Kellie Doherty grew up in Eagle River, Alaska. Living in Alaska gave her an appreciation for nature, a hankering for a good cup of tea (or cider), and a love for all things below zero. She moved to Portland, OR, in 2014 to pursue a master’s degree in book publishing from Portland State University.

Kellie has always been a writer. No, she’s always been a lover of books and by extension a lover of words, of imagination, of fantastical realms to dwell and dream. Reading Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling helped her realize her passion for writing. After spending time in already created universes writing fanfiction as SerenityQuill, she decided to build her own. She’s crafted many different worlds since then. {And still plays in the fandom worlds, too.}

Her first book - Finding Hekate - will debut in April 2016, published by Desert Palm Press. She is currently working on the sequel.

In her free time she likes to read, write blogposts, go for hikes, and watch too much Netflix than she probably should. She also likes to do freelance work in both editing and design. {Check out her Freelance Work, if interested.}
