She studied English Literature and Language at Oxford Brookes University before embarking on a PR and marketing career.

After ten years telling the stories of international brands and businesses, she decided the time had come to tell her own and her debut novel MELOKAI was published in 2017. Her second novel VIOLYA was published in 2019.

The inspiration for her epic fantasy trilogy came when she was trekking in the mountains of Nepal's stunning Annapurna Sanctuary.

“Is it possible to bring all wolves into one pack? Who lead? We would kill each other before we even mounted an attack, mused Darrio.

His three pups were asleep next to him, a tangled mass of limbs. He moulded himself around them, nestling his head next to Sarrya. Drowsily she sniffed at his face before settling down to sleep again.

Fear our peaceful lives are about to change, sweet daughter.”
Rosalyn Kelly, Melokai

“V rebuffed the magic that tickled beneath her skin, itching to get out. Ignored its incessant chattering, its constant thrashing against her every decision, her every movement.”
Rosalyn Kelly, Melokai

“Most Melokais ruled for a decade, Ramya had ruled now for two years longer than most. Your time is up! She was certain this was the cats’ message. They had been frantic all morning. Their mewing, trilling, yowling sounded different. Urgent, worried.

They had scuttled about under her feet as she limbered through her daylight dances, slapped paws at the goat’s milk in her washtub rather than lapping at it, and as she had dressed, they clawed at her fur cloak, looking up at her with knowing marble eyes. When she had left her chambers to head to the busy dining hall, a swarm of squalling, hissing fur had trailed behind.”
