Kelly Baugher grew up in a small, rural town in Alabama. Since childhood, she has been enthralled by masterful storytellers. After attending the University of Mississippi on a Theatre scholarship, she eventually got around to graduating from the University of North Alabama with a B.S. in Theatre. After countless performances in non-profit theatre and independent films, she realized that her bills weren’t being paid. She married the “guy next door” and soon became a mother to the most beautiful creature on the planet, Julia. She enjoys staying at home and drinking up every second spent with her family. To satisfy her creative urges…she writes. Kelly would like to thank two people who have inspired her beyond belief--Bill Provin and Bubba Godsey. She would also like to thank Mr. Tom Clancy for opening that e-mail from "a struggling writer who believes in fate."
