Kelly was born and raised in Northern Virginia, and first realized her joy of writing when she was in middle school, where she won a candy bar for writing the best short story in her class.
She and her husband, John, first met when he was stationed at nearby Fort Belvoir, in the Army. They married, traveled, bought a house, then a dog, and were then blessed with their greatest joys...becoming parents of their two boys, Johnny and Jonah.
