Most days, Kelly can be found relief teaching in a southern suburb’s primary school classroom. However, sharing great books and her love of language has been her passion for more than 20 years. At home with her husband, Steve, reading has always been an important part of the daily routine with their two sons, Coby, 7, and Owen, 4. Having her debut picture book, Fancy Pants, selected for inclusion in the 2017 LBBC Book Pack has made her writing dream turn into a reality. As an emerging writer and a passionate advocate for children’s literacy, she feels truly privileged to have this opportunity.
