When Kristi isn’t riding her Harley or working her day job, you can find her in front of her computer, hammering out exciting suspense stories, or chatting around on social media.
Although she has honed her writing craft for 30+ years, she only published her first book in 2012. Her strange and varied work history - having held jobs from a hotel housekeeper, a car wash attendant, an insurance underwriter, an electronics assembly line worker, a date entry tech in auto parts warehouse, a blueberry nursery shipping coordinator, a local delivery driver, and a truck driver and owner of her own trucking company - gives her a broad base from which to build her characters and storylines. Now a billing specialist for The Arc of Lane County, she supports those who care for people with disabilities while she pursues her writing career in earnest.
She got married for the first time at 38, skipped being a mommy and went straight to Grandma.

Praise for Anne Kelleher and "A Once and Future Love"…
“What a fascinating book! Ms. Kelleher has taken time travel to a new level. Packed with energy and intrigue, this is one not to miss! The time period is cleverly brought to life, and the author does a credible job of handling various historical elements.”
—Amy Wilson, Literary Times
A SUPERB MEDIEVAL ROMANCE WITH A TIME TRAVEL TWIST
“A Once and Future Love is a passionate time travel romance that is based on a love that flows forever. Both incarnations of Richard are fabulously drawn, but especially intriguing is the modern day soul coping with the loss of a loved one. Kelleher’s novel [is] a spectacular Medieval romance with a time traveling twist.”
—5 stars from Amazon Top Reviewer Harriet Klausner
“All lovers of time travel should look to acquire this book for their keeper shelves! Superb read!”
“Full of visceral detail, this book almost made me wish I could step in an English castle and vanish into the past.”
“This is probably one of the best time-travels I’ve ever read. It’s rich with history, and the characters are completely believable. I thought the author did a particularly great job with the hero—I could really fall in love with him!"
