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. Creativity comes as easily as breathing to Baeli. A talented singer-songwriter with over 200 songs to her credit, she also loves mixed-media art, painting, pottery, and clay sculpture, as well. Living a life around words, books, art, and music not only fulfills her, but defines her.
Formerly a managing editor for two small presses, she founded Kindred Ink Writers Initiative, and Kind Red Ink Editing, and currently publishes under the imprints Indie Literati Press, and Lesbian Literati Press. Believing in mastering every aspect of the business, Baeli does her own book cover design, typography, and formatting, maintains an author newsletter and video journal series, and is also an editor, webmaster and blogger, all after eight years of University, to include pursuing a B.A. in Professional Writing & Editing.
A canny mix of businesswoman and artist, Kelli Jae Baeli is delighted to spend each day relentlessly polishing her skills and feeding her muse.
After three unfortunate years in New Zealand, she now makes her American home on Holiday Island, near the quaint village of Eureka Springs with her partner, Melissa Walker.

This novel surpassed that!
Others I've read were okay in content, horrible in spelling and grammar, and difficult to read. Not so, this novel. I downloaded another book by Baeli simply because this one caught and held my attention. I stayed up way past bedtime reading this, absorbing it in one night because I could NOT put it down. It had romance, crazy twists, and many other positive characteristics. However, the best part of this book was Baeli's sensitivity to the thoughts, feelings, and realities of life as a woman who loves a woman. She captured the essence of female romance without so much as a glitch. I read this book snuggled in next to my wife and fell asleep with a sappy, mushy, and very glowing appreciation for the beauty who lay next to me. Like all great romance novels, this book wrapped me up in the moment.
Thank you, Ms. Baeli. I'll be purchasing your other novels as soon as I can!
Tru finds herself fighting to find the life she once had with Brit. This in itself is an uphill struggle, but add to it disruptive outside influences and it is going to be almost an impossibility. Some people just do not want to see Tru and Brit back together.
The question that has to be asked is.... Will Tru and Brit ever find their way back to the love so callously torn from them?
A well written and highly enjoyable romance, mystery and intrigue, with a light touch of humor. Although this story is basically a romance, there is so much more packed into it. So many twists and turns and ups and downs, it's a real rollercoaster ride of highs and lows. I simply couldn't put this book down and couldn't turn the pages fast enough. I had to force myself to slow down. I wouldn't advise starting this late at night, unless you don't need to sleep.
The two main characters, Tru and Brit are poles apart throughout most of the book. I don't want to put in any spoilers, but the emotional ride they are on, is hard going for them. The only thing I will say is, I wasn't disappointed with the outcome of the story.
All the characters in the book were well formed and they each played their parts in progressing the story forward.Read more ›
