“Kelli Jae Baeli proves herself not just a fine storyteller,
but one who’s highly skilled at her craft, both artist and artisan.”
~from Have Books Will Review
Even after 61 books, I always try to write the sort of book I would want to read. My favorite thing to do is take a common trope and turn it on its ear. Where you expect a zig, I give you a zag.
In my pages, you will find strong female characters, ethical dilemmas, realistic romantic storylines often filled with adventure and intense pacing, tempered by witty dialog, and happy endings. All are hallmarks of my work.
As a Bestselling Genre-Hopping Indie Author, I’ve enjoyed a sales position in the top 5% of lesbian writers, but I write crossover and mainstream fiction as well. All 34 of my FemFic novels have been bestsellers in the genres of domestic suspense, domestic thriller, women’s adventure, romantic suspense, apocalyptic, speculative, and science fiction.
I do write nonfiction, but not as often these days.
I’m a veteran, Democrat and unabashed feminist. When I can find the time, I’m a Hidden Object gamer, TV binge-watcher, nature-lover, and avid reader.
I’m also a mixed-media artist (mostly clay and abstract painting) and former performing singer-songwriter with over 200 songs. My wife, Melissa Walker-Baeli, is a budding author in her own right, and we live with two dogs, (Noodle and Whatnot) 2 cats, (Poppet and Chicklet) on ten acres in the gorgeous Northwoods of Michigan.
