  5. SJ Moquin says:

    We could be twins with the scary movies/watching Twilight facts! =)

  6. Todd Bliss says:

    I can’t watch any horror movies either and I also live audiobooks and I am going to have to check out those books and I too am married to the love of my life

  7. Kevina Oyatedor says:

    Love this, Kelly! I like horror films but I only watch them in the day time.

  8. Shannon says:

    I can’t watch horror movies either. I used to love them but after having kids, the regular world is scary enough.
    Do you ever dream about going back to a tropical island?

  9. Sarah says:

    I can relate real hard to #19!

  10. Vanessa says:

    Congrats on the new book. Sounds cute and love the cover! Great read in time for Spring Break.

  11. Kim says:

    I enjoyed getting to know more about you. I wish I was ambidextrous. I eat left-handed and tie my shoes left-handed. I’m sure I was probably supposed to be left-handed but had people force me to be right-handed.

  12. Kathy levernier says:

    Absolutely Fabulous Cover 🙂
    Spectacularly fun way to get to know you.
    I have just found out about your book
    It looks and sounds fun to read..
    Blessings for much success.

  13. flchen1 says:

    Great to meet you, Kelly Anne! Congrats on your lovely marriage and beautiful little one! Such a great age! And right there with you on the horror–while I’m always super curious, I’ve come to realize that horror is absolutely the wrong genre for me to watch, any time. Unless I’ve got a crazy desire to be sleeping with ALL the lights on, ALL the time. I’m sure DH would not be pleased 😉

  14. Annette Kordgien says:

    Thank you so much. Enjoyed learning about you.

  15. Tammy V says:

    I really enjoyed the book. It would be a great read for the beach or pool this summer. *weird fact for me – I love cryptic crosswords.

  16. Amy Jo says:

    I love soft blankets and coffee mugs too, as long as they are filled ((giggle)) Coronation Street, hmmm..sounds like I have to check that out!

  17. Sarah says:

    Thanks for the chance. I just read an arc of this and it was adorable!

  18. Janet L Johnson says:

    I love furry babies-would love to read a new author/story

  19. Jamaica Curato says:

    I wonder what it would be like to live in a palace!

  20. Kathy levernier says:

Come Fly With Me

I don’t know about you, but one of the things I’ve missed most during the pandemic is traveling. Heck, even just getting into a car and going on a day trip. I’m lucky to live in a beautiful seaside community on Long Island Sound, so last summer wasn’t so bad with lots of swimming and… Read More
