Kelly S. Samuels writes across genres and is the author of contemporary short fiction.

With wry humor and insights, she brings raw, relatable characters to life beyond the page, exploring the decisions and collisions that forever alter their destinies. Her research-driven writing is fueled by a constant curiosity with the often-overlooked subcultures which surround us.

Her work has found homes in Sucker Literary Anthology, The New Short Fiction Series in LA, and Speaking of Stories in Santa Barbara, CA. She is currently querying a contemporary novel.

Kelly spent twenty years in Santa Barbara, CA, enjoying the sunshine while raising three kids. She is learning to love the seasons again in Boston, MA, where she now lives with her husband and dogs.
