Kelly Mitchell Author Bio (in the author’s own words)
My background is a battlefield of education and experience carnage. My curiosity latches onto a topic that piques my interest and I immerse myself in the research of that topic and once the smoke clears, there is often a certificate or a degree in my hand. The accidental casualty of a forever learner. If you do what you love, it’s not a job, it’s a dream-–where I am killing it.
Writing is the gravity that keeps my turbulent world together. The madness in my head is loud and writing is the way I find peace. My dark humor is prevalent in my work and I enjoy making people laugh while we accidentally learn an interesting, sometimes downright baffling trivia tidbit that you can whip out of your pocket and spark conversations.
