Kelly Harms is the bestselling author of several novels, most notably, The Overdue Life of Amy Byler and The Goodluck Girls of Shipwreck Lane. Her books explore the inner world of women whose lives did not turn out as planned, women who are thrust into incredible, often hilarious situations like winning a new home only to find out you have to share it with a woman of the same name, or a cocktail party that has some seriously Freaky Friday-like consequences. Her books have topped the charts on Amazon, Washington Post, and USA Today, and The Overdue Life of Amy Byler was a Goodreads Readers Choice Top Ten pick (2019).
A former literary agent, Kelly traded the New York hustle and bustle for the dream of being an author in a quieter life in Madison, Wisconsin with her sparkling son, Griffin; her fluffy dog, Scout; and her beloved Irishman. When she’s not getting lost reading a book, she’s either writing, or on the water, in the water, or near the water.
