Anita Kelly

Hi friends! I’m Anita (she/they)!

Originally from a small town in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania, I now live in the Pacific Northwest with my family, where I spend time in the woods when I can and drink too much tea. Oh, and I also write queer romance.

I’m represented by Kim Lionetti of BookEnds Literary, and my full-length debut, Love & Other Disasters, is an nb/f adult contemporary romance that will be published by Forever on January 18, 2022. It has an alarmingly pretty cover and a lot of food and feelings inside of it. Click here for more info, including info about the pre-order campaign!

I also have a little series of novellas based around a queer karaoke bar. Click on the link for Moonlighters above to learn more.

& for all the Anita Kelly news you could ever possibly want (bless your heart), sign up here for my newsletter, where I talk about my own books, books that I love, and sometimes indulge in nostalgia about ’90s jams.

Success! You're on the list.
