KATE KENNELLY started writing creatively when she was ten years old. She let a bad grade on a creative writing project in seventh grade get her down and stopped writing altogether. Many years later, now suffering from chronic pain, someone asked her “When are you not in pain?” The answer was “When I do creative things.” Kate challenged herself to sit down and write something – anything – for the therapeutic value. Thirteen chapters later, not only was she writing, but she was reading books on writing, watching YouTube videos, learning all she could to try and craft a good story.

In her free time, Kate loves to Irish dance, play fiddle, do yoga, meditate and play World of Warcraft with her book club friends.

I did this and it worked!(less)
Kate Kennelly I've created a world that I enjoy being a part of. I've met people whom I otherwise would not have met and I've discovered skills I didn't know I had.

"Love this!

I can’t express how much I loved this story. It was sad and sweet with just enough tension. And the epilogue made me cry a little, in a really good way. Kotsi is sexy as hell, I want to *be* Fab, and the city was a charming character in its" Read more of this review »

“A fine bunch of humanity,” Natalie nodded. “I’d give anything to treat an ear infection right now.” “An infected cut,” Jules sighed wistfully. “Food poisoning,” Natalie said dreamily and lay next to him, intensely aware of the close distance between them.”
Kate Kennelly, Emerald's Fracture

“Natalie skimmed the left side of the book, then the right. Her eyes caught sight of a doodle she’d drawn in the margins; a heart with ND + JR written inside. Hell in a kettle, Goddess’s bloomers, and damn it all to hell. She casually covered the initials with her hand, shifted in her seat, and returned her eyes to the content of the page as if her life depended on it.”
Kate Kennelly, Emerald's Fracture

“If only trusting herself was as easy as just saying the words. Unfortunately, the dragon of self-doubt perched on her shoulders, it's claws firmly dug in.”

“Spoken like someone who has never had chronic pain. My mom gets weekly massages. Chiropractic adjustments. Acupuncture. And has a personal trainer. I love her, but she really has no clue.”
Jewel E. Ann, A Place Without You

“HeLaHoop,”
Alyssa Cole, A Princess in Theory

“Suddenly an adolescent voice boomed through the train car. “Showtime! Showtime, ladies and gentlemen!”
