Personal: KyLee Woodley is a cheery romance writer match-making her way through fictional Old West, Civil War, Oregon Territory, and even logging camps in the Pacific Northwest. She is a preschool teacher and Christian. In her spare time, she tends a rescue mutt—Lucky Dog—and a feisty feline named Hazel. She listens to country and K-Love, reads classic books to her children, and watches Marvel movies with her husband who might resemble Superman. 😉 They live in Oregon which is perfect for researching history and hiking in the mountains.
Academic: KyLee has a Bachelor’s in Elementary Education, with a Minor in Creative Writing from the Karen Kingsbury Center of Creative Writing at Liberty University. Her nonfiction short story “Water Lilies” is scheduled for 2020 publication in What Now? of Bible Advocate Press. She is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers and Oregon Christian Writers. In 2019, her unpublished novel Unbroken Promise was a finalist in ACFW’s First Impressions Contest and won first place for historical romance in the Phoenix Rattler Writing Contest. Her unpublished novel Nightingale Station is a semifinalist in Mountain Brook Ink‘s 2020 Fire Award. KyLee herself is a finalist in ACFW’s 2020 Mentor of the year award.
A note from KyLee:
Life is a lot of work. It is beautiful, dangerous, tragic, exhausting, and sometimes an absolute struggle. That is why we need good stories, so we can hide away from the worries of this world for a moment, step into the pages of our favorite book and just live. I hope to write something that is like stepping into another world–one that reflects God’s love for us–and changes my reader’s life for the better.
