About the Author

A member of Golden Crown Literary Society, Baeli has worked both as a freelance editor, and as Managing Editor for a Connecticut women's press in the early 90's. Eight years of Higher Education garnered her a B.A. in Professional Writing & Editing and a renewed lust for learning. She continues her interests and experience in editing, typography and book cover design, and is pursuing her Masters Degree. Not shackled to one genre, nor a one-book wonder, she has authored 13 books, (with some 11 more in the works), and only recently began to query agents and publishers. She maintains 3 Forums, and 5 blogs, and publishes highly rated articles on various online sites.
Baeli is also a vocalist, mixed media artist, webmaster, therapeutic touchist, as well as a voluminous songwriter with over 200 songwriting credits. She creates Independent CD's in her home project studio, and enjoys pottery, sculpture, and painting. She confesses to being "Used by the Muse(tm)."
Reader and Professional reviews, as well as Feedback, Praises, and First-Born Children, are cheerfully accepted via her website, http://jaebaeli.com. Promotional copies are available.

More About the Author

Kelli Jae Baeli began writing as a child, exploring poetry and journaling, and eventually moving on to short stories. After a romantic fling in the military with another female soldier, she decided to write a book based on the experience. The story that evolved took on a life of its own, but it became her first novel, As You Were. This was followed quickly by Armchair Detective, a book she said she wrote because she couldn't find other lesbian fiction she liked at the time, and so wanted to write something she would want to read. She's been doing that ever since.

Believing in mastering every aspect of the business, she is also an editor, webmaster and blogger, all after eight years of University, to include pursuing a B.A. in Professional Writing & Editing. Formerly a managing editor for two small presses, and a freelance editor since 1995, Baeli has also done book cover design, typography, and formatting since 1998.

Creativity comes as easily as breathing to Baeli. Living a life around words, books, art, and music not only fulfills her, but defines her. An independent publisher, she has authored and produced 37 books, both non-fiction and fiction, in a variety of genres. Constantly mining the world around her for literary tidbits, Baeli is always to be found with iPhone in hand, recording or thumbing in notes, a self-confessed story magpie who sees everywhere the fodder for her work. She is a talented singer-songwriter with over 200 songs to her credit, and loves pottery and clay sculpture, as well. A canny mix of business woman and artist, Kelli Jae Baeli is delighted to spend each and every day relentlessly feeding her muse.

Formerly a managing editor for two small presses, and a freelance editor since 1995, she blogs on a regular basis, founded Kindred Ink Writers Initiative, Kind Red Ink Editing, and has currently co-founded Lesbian Literati Press and Sapphica Books.net with her partner, fellow author Kate Genet (AKA Kate Hansen). Baeli migrated from Colorado to New Zealand, where they currently make their home.
