Kelli McCracken is an author of rock star-themed contemporary and paranormal romance. She loves penning a good, sexy story that stirs emotions and tantalizes the senses. Most days you'll find Kelli knee-deep in chocolate bars, coffee, and kooky characters.

When she’s not writing, chatting with readers, or plotting her next story, Kelli loves to read, listen to music, and most of all, spend time with her family. She resides in Northeast Kentucky, is the mother of four, and is happily married to her husband, James.

"Time is the one thing in life that we never get back. Live life to the fullest with no regrets. Seconds chances are rare."

I just finished the first book in a new series and will be finishing the second book in the Mystique Antiques series before I dig in to Soulmate #5. Thank you for your question!(less)

Hi Kitty! Thanks for the friend request and thank you for reading my books. I can't wait to finish book 3 and share it with readers like you. I hope it will be the best one yet.

Chat with you, soon.

Hugs and love,
~Kelli

Kitty Thanks for the add. I get your updates sent to my email and know you've gotta be one busy lady in the summer. While I am on pins and needles waiting for book 3 in the soulmate series I like that you don't rush yourself to finish the book. I'd rather wait and get an awesome story than have a story rushed to be finished and not be the best that it can be. Kudos to you.

Hi Elizabeth! Thanks for reading the series! At this time, I don't have an exact date, yet. I just released a novella this month and I have another book I'm working on before I start on book 3. My goal is to release later this year. I'm looking forward to starting, though. Thanks again for reading!
