About this author

Kelly I. Hitchcock is an up-and-coming writer in the Austin, Texas area. She is author of various poems about the randomness of life, several short stories, random creative nonfiction works, and the coming-of-age novel The Redheaded Stepchild. She is world-renowned among a readership of five people and growing.

Raised by a single father in the small town of Buffalo, Missouri, Kelly has fond memories of cash-strapped life in the Ozarks that strongly influence her writing and way of life.

When she's not writing manuals for money or writing poetry and fiction for unmoney, or training for the Jailbreak half marathon, Kelly enjoys sewing, playing dodgeball, and politics. She is an avid volunteer and fundraiser for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.


Lately I’ve seen a lot of authors sharing their own lists of personal tips and tricks for winning at life – or life hacks. This got me thinking about the things I do to keep my life on track with my goals, both personal and professional. Maybe some of these can work for you, too, whether you’re an author or not.

I checked this one out on audiobook from my library because the title made me laugh. I am in the process of writing a book that is primarily set in a gym, so I thought maybe even though romance isn't my genre of choice, I could draw some inspiration...more

It only took 4 months, but I finished it! There is crime, and punishment, but the punishment part doesn't come until the end, unless you count the inner turmoil type punishment.

All seriousness, it's a classic so they're always brilliant and always de...more

I'm not what you'd call a Neil Gaiman fangirl, but I have friends who are and I'd have to be living under a rock to have never heard of him. Based on my friends' enthusiasm, when I saw this book available in my library's digital downloads list, I dec...more

Eh. It was okay. It had some LOL-worthy moments, but I didn't really connect with it.

Although this one was a little sentimental for my taste, it was a great narrative of how two outcasts become friends, then more than friends. You can't help but cry for Eleanor, whose family situation is the worst of the worst, and laugh at Park, who...more

Christina Carson Fine review of Birds of Paradise. I am always looking to know people who enjoy ideas in what they read and seek a degree of substance. So it is grand meeting you. I will mark this book down as "to-read" and follow your reviews for books I am sure I'll relate to. Thank you.
