I was born and raised in north London, where I continue to live with my husband Joe, and where my novels 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. The publication gave me a huge boost and turned me into a keen short story writer. My shorts stories have now 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 office but, being a massive coffee lover, I’ll often be found in a local café editing over an Flat White or two. It can get quite busy and noisy in my local coffee shop, but I find that I can switch off from the surrounding noise once I’m involved in a plot, and I seem to get more work done when I’m away from home distractions.

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 (posting pics of my breakfast, lunch and dinner) @kellyflorentia and on Facebook @KellyFlorentiaAuthor
My fourth novel, a psychological thriller, will publish by Bloodhound Books in February 2021. I’m currently working on my fifth novel.
