Hello, and thanks for dropping by! My name is Alycia Kelly (pen name “Lee Kelly”), and I’m a fiction writer, a lawyer by trade and a mom to two wonderful but very busy kids. My adult speculative thriller debut, CITY OF SAVAGES, released in 2015 from Simon & Schuster / Saga Press. My follow-up crime fantasy, A CRIMINAL MAGIC, released in 2016, and was optioned and developed for TV last year.
I was born and raised in Philadelphia, went to Georgetown University and, with the exception of a couple years spent in glorious Santa Monica on the west coast, I’ve been buzzing around New York ever since.
What am I currently working on? I’m in the final stages of my first young adult project, a genre-bending mystery that I’m very excited about. I’m also co-writing a YA historical adventure (think Gilded Age feminist Indy Jones!), and in the early stages of a contemporary fantasy.
In any event, I’m always looking for good NYC-driven fiction (or any good fiction!), so please drop me a line or a tweet if you have any recommendations. And for Moms-to-be, check out my Baby Book reviews tab! I WISH someone had done this prior to me spending hours and hours reading some of the deadbeats :). .
