Kellie Abbott was born into a family whose Texas roots run four generations deep. Her first steps were taken in the barn her great-grandfather built, alongside a paddock of horses that Kellie learned to ride before the training wheels were off her tricycle. By the time she headed off to college, Kellie knew she wanted to do something that would keep her connected to her family and to her southwestern heritage. It wasn’t long before she turned to writing about all the things she loves. Fast forward fifteen years and Kellie is now married and living just down the road from her family’s ranch. Her children climb the same trees she once did, and she and her veterinarian husband go hiking alongside the creek where she once caught crawdads. In her books, Kellie seeks to share her love of all things romance and the Wild West!
