Kelly Jones is terribly fond of manatees, glitter, good stories, and dance parties. She is a North Carolinian who has a tendency to abandon her home state for large chunks of time for the charm and confusion of New Orleans. Kelly switches hats often; she has been a baker, a banker, a bartender, a ghost writer, an educator, and an events organizer. In her spare time she writes poetry, runs The Gambler Mag, splashes around in bodies of water, and tries to come to terms with the concept of infinity.
