Please give a warm welcome to author Sinclair Kelly
Tell us a bit about yourself…
My name is Sinclair Kelly. I’m a paranormal & contemporary romance author who writes to give all of the feral characters in my head a voice. I’m fluent in sarcasm and dry humor. We currently call sunny Arizona home – we being me, my loving husband, three adorably exhausting kids, a cranky old chihuahua named Sam (aka SamBurger) and a feisty Australian shepherd puppy named Havoc. I love reading, writing, coffee, vodka, tattoos, wine, donuts, broody asshole book boyfriends, badass FMCs, sangria, and all of the friendships I’ve made since beginning my writing journey.
Have you always wanted to become an author?
I’ve dreamed of writing since I was in my early twenties. I took classes to fine tune my work – one by best selling Harlequin author Leigh Michaels – but life got in the way, like it tends to do. It’s taken me almost twenty years to realize my dream, but I’m here now and loving every second of sharing my characters with readers.
What was your inspiration for your current book/series?
I just finished up my menage novella series which literally started off with a writing prompt: An ogre, a troll, and a witch walk into a bar…and from there this quirky fairy tale was born.
What are you working on now?
Right now, I’m working on my solo project, Just My Luck, Book four in the Some Kind of Luck shared world series. Book one, The Trouble With Luck, was co-written with Elizabeth Knight, Ali D Jensen, and Letty Frame, and follows four best friends as they experience spring break and St Patrick’s Day in Chicago. It’s got intrigue, hot mafia / mob men, lots of steamy scenes and four friends that are inseparable. Books two, Tough Luck by Ali D Jensen, and three, Stroke of Luck, by Elizabeth Knight, are available now.
Do you have any quirks while working?
When I’m thinking or plotting out a scene in my head, I tend to play with my hair…a lot. My husband thinks it’s weird.
What are your hopes for the future?
Honestly, I’m just excited I get to share my worlds with readers. Would it be awesome to “hit it big”? Of course it would…but that’s not the goal. I just want to tell my stories and hopefully have people enjoy them 🙂
Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?
Don’t give up. Dreams can happen at any age, so get those ideas and words onto metaphorical paper (or literal paper if that’s your thing). It will happen eventually – whether it’s days/months/years down the line – and you’ll want to be ready 😉
Do you have anything to say to your followers?
From the bottom of my heart, thank you to each and every person that’s crossed my path in the last year. It’s been a wild ride and I couldn’t have done it without you.
