-preserver of crumpled paper-​


Kelly Martone is a fiction, poetry, and creative essay writer. Her pieces are frequently updated and listed above. ***Freshly published flash fiction!

She lives with her husband and two children in a national park. They may or may not live in a hobbit hole.

She is seeking representation for her full-length novel: a contemporary romance transforms into a winding tale of fantasy through fire, music, and flowers.  





New romantasy novel—



  • second chance romance written in the stars
  • wildland firefighter/lovable rogue
  • exotic magic system
  • all hope is lost until music saves the day


Marvels, magic, and mystery bloom in this modern tale played in the chord of hope. Listen to the song to see beauty through the fire.



Do wildland firefighters secretly grow wildflowers?

“The fire is getting a little spicy,” said the guy who has endured hundreds of them. In a world that is burning, a wildland firefighter discovers love and a musical ability that ignites hope for his life and the world.





The soul without imagination is what an observatory would be without a telescope.
