About Me

About meeee.... aboooot me. Who am I? I'm Q. Kelly, and this is what my Amazon author page says:

Fact One: I like corny jokes. If you have any good ones, send them my way!

Fact Two: My favorite color is purple, but my writing is gray. Life is not black and white. I often write about issues and characters where there is no "right" answer.

Fact Three: I'm weird. I like being weird.

Yeah, that's me in a nutshell. If I was small enough to fit in a nutshell, anyway.

My latest work is I, Alexandrina. You can find it here on Amazon.

I'm a writer. I have a bunch of books out and lots more to come (I hope). Most recently, "Wicked Things," an anthology in which I have a story, won a Goldie award. Also, "Third" was named a Lambda Literary Award finalist and was named a Goldie finalist. In late 2012, "Waiting" and "Third" won Rainbow Awards. Also, "The Old Woman and Other Lesbian Stories" won a 2011 Lesbian Fiction Readers Choice Award. "Strange Bedfellows" also won two Rainbow Awards. "The Odd Couple" was a finalist for the GCLS debut author award. See this page for a list of all my books. I'm also an indie writer and loving it. This blog basically chronicles my indie experience and keeps y'all up to date on my projects. I throw in random stuff once in a while.

Knock knock.
Who's there?
Orange.
Orange you glad I'm here?
Yep, I am. Thanks for visiting my website :-)


** In 2013, I decided not to enter awards programs anymore--for a variety of reasons.
