Though I’ve been writing in one form or another since the age of twenty, Delta Legend is my
first solo novel. I began writing in college, creating character monologues as a way to stand out
in auditions. Before long I was cranking out sketch comedy and one-act plays.
When I found myself in Los Angeles, with then husband, Michael Bertram, I transitioned to
writing for screen. Delta Legend was orignally a screenplay from my time in Hollywood and I'm proud to be one of the few writers who've successfully turned a spec into a novel.
I hold a degree in Theatre Arts from San Francisco State University and have worked in
production and post-production the Entertainment Industry in Northern California and Los Angeles. I'm also a Foodie and can often be found teaching cooking classes or acting as Prep
Chef for some of great culinary artists at The Kitchen in Alamo, California.
I currently reside in the San Francisco Bay Area with my partner, Sound Engineer/Producer, Tom Size, and the incredibly spoiled pets of Camp Runamuck.
Update February 2018: Dear Friends, I have been largely abscent from the literary world since
December of 2015 when my long-time partner, Tom Size, was diagnosed with Melanona. After
a valiant fight, Tom left this world on October 30, 2016. Since then, my writing has been mostly about loss and healing. I am gradually returning to the land of the living and am grateful for
all the love and support. - Kelan
