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.

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.

On top of finishing my third novel, working a full time job, and taking care of two 10-month-olds, I have also recently been training for the Austin half-marathon, which I ran last weekend. By ran, sadly, I mean I injured a muscle in my back in the lamest way possible a couple days before the race, got to run about 5 minutes before my body compelled me to wuss out, and got to walk my gimpy ass...

I'm kind of a masochist when it comes to classic literature but this was a tough one to get through even though it's very short. There was so much inane conversation since most of this novella takes place at a dinner party. The real depth doesn't com ...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.
