Kelly Oram wrote her first novel at age fifteen–a fan fiction about her favorite music group, The Backstreet Boys, for which family and friends still tease her. She's obsessed with reading, talks way too much, and loves to eat frosting by the spoonful. She lives outside of Phoenix, Arizona with her husband and four children.
From a writing standpoint, I think I love urban fantasy because I get to be a lot more creative. When you’re dealing with contemporary stories, you’re restricted to what a normal human can do, and you’re restricted to dealing with everyday life problems. I do love a good contemporary story. Books that can draw emotion from a reader, or stories that a reader can relate to on a personal level are sometimes the most powerful books out there. But sometimes you just want to pull out your seraph blade, get a little bloody, and send some evil creatures back to the underworld. Know what I mean? Who doesn’t enjoy saving the world with a good fight every now and then?
