I was born and raised in north London, where I continue to live with my husband Joe, and where my novels Mine, Her Secret, No Way Back and The Magic Touch are set.

My love affair with writing fiction began when I sold my first story to Best magazine. My shorts stories have been published in women’s magazines worldwide and have been featured in several charity anthologies. My short story collection To Tell a Tale or Two is available to download from Amazon.

I usually write at my desktop in my home office. Unlike some writers, I haven’t got a strict writing regime. That said, I’m more creative in the mornings and tend to concentrate on editing in the afternoons. I’m more of a planner than a panster and can’t get excited about a story until I’ve worked out the ending. However, once I get going the characters often take over and lead me along a different route!

In between writing, I edit, beta read and do novel appraisals for authors and publishers. Please feel free to contact me for more details about these services here.

When I’m not busy working, I enjoy reading, listening to music, running, gyming, drinking coffee, watching TV dramas, and spending way too much time on social media. You can find me on Twitter (moaning about the weather) and on Insta (usually posting photos of my food) @kellyflorentia, on Facebook @KellyFlorentiaAuthor, and I’ve recently been let loose on TikTok @kellyflorentia, where I mostly post vids about books!
I’m currently working on my fifth novel.
