Author Tidbits: Jacqueline Kelly

In case you forgot, Jacqueline Kelly is the talented author behind The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate. But before that she was a physician and a lawyer. She was born in New Zealand, but that didn’t last very long. Soon she moved to Canada with her family, and then to the desert and heat of Texas. You can imagine what a shock she must have gotten, going from forests on Vancouver Island to the environment of El Paso. That’s where she attended university, and then she went to Galveston to study to be a physician. But she soon turned her back on that and went to law school.

Finally, after all those years, Jacqueline finally decided writing was for her. Her first short story was written in 2001, and the novel that was her debut came out in 2009. This was The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate. She based the setting on what she saw as a child, and the dog Ajax is based on her own beloved dog Elvis. Aren’t you surprised what an interesting life this author has led?
