Kelley J. P. Lindberg writes award-winning young adult fiction, adult fiction, and creative nonfiction. Her short stories and essays have been published in literary journals and in the Tellables app for the Amazon Alexa platform. As a freelance writer, Kelley has written dozens of how-to books, as well as countless essays and articles for magazines, publishers (such as Fodor’s Travel Guides), and books (like Chicken Soup for the Wine Lover’s Soul). She’s in demand as a contract medical and business writer, and she has ghost-written how-to crafting books and managed special issue magazines. She loves to share what she’s learned about writing through her blog and through speaking opportunities. Her lively presentations and fast-paced hands-on workshops help writers elevate their craft. She is represented by Lynnette Novak at The Seymour Agency.
To feed her creative spirit, Kelley reads, hikes, sails, and travels as often and as far as she can. Over the years she’s raced hermit crabs in the British Virgin Islands, slept in an Irish nunnery, listened for ancient whispers in Pompeii, snorkeled with a shark in Belize and stingrays in Bora-Bora, tried not to look like a sardine while swimming with a thousand dolphins off the coast of South Africa, and commiserated over the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune with Shakespeare’s ghost in Stratford-Upon-Avon.
