Book authorship

Kellie Rice is a screenwriter and novelist.

A graduate of San Jose State University, she received her MFA in Creative Writing in 2010 in Fiction with a secondary emphasis in Screenwriting. While writing is definitely her strong suit, she also enjoys acting, film making, and many other creative endeavors.

Coming from a small rural town in the Santa Cruz Mountains, a love of nature and living with the land finds its way into nearly all of her work. A recurrent theme in her writing is the exploration of gender roles. Most of her main characters are women, and many of them have the traditional male role of the epic hero. She harbors a great love for the whimsical and adventurous, with a healthy dash of darkness and romance.

It is suiting, then, that her name is Irish for "woman warrior; bright-headed."
