Kallyn Jones spent years as an artist and graphic designer before returning to her roots as an author. She writes about sexy, down-to-earth characters and the crazy families they make along the way. She delights in finding heroes and heroines in unusual places. She believes the happily ever afters that are fought for the hardest are also the sweetest. An autoimmune warrior for most of her life, she’s also a mom to an autoimmune kid. She champions those who often find themselves flat on their backs, for days or weeks at a time, through no fault of their own. The Southern Oaks series is dedicated to them. Besides, what else is a word-lover to do when she’s stuck in a pediatric waiting room for several hours a week?
