Kelli L. Hicks is a teacher, mom, sports fan, and an author. She wrote her first real story in third grade about a trip to the moon and has been writing ever since. She likes writing nonfiction because she is a fan of facts, real people, and true events. When she isn't writing, she can be found at the soccer field coaching her daughter's team or watching her son try to put the ball into the back of the net. Kelli and her family spend much of their time outside enjoying the Florida sunshine.
