Kelly Emery—Social Media Specialist & Graphic Designer

Social Media Specialist & Graphic Designer  – Kelly has been a lover of books since her teens, borrowing her mother’s fiction novels as often as possible. After years of reading murder mysteries, she picked up her first romance novel in 2006 and became absolutely enamored with the genre. This passion led her to blogging in 2015, becoming immersed in everything romance.

Along with books, Kelly’s other great passion is art. Having a creative mind at an early age, she’s had her artwork published in literary magazines, which led her to pursue her education at Dakota State University, majoring in art/art history. Combining her love of books with art, Kelly specializes in graphic design, helping authors by creating unique graphics tailored to their needs. She also specializes in social media management, spreading the word about InkSlinger PR clients and their books.

When Kelly isn’t reading, found on social media, or crafting digital graphics, she enjoys spending time with her family, working on puzzles, traveling, and watching as much baseball as she can. She currently lives in Arizona with her husband, 2 children, and their dog, Coco. You can follow her on Twitter @KellyAEmery and Instagram @kelly_emery_.
