Rosalyn Kelly

Rosalyn Kelly grew up in the magical New Forest in the south of England and has lived around the country as well as in the Middle East and travelled all over the world. She studied English Literature and Language at Oxford Brookes University before embarking on a PR and marketing career. After ten years of telling the stories of international brands and businesses she decided the time had come to tell her own and her debut novel MELOKAI was written in 2016 after quitting her job, going travelling for four months and then writing solidly for the following four. The inspiration for her grimdark epic fantasy trilogy came when she was trekking in the mountains of Nepal’s stunning Annapurna Sanctuary. When she’s not putting her heart and soul into book two of the In The Heart of The Mountains trilogy, she daydreams about where to travel to next, paints with acrylic, reads voraciously and writes book reviews on her blog.
