Kelly Hollingshead is an avid reader who prefers books over music. He found entertainment in books as a child, due to growing up in a large family where money was always tight. However, the library was always free and entertainment was endless, simply waiting between book covers.
Kelly has been married for ten years to his wife Melissa and they have a one-year-old daughter whose nickname is Ms. Brynn. From an early age, Kelly has approached writing as an enjoyable pastime until his wife convinced him to try to publish at least one story. When not working on The Riley series, Kelly enjoys extreme workouts, cookouts on the grill with his friends and family, and late nights of watching UFC fight pass.
