Kelli Hughes

Kelli was born and raised in Georgia. She has worked with children her entire career and truly has a passion for improving the lives of children around the world. 

Kelli is the author behind the Banana and Basil series. She works in the healthcare industry specializing in pediatric massage therapy. Kelli's inspiration for writing the Banana & Basil series was sparked from her time spent reading to special needs children who wanted something more from the books they read. Kelli made it her mission to create a book that the whole family could fall in love with.

You can often find Kelli at her local coffee shop sipping her favorite drink working on her next book. She loves rainy days, crisp autumn nights and peppermint lattes. She never knew she had such a love for writing until she stumbled on writing adventure stories for kids.
