Writing novels about extraordinary women
and the incredible men who capture their hearts.
Welcome to my website.
I'm Marilyn Kelly,author of four sizzling historical romances set in the fascinating 1830'sEngland. I've just signed with Ellora's Cave and I'm thrilled to be part of this wonderful family of writers! Check out my writings' page for samples of what I've written so far.
Also, I've just completed my first contemporary novel called All The Boys I Ever Kissed, and I've received great feedback from other writers, readers, agents, and editors. I have ten requests to fulfill and hope to find a home for this project soon. If you like the Bachelorette, you'll love this book!
I'm also the creator of the Eleven Senses - Who Knew? booklet and workshop, see below for details. I gave my related workshop recently, called What Every Scene Needs, and got rave reviews.

My favorite statue in Athens. Aphrodite is swatting her unwanted suitor with her sandal,
while Cupid wrestles his horn.
Very dynamic art.
Another dynamic Cupid and Venus statue, this one from the amazing Wallace Collection in London.
