Describe yourself in three words:
Indecisive. People Pleaser.
Tell us a little about your latest release:
Saving Sloan is the sequel to Saint Sloan and takes place about five months later.
Sloan Bridges is doing her best to move on from a horrible attack that left her scarred, literally. Her attacker is in a wheelchair awaiting trial. With him out of her life, she focuses on other things like school, Prom, and those Hunter boys.
Someone won't allow her to be happy.
On Sunday, she receives five long stem roses and a note in the front seat of her locked car: Five days before the fall.
What the fall is, she has no idea. Whatever it is, it doesn't sound good. Every day, Sloan gets one less rose and another note. No one else sees them, though, and they think she's either losing her mind or taking too much pain medicine.
She knows better. With the countdown nearly complete, can Sloan figure out who is threatening her before someone she loves pays with his life?
What is your earliest memory?
I remember sitting in my sister's lap. I was 3. Not sure why I remember that, but I do.
What would you consider the greatest moment in your life?
When I became a Mommy. When I got my first teaching job... and the first 'yes' from a publisher.
What’s the hardest thing in in life you’ve done?
Tell a child no for it's own good. The look a 3 year old gives you when you 'break their heart' hurts.
What have you learned in life so far?
That I don't know much about life ;)
Everyone’s favourite question: if you could invite five people for dinner, who would it be?
My Daddy (he's been dead 11 years). My mama. Bill Clinton, Judas, and Jesus -- That would be an interesting conversation...
Chance for our readers - what else would you like to know about Kelly Martin?


  1. How do you find time to do all that you do?

    1. I write a lot at night. My girls play by themselves a lot (I mean they like to play together. There are 3 of them so they keep themselves entertained). And, Hmmm.... I don't know. It's easy to get burned out. <3
