Working on my 2nd novel

After I published my first novel, I decided to work on my second novel that entirely takes place in Boston during the terrorist bombings that took place on the marathon of April 19, 2013. When I saw the horrible images on the news, I felt the goose bumps, just like the 9/11 attack in 01.


Here in this blog, you can read the prologue I wrote.

How I Ruined Winter … For Almost Everyone




I love January! Said no one, ever.


Okay, some people actually do love winter, which just goes to show you: Northern Indiana needs better mental health screening. I used to take part in winter activities, but I was young then, and young people just haven’t learned that being miserable isn’t an adventure.


When I was a kid, I loved sledding, snowball fights, and…

Here's hoping 2015 is better

I’m not going to lie to you: 2014 sucked.  Everybody got sick or hurt at least once, and the world’s a train wreck. On a personal level I lost my first writing job after twenty-three years of steady work, and the book sales that might have made up for it have stagnated. On a family level I can’t even say “at least we have our health”.

But I can’t dwell on the bad stuff—there lies madness, and don’t we have enough madness? I have a new part time writing job and people are, if…

Merry Christmas!

I would like to take the time to Share the Gift of Christmas with you. This is a season of love and kindness, a time to show others that we care about them more than they realize. Why do we want to do better at Christmas time? I believe it stems from the Birth of the Savior. "He is the Gift" given to us from a loving Heavenly Father.

Russell M. Nelson said, "Christmas is a time of reflection on what we can become because of God’s sacred gift. As we discover the gift, we learn of the…

Secrets of the Moon Saga Work in Progress

As of right now I’m busy trying to finish the Secrets of the Moon saga. I just turned in book two and three. Although, they’re more of a 1.5 kind of books considering that not only are they entirely from Kyran’s POV but it depicts what’s going on while my main character, Marjorie, is still at the hospital after being attacked by a werewolf.

Now, if you’re not familiar with the first book below is a little more information on it:

Bringing Historical Romances Alive for Today’s Readers By Romance Author Kelli A. Wilkins

Hi everyone,

My name is Kelli Wilkins, and I write historical, gay, paranormal, and contemporary romances. People often ask me how I can switch genres so easily and write such diverse stories. “What’s the trick?” they want to know. Well, the trick is… there is none.

Writing historical romances is pretty much like writing contemporaries. I use the same basic storytelling techniques—an interesting plot, sympathetic characters, and the right mix of backstory, setting, and details…

Forget Congress, here’s the writing vote

I forgot to announce the results of my Facebook poll, in which I asked everyone which direction I should take my humor writing (other than in a downward spiral):

10 people voted I should sell my column to another newspaper or magazine; a regular income is cool. This I’ve done, with “Slightly Off The Mark” now appearing monthly in the Kendallville Mall. (If any businesses would like to sponsor my column, get in touch!)

9 people thought I should write more humor books;…

The Real First Thanksgivng … Or Not




Thanksgiving in America continues to be one of the most traditional holidays. It still features the original four hundred year old activities of overeating, football, and complaining about Black Friday.


In the Hunter household, as in all of Indiana and much of the world that’s not outside this country, we battle the overeating. How? By serving food that the rest of the year we hate. Stuffing stuff. Cranberry…
