kels-profile-picabout the author:

Kelsey B. Toney has been creative for as long as she can remember. Her formative years were a swirl of bad poetry, journals full of songs, and absolutely TONS of jazz hands. DAMSEL DISTRESSED, (published under the name Kelsey Macke) gold medal winner of the 2014 Moonbeam Award for YA, was released with its own soundtrack, Imogen Unlocked, a full album of original songs inspired by the book. Kelsey, a Dallas native, is a public speaker who regularly gives talks about writing craft, publishing, and mental health awareness and destigmatization.  In addition to writing and teaching, Kelsey watches Gilmore Girls on a near-endless cycle, shows videos of her orange cat to everyone who stands still long enough, and is among the first 1% of all twitter users (@KelsNotChels).

She also loves cheese. All kinds.

Kelsey is represented by Devin Ross of New Leaf Literary and Media.
