Kelli found her love of writing after being in a serious accident which left her hospitalized for five months, and in a wheel chair for over a year. Before the accident, Kelli was working as an ophthalmologist assistant in a very busy practice. After the accident, she was no longer able to work. Kelli spend a great deal of time trying to find ways to make money while bedridden. She found a freelance writing site, and began bidding on projects. After doing a few, she began writing exclusively for one client. She did work on various topics. Her working relationship with this client continued for seven years, right up until the client retired.
After losing her exclusive client, Kelli began writing for various sites online, as well as a few regular clients.
Kelli also writes a blog with her brother Matthew Dicks. Matthew has had three novels published which were received quite well in several different languages. The blog which they are writing together includes memories of their childhood from both Kelli's and Matthew's points of view. The blog is located at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kelli's success as a writer has grown enough that she no longer needs to work outside of her home.
