Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Kelly's ambitions are eclipsed only by her desire to exist entirely in pajamas. Fortunately pajamas and writers go hand in hand (most of the time).

Kelly has a fancy degree in Sequential Art from The Savannah College of Art & Design and has published two novels - THE GIRL WHO WOULD BE KING (2012) and STORYKILLER (2014) as well as the graphic novel HEART IN A BOX from Dark Horse Comics (2015). She's currently writing CAPTAIN MARVEL, BLACK WIDOW, and DEADPOOL for Marvel Comics and SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH for Archie Comics. Other credits include: Uncanny X-Men, West Coast Avengers, Jessica Jones, Rogue & Gambit, Mr & Mrs X, Hawkeye, Phasma, and A-Force for Marvel; Ghostbusters, Jem & the Holograms, and The Misfits for IDW; Nancy Drew for Dynamite; and the creator-owned Mega Princess (2017) for Boom.

Please buy all her stuff so that she can buy (and wear) more pajamas.
