Kelsey Rodkey is a burrito lover, banter enthusiast, and young adult writer, who strives to create the stories she lacked as a teenager. Before starting her job as a communications coordinator, she helped a British film crew make a documentary about a dog grooming expo and was an extra in a music video as a girl who couldn’t stop playing with her hair. She lives a few minutes from the capital of Pennsylvania, which a lot of people think is Philadelphia. She is represented by Bridget Smith.
