Barbara Ann Kelso is a writer, mother, and master of creature containment. With a professional background in social services and research she survived working in insurance, retail, and food service. She lives in Portland, Oregon, and has two wonderful children, one coddled feline, and three lively poultry. A graduate of Psychology from University of Oregon, she details her adventures that are domestic and otherwise at “Kelso Kids: Pooflinger Paparazzi” about life, love, and the lunacy of raising children in Portland. Her first novel of fiction was published this past fall of 2015, Chimera Lines.
