting for me to read. Jimmy Fallon did this Snooki karaoke on his show which was hilarious, he got the contestants to sing quotes from the book, priceless, I highly recommend watching it.

Romy :)

Yes, I saw the Snooki karaoke-- brilliant! True, there are so many literary gems in that one. It was difficult to choose my favorites.
Thank you too, and glad you enjoyed the post!


Sandra Thanks so much for friending me! :)
