Kellyn Roth is a Christian historical women's fiction and romance author. Sound boring? Well, she includes lots of adorable children and mischievous animals—as well as a generous dose of BBC-style drama.

Kell lives on a ranch in North-Eastern Oregon with her family, crazy border collies, conceited fluffy cat, and assorted cows and chickens.

Other than authoring, she blogs, teaches young writers to write, does secretary things, spends way too much time on swingsets for an adult, and pretends she understands Instagram aesthetic.

Killing characters!

Not really. ;) Though I do like putting characters through ridiculously dramatic situations, I don't like killing them. I think just being able to write someone's life down (other than my own) and make it exciting (unlike my own) is a big deal to me! I like having things my way, and everything ALWAYS goes my way in my books. ;)(less)

Reflections on a Lack of Accomplishment


(Bear through my depressed mumblings and you’ll be treated with some delightful reveries on Jane Austen. I promise.)


There’s so much I could choose to be depressed about this year.


No, not the tyrannical impositions our government has placed on its people. Not the riots. Not the lies of various political parties and not the insistence of many reasonable people in believing the lies.

This was an excellent book!

But I enjoyed the book so much overall that I couldn't give

Ohh! :p Yeah, it definitely should be snowing here too (although it usually doesn't snow in November here)! ;)
