As a child, Kelly Marshall read voraciously. She always thought she would communicate in the world as a writer and someday pen a great novel. But life took a left turn and instead, Kelly ended up at broadcasting school. After graduating, she began spinning records, interviewing people, doing love song dedications and having a ball at radio stations in Virginia, Colorado, Oregon, South Dakota and Washington. After thirty years, she walked away from the microphone and decided to do what she had always wanted to do . . . write. Kelly lives in the Pacific Northwest with her grandson, Dawson.
