Kelly Romo grew up in California but has lived in Oregon for over twenty-five years. She is a retired educator and mother of three. Kelly has a Master of Fine Arts in Writing and a Master of Arts in Teaching, both from Pacific University.

Kelly's passion isn't confined to the written word alone; she craves adventure. Whether she's navigating the wild rapids on a whitewater raft, fishing, immersing herself in the untamed beauty of nature, or trekking through one of the national parks, Kelly finds solace and excitement in every step. Her love of the outdoors started early. She grew up in California with thrill-seeking cousins and siblings who encouraged her to jump off cliffs into the Colorado River, explore caves on the beaches of Mexico, ride dirt bikes, water ski, and snow ski.


When the day's adventures wind down, Kelly delves into the intricate art of fly tying and spending time with her family. Both pursuits balance her adventurous spirit.
