Kelli Donley was born and raised in Arizona. She has been an avid reader and writer since childhood, which led to studying journalism in college. After volunteering in west Africa with the Peace Corps, she returned to school to study public health.
She is the author of four novels, Under the Same Moon, Basket Baby, Counting Coup, and Desert Divide. Inspiration was found working in the developing world in international health.
Kelli lives with her husband Jason in Mesa, Arizona, and works in public health.
COMMUNITY & CULTURE
Community and culture are essential to my stories. Your comments provide insight into how the next book can be even better. Leave a comment and I will respond. I’m always interested in questions about writing, too.
