"We are masters of the
unsaid words, but slaves of those we let slip out."
~ Winston Churchill
Ethan’s first book was published in September 2006 with
Samhain Publishing. She has since had a paranormal romance
contracted to Freya’s Bower. She enjoys writing paranormal,
fast-paced romantic stories.
She has decided to try her hand in a different genre and is
currently writing an urban fantasy young adult novel and
loving every minute of it!
No matter the genre, Kelly loves kick-ass, sarcastic
heroines who like to save the day and the hero.
is a mother of one crazy, smart, energetic little boy who
delights in driving her slightly insane. Writing is her
outlet for madness and she uses it well. She started
sneaking Mills and Boon books into her room at the ripe old
age of 14 and has never looked back.
She didn’t consider writing until she was pregnant with her
son (she blames it on hormones!) when she wrote her first
book. Since then she’s reviewed books for CataRomance.com
and has been living, breathing and sleeping writing. Kelly
is married to her own hero in the army and they move
regularly around Australia.
Her influences are the heavies of the biz: Sherrilyn Kenyon,
Laurel K Hamilton, Kim Harrison, JD Robb, Christine Feehan
and Katie McCallister. She has also fallen in love with
David Weber and Mercedes Lackey. The most important of them
all would be Alexis Fleming, her wonderful mother, who has
always encouraged, supported and put up with her frequent
‘what next’ phone calls.

What is the most valuable lesson you have learned as an
Patience, determination and adaptability. If the book isn’t
flowing you need to be able to persevere instead of throwing
the towel in. Determination to keep writing whatever the
hurdles. Be adaptable, take those said hurdles and turn them
into motivation. Easier said than done.

Can’t succeed with a blank page. Write every day if you can,
even 100 words, but just write. And enjoy what you do, if
you don’t enjoy it why do it?
