  Home / Authors / Kelly Milner Halls  



Kelly Milner Halls studied journalism at Brigham Young University with an eye toward
writing for adults. But her heart gradually drew her to the realm of nonfiction for
kids. For two decades, she has crafted quality work for young readers of all ages, first
in children’s magazines and newspaper sections including Highlights for Children,
Babybug, U.S. Kids, Children’s Digest, Ask, Dig, Fox Kids, Curiocity for Kids, Guidepost
for Kids, Guidepost for Teens, Teen PEOPLE, the Chicago Tribune, the Atlanta
Journal Constitution, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and many other publications.

With more than a 1,000 published articles and book reviews behind her, Milner Halls turned to writing well researched, sometimes quirky nonfiction children’s books, many critically acclaimed. Reluctant readers and their peers have embraced her backlist and look forward to exploring whatever she offers them next. Her frequent school visits keep that connection current, personal and real.

“This is where I belong,” the author says. “I get paid for being weird, and I’ve never felt more authentic – or more completely at home. I love what I do, and I hope that passion is abundantly clear.”
