Author Spotlight: Liz Durano and Kelli Jean

Liz Durano

Loving Ashe (The Celebrity Series Book 1) by Liz Durano

Any (not-so-secret) pen names: haha it’s a secret!

Favorite genre to write: Women’s Fiction and Romance with hints of mystery

Favorite genre to read: Mystery/Suspense

My readers would be surprised to know that I draw. It makes my mom happy to know that if this writing “gig” doesn’t work out, I can set up a stand at the park and draw your portrait for a fee. My favorite medium is graphite and colored pencils as well as digital art using a tablet although these days, I just draw straight on my iPad or iPhone. Whenever I’m stumped on my books’ arc, conflict or plot, I’m usually drawing away and posting them on Instagram. If you don’t see my drawings, that means I’m busy writing!

You should pick up “Loving Ashe” because it’s a sweet chick lit romance between a sweet barista named Riley Eames and the swoony British actor she gets trapped with in a Midtown Manhattan elevator. It’s about opening your heart again to love even when your personal world seems to be falling apart.

Describe “Loving Ashe” in one word: swoon

The best part about being an author is bringing stories that have long resided in my heart and head to life and hearing how they touch people.

Kelli Jean

Over the Hills and Far Away by Kelli Jean

Any (not-so-secret) pen names: Kelli Jean is all I’ve got

Favorite genre to write: Contemporary Romance

Favorite genre to read: ANYTHING so long as it’s well written – but mostly romance. I’m a sucker for love.

My readers would be surprised to know that I was born and raised in Miami, but now happily live on a sheep farm in the Arctic.

You should pick up “Over the Hills and Far Away” because it’s an epic journey of soul mates and music!

Describe “Loving Ashe” in one word: SUBLIME

The best part about being an author is living vicariously through my characters. I’m can be anywhere in the universe without stepping foot outside my door.
