Love Summer Reading!!


I'm basking in the glory of my summer right now. Reading and writing everyday along with soaking up the sun...life is good.  I think it's important for everyone to get lost in a good story. I've teamed up with other authors for a huge multigenre summer promotion of free and 99c books. Every type of reader should be able to find something of interest, both fiction and nonfiction.  Click below to browse the selection of books.






My newly released coming of age light novel is also on sale right now for 99c  😄

Book Release

Today is the day! Sketches of My Soul launches today.






I'm excited for you to meet Tegan and Andrew.  This story took me awhile to write and I had many eyes on the story to help me. I want to thank Harmony Kent for working with me on the first set of edits. Also,  thanks to Mary at Ascend Editing who did an in-depth evaluation. Her knowledge is invaluable.

Here is an excerpt from the story:


Sketches of My Soul

   I reached the mailbox at the end of my driveway and sifted through the mail. Maybe I’d find a notice that I’d won a trip to another country, like Italy. I’d meet a hot Italian boy with a love of culture and music … stay there and study art …    The sound of spraying water pulled me out of my thoughts of Italian boys. My jaw dropped at the sight next door. Holy hotness! A shirtless guy that looked a little older than me, sprayed suds off a black jeep in my sixty-eight-year-old neighbor’s driveway. His muscles on full display. A tattoo flexed on his bicep with the flick of the hose. His dark hair curled at the ends and dipped into his face. Where did he come from and why was he at Mrs. White’s house?  I swiped a palm over my mouth to make sure I didn’t have drool dripping down my chin.

Just then Mrs. White zoomed up to check her mail on a hot-pink scooter with helmet to match. The sight of her sparked a grin. “Hi, Mrs. White. I like your new wheels.”

 “Hello, Tegan. She’s pretty, ain’t she?” Mrs. White rubbed her hand over the scooter. Bits of her white hair peeked out from under her helmet. Dark circles framed her emerald eyes.

 “Yes, she sure is.” I nodded. Mrs. White was like a grandma to me. I didn’t have grandparents growing up, and she’d taken me in like one of her own. She said that she saw a lot of herself in me. My eyes slipped from her to the shirtless wonder washing his jeep in her driveway. Mrs. White’s eyes followed mine and she let out a squeal, causing me to jump and fling my mail. “Do you remember Drewy? He decided to pay his grandma a visit. About time.”  She waved a hand in the air and called out, “Drewy come over here and say hello to Tegan.”

I dropped down to gather my scattered mail. Drewy. A fuzzy image a curly brown haired boy formed in my mind. We used to play together when we were little. He and his mom spent a lot of time at Mrs. White’s. One day, they up and moved to Michigan. I hadn’t seen him since. It never crossed my mind that it could be him next door. I rose and nearly tossed the mail all over again. Drewy McHottie was Andy!

Shout Out to YA Readers

 I'm super excited for the release of my latest young adult novel. This is one that I've worked on for for the past couple of years.  My main character, Tegan, spoke to me a lot at the start of the project then fell silent for awhile. I let the project sit for a few weeks trying to decide if I should just scratch it and start over. With the help of  Mary at Ascend Editing, I revived the story and was unable to connect with Tegan again. She helped me to zero in on the most important aspects of Tegan's story and what the readers would get out of knowing her.  From the beginning, I knew that this story would deal with the dynamics of a family who lives with an alcoholic. That hasn't changed.

  After finishing the novel, I had the dilemma of settling on a title. Something that has always stumped me. I decided to ask my readers, friends and colleagues at work to narrow down my choices for me. It came down to Sketches of My Soul or Art, Love, and Chocolate. You'll have to wait for my cover reveal to see which title won, 😊

 My goal is to release the novel in June. I'm putting a call out for readers to join my Street Team in preparation for the release. If you're interested in reading the book ahead of time for free in exchange for your feedback,  please click the picture below.  I look forward to hearing from you!

Just Like You Said it Would Be


          My Thoughts
 I immediately liked Amira and sympathized with her situation. Not only with her separation from her boyfriend, but her parents, and friends. She cares deeply for the people in her life and loves with her whole heart.  I found myself rooting for her Darragh. I wasn't disappointed. You will enjoy this well written story with a message for all of us.

Just Like You Said it Would Be
C.K. Kelly Martin
Publication date: February 15th 2017
Genres: Contemporary, Young Adult
Did you ever want something so much that it felt like a kind of sickness, one you didn’t want to be cured of? On New Year’s Eve the feeling compels seventeen-year-old Amira to text the Irish ex-boyfriend she’s been missing desperately since they broke up at the end of summer, when she returned to Canada.
They agreed they wouldn’t be friends, that it would never be enough. But that was then— back when Amira’s separated parents had shipped her off to relatives in Dublin for the summer so they could test-drive the idea of getting back together on a long haul cruise. Back when Amira was torn away from a friend in need in Toronto only to fall in love with a Dublin screenwriting class and take a step closer to her dream career. And only to fall for cousin Zoey’s bandmate, Darragh, the guy who is first her friend, then her enemy and later something much more complicated—the guy she can say anything to, the guy who makes every inch of her feel wide awake in a way she hadn’t known was possible. The guy she might never see again. Or is there, despite the distance, somehow still a chance for them?


Author Bio:
Long before I was an author I was a fan of books about Winnie the Pooh, Babar, Madeline, Anne Shirley and anything by Judy Blume. Throughout high school my favourite class was English. No surprise, then, that most of my time spent at York University in Toronto was as an English major--not the traditional way to graduate with a B.A. in Film Studies but a fine way to get a general arts education.
After getting my film studies degree I headed for Dublin, Ireland and spent the majority of the nineties there in forgettable jobs meeting unforgettable people and enjoying the buzz. I always thoughts I'd get around to writing in earnest eventually and I began writing my first novel in a flat in Dublin and finished it in a Toronto suburb. By then I'd discovered that writing about young characters felt the freshest and most exciting to me. You have most of your life to be an adult but you only grow up once.
Currently residing near Toronto with my Dub husband, I became an Irish citizen in 2001 and continue to visit Dublin as often as I can. My first young adult book, I Know It's Over, came out with Random House in September 2008 and was followed by One Lonely Degree, The Lighter Side of Life and Death, My Beating Teenage Heart and Yesterday. I released Yesterday's sequel, Tomorrow, in 2013 and put out my first adult novel, Come See About Me, as an ebook in June 2012. My most recent YA book, The Sweetest Thing You Can Sing, was published by Cormorant Books' Dancing Cat Books imprint in 2014 and I'm pleased to announce they'll be releasing my upcoming contemporary young adult novel, Delicate, on September 16th.
