If aliens ever do land on Earth, Kelly will not be prepared, despite having read over a hundred stories of the apocalypse. Still, she will pack her precious books into a box and carry them with her as she strives to survive. It’s what bibliophiles do.

Kelly is the author of a number of novels, novellas and short stories, including the Chaos Station series, co-written with Jenn Burke. Some of what she writes is speculative in nature, but mostly it’s just about a guy losing his socks and/or burning dinner. Because life isn’t all conquering aliens and mountain peaks. Sometimes finding a happy ever after is all the adventure we need.

Hi Liz,

Thanks for the note! I'm so glad you enjoyed Best in Show. :) Yes, I do plan to write more books in this world. Even before I finished writing this one, I had ideas! I'd like to continue the story of the journal and introduce more of the town of Lingwood. I'd also like to continue Julian and Mac's relationship.

I have actually started outlining a second book and have ideas for at least a third. Hopefully I'll have news regarding the continuation of the series by spring 2017. In the meantime, I'm pretty good about keeping the Coming Soon page of my website up to date. I keep a list of current projects, there, along with my progress on each one.

Best,
Kelly(less)

We made it!

2017 was a very busy year for me and perhaps one of my most productive. I wrote four books and edited five. I also published four books, all of which I loved writing and really enjoyed sharing.

I also won an award! My first ever, if I don’t count third place in a short story contest. Which I sort of do?

“These were the best moments. The kisses that just happened—that could only happen with Zed, the only man he felt fully comfortable with. Kisses were intimate and personal. They were promises without words. And, really, who needed words? Felix’s tongue never got him into trouble when he was kissing.”
Kelly Jensen, Lonely Shore

“Except… when I looked at Daniel, met a gaze the color of the sky, clear and unclouded, I could hear an echo inside me. And echoes only happened in hollow places.”
Kelly Jensen, Wrong Direction

“I—” Fear paralyzed his tongue. His shoulders stiffened again. Conversely, his knees wobbled. It was too soon, too late. Not the right time...would he ever find the right time? Zed pulled him closer, so close they touched all the way down. Warm arms gathered him close. “Shh,” he whispered against Felix’s temple. “It’s okay. I know.”
Kelly Jensen, Lonely Shore

Many, many ugly cries, even when happy things happened. I finished Something Like Spring last night. I loved the ending! Just perfect. I'm still weeping over book 3, though. And all the other sad parts of the series. And the sweet parts. You know how it goes.

I have a request for a story as you to continue write these guys: Nathaniel. (I say this knowing such a story would include Marcello!)

Thanks for the note. :)

Awesome... on the tattoo. Not about the spam. My tattoos are all real creatures. A panther, a turtle and a sword and shield which isn't a creature at all. But it does kinda look like an eagle with wings furled. Sometimes. A phoenix would make an great tattoo!

I'm out in the garden doing the spring thing and every time I come in, another few books have been added. We'll see how it progresses!
