Photo Finish: Kellye has actual author photos!

So in my eternal quest to feel like a “real author,” I got official author photos taken a couple of weeks ago. The photo I’ve been using was actually the result of acting as a stand-in at work to help our staff photographer get ready to photograph a much more important person. Here it is…
