About the Author

Baeli was born to spin a yarn. The daughter of a professional musician, she arrived in Wichita and began her journey with a song in her heart and a plethora of passion erupting from her pen. This love of lyrics, prose and poetry was just the simple seed of what would grow into a wordsmith's obsession with the creation of multifarious characters and storylines that fork with dual plot lines into romance and intrigue. Oklahoma, Arkansas and Colorado are just a few locales that surface in Baeli's novels as these places are ones she drank in from her time in University, to retreating for self exploration. Each place is rich in bucolic terrain and provided grand palettes for her mysteries and suspenseful romances. Townies and their coveted colloquialisms provided divine fodder for tales too real to be true. There is nothing like experience to craft a character. Baeli has plenty to spare-from a stint in the military to late nights spent delivering newspapers or waiting tables, to a technical writer for a corporate jet company. Each job was a necessity, but one that Baeli turned into a study in the human condition or sometimes inhumane conditions. Some of Baeli's fondest endeavors were fronting an all female band for seven years in Little Rock and her enjoyable time as a managing editor for a women's press. In recent years, Baeli has pursued technology with a perverse passion. Website building, blogging and creating and maintaining online forums have shared the docket with her ever-present story crafting. Baeli has relied on her technical writing roots and expanded her repertoire, enabling her to edit for herself and other writers, both accomplished and aspiring. With over 200 song writing credits and 22 books to her credit, Kelli Jae Baeli shows no signs of wear. She has returned to her beloved Colorado where she may be found amongst the Denverites, people-watching over coffee and conversation... awaiting the next story to inspire and entrance. ~Justice Harlow

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 with her partner, fellow author Kate Genet (AKA Kate Hansen). Baeli migrated from Colorado to New Zealand, where they currently make their home.

Format: Paperback
If you are a woman - lesbian, straight, or in-between - you owe it to yourself to read this beautiful love story about women. Or, even if you're man seeking to understand the nature of women, this book is a great place to start.
Though the story focuses on two particular women, it also speaks to the universal nature of women to want to give and receive love, to be cherished for who we are by another human being, and to share a nurturing life-long commitment with another human being. This story is about the quest of two wonderfully resilient women to find a relationship that includes all of these things. It's just a beautifully told love story about the unique and intimate experience of being a woman. The characters reminded me of my own friends, and even of myself. The events and situations, good and bad, happy and sad, were equally indentifiable. As I read this book, I felt as if I were sitting in a cafe with a female friend having a conversation about our lives while sipping on our mocha lattes. In the end, as I closed the book, I was sad to leave this fictional world which I understood so completely and in which I was so comfortable. But more than that, I felt satisfied and proud to be the "plethora" that is Woman.

This book is so good it deserves more than the usual computer abbreviations. Kelli Jae Baeli's character development is fantastic; every character seems so real you want to know them in real life. Kelli is a master at humor and quirkiness, and gives each character and scene a generous helping of both. I absolutely adored Plethora. If you're not a fan of Kelli Jae Baeli yet, you will be after reading Plethora.
