ABOUT KELLY LIGHT

  • Born in 1970 off exit 149 of the Garden State Parkway, I grew up down the shore surrounded by giant roadside dinosaurs, cotton candy colors and skee ball sounds. I was schooled on Saturday morning cartoons and Sunday Funny pages. I picked up a pencil and started drawing and never stopped. I am excited to have lots of books coming out starting Spring of 2013. The first two are illustrated chapter books ; “The Quirks, Welcome to Normal” by Erin Soderberg from Bloomsbury and “Elvis and the Underdogs” by Jenny Lee from Balzer and Bray.I wrote and Illustrated two picture books in the Louise series; Louise Loves Art and Louise and Andie, The Art of Friendship. There are two readers in the series as well Louise Loves Bake Sales and Louise and the Class Pet. I am currently working on new books!!
