About Mitzi

Mitzi Kelly

"The way I write is similar to the sausage making process.  I come up with an idea, throw everything in and then grind it up well.  Then I spend countless hours picking out the stuff that tastes yucky!"

Mitzi lives in Texas, loving everything about the huge state. From the stark beauty of the desert plains, to the majestic glory of the mountains, to the intense power of the ocean, she’s never had a desire to live anywhere else. Traveling is nice, but there’s noMitzi Kelly, author of the Silver Sleuths Mystery series from Avalon Books place like Texas! 


She was raised in El Paso with her three brothers, and credits her parents, Lewis and Lucretia Rothman, for providing an idyllic childhood. There hasn’t been a sport invented that the family was not involved in, and Mitzi vividly remembers weekends where the family rushed from a gymnastics meet to a football game, to a baseball game, and then to the golf course, and still somehow fit in family meals and those never-ending pesky chores!


Her family relocated to Houston, but Mitzi moved to San Antonio where she married her soul mate and best friend, John, and in 1982 their son, John Lewis, was born.  She was able to follow her dream of creating stories between family life and commercial painting beside her construction-owner husband. Her first book, a cozy mystery, was published in 2010 and between now and the time she kicks the bucket, she plans on publishing in every conceivable genre.  Except horror.  Probably not horror.  Horror is a little too scary . . .
