Kelly Hashway

Young Adult, Middle Grade, and Picture Book Author


I'm a former language arts teacher who now works as a full-time writer, freelance editor, and mother to an adorable little girl. In addition to writing YA novels, I write middle grade books, picture books, and short stories. When I'm not writing or digging my way out from under my enormous To Be Read pile, I'm running and playing with my daughter. I reside in Pennsylvania with my husband, daughter, and two pets. 

I've been writing for as long as I can remember. Poems, short stories, and now finally full-length novels. I've always loved books. Reading is a thing of magic. It has allowed me to enter into worlds I never would have known. I've cried, laughed, and been scared right alongside my favorite characters. And my hope is that people will do the same with my characters.
