Even after 58 books, Kelli Jae Baeli always tries to write the sort of book she would want to read.

She says her favorite thing to do is take a common trope and turn it on its ear. Where you expect a zig, she gives you a zag. In her pages, you will find strong female characters, ethical dilemmas, realistic romantic storylines often filled with adventure and intense pacing, tempered by witty dialogue, and happy endings. All are hallmarks of her work.

As an Indie Publisher and author, Baeli enjoys a sales position in the top 5% of lesbian writers, authoring 30 bestsellers in the genres of adventure, romance, chick-lit, science fiction, speculative fiction, mystery, suspense, and humor. Baeli is also an artist and singer-songwriter. She lives w

“You're only responsible for being honest, not for someone else's reaction to your honesty.”
Kelli Jae Baeli, ISO

“Am I too much for the world, or is the world too much for me?”
Kelli Jae Baeli, Too Much World

“Real connection (and if it's LOVE, then real love)--goes beyond those not-so-perfect and superficial and idiosyncratic things that simply make us individuals. The trust and longevity of a relationship between two individuals is established through time and learning each other, and discovering a harmony at the core of their connection. And it becomes powerful because of where it resides--at the center of who we are--the very essence of our being.”
Kelli Jae Baeli

“It's one thing to say you think someone "hung the moon" but that generally means you are blind and deluded, and then the relationship fails because they say you changed, when really, they never saw you at all...The real test is if someone sees all your flaws or blemishes or individual differences, and they still think you hung the moon.”
Kelli Jae Baeli

“Some people have goodness and merit buried deep inside and we glimpse it and see its value but ultimately it's covered by so much dirt that it's a 24/7 exercise in archaeology.”
Kelli Jae Baeli

“When I am alone, my table manners are rather piggish, but i suppose that's because I don't eat at a table, I eat at my desk. Which could be considered a table, except we tend to define things by their function, and this particular surface is a desk, so perhaps piggish is unfair.”
