“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 60 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 dialogue, and happy endings. All are hallmarks of my work.
As an Indie Publisher and author, I enjoy a position in the top 5% of lesbian writers, authoring 31 Amazon bestsellers.
I do write nonfiction, but not as often these days. I accidentally wrote one novelette in the YA genre, but primarily, I write in the genres of LesFic, Adventure, Romance/Romantic Suspense, FemFic, Science Fiction, Speculative Fiction, Women’s Adventure, Erotica, Mystery, Suspense, Humor, and most recently, Dystopian/Post-Apocalyptic.
I’m a veteran, proud Democrat and unabashed feminist. When I can find the time, I’m an artist and singer-songwriter, Hidden Object gamer, TV binge-watcher, nature-lover, and avid reader.
My wife, Melissa, is a budding author in her own right, and we live with 2 dogs (Noodle and Whatnot), 3 cats (Chicklit, Zenni, & Poppet), four fish (Blur, Chubs, Jane Doe, and Rachel Maddow), and are currently planning a relocation to the Northwoods of Wisconsin to build our homestead.
