Holly Kelly is a mom who writes books in her spare time: translation—she hides in the bathroom with her laptop and locks the door while her kids destroy the house and smear peanut butter on the walls. She was born in Utah but lived in Kansas until she was 13, in Texas until she was 18, and attended college in Hawaii—studying marine biology. She’s now back in Utah--"happy valley". She’s married to a wonderful husband, James, and they are currently raising 6 rambunctious children. Her interests are reading, writing (of course), creating Halloween props, martial arts, visual arts, and spending time with family. She signed with Clean Teen Publishing in 2013. Her first published book Rising, quickly hit the best-seller lists and has maintained its status on those lists since its release in September 2013. The sequel in The Rising Series titled, Descending, was released in late March 2014. It also hit best-seller status—reaching all the way to #1 in Mythology on Amazon. And then the third installment, Avenging, was released on April 21, 2015 and is also a top best seller!
