Kelly is very proud of the fact she has self-published seven of her own novels. Her creative writing is directly linked with her visual work. From these novels she has created drawings of each of the characters. These characters go on journeys of self-discovery together within her novels. Kelly describes them as coming of age stories. Each drawing of the characters has unique fashion sense that identifies with their personalities. Kelly continues to work on this series creating new characters and bringing them to life with her drawings.
