Thank you for stopping by! My name is Keri D. James. I would encourage you to also visit me at

My most important work here on Fictionpress is my young adult novel called Sealed With a Kiss. It's specifically being written for young gays and lesbians as they're dealing with coming out or being in the closet. I remember wishing I had some young adult novels at my fingertips when I was a teenager; it's really nice to see more of them being published these days. What's most important to me in writing this novel is letting somebody know: "It's okay. You're not alone." Sure, adult gay/lesbian literature is all good and well, but there's something powerful in these types of stories hitting teen shelves. These kinds of stories give hope... and I hope that mine will end up doing that as well.

Aside from the novel, I'm also a big poetry person. I only have a few poems up here on Fictionpress. Feel free to visit my site for more!

Other than those fairly obvious passions of mine, I'm simply a 36-year-old woman who's had a fairly interesting life so far... full of love, friendship, family, grief and loss. I also hope that SWAK will bring comfort to those who have lost a parent or both parents. It's a very lonely, hard journey and it's okay to feel the way you feel. Please feel free to reach out if you want to chat.

And I highly appreciate it when you leave a review! I will respond. :) I especially appreciate it when people leave comments about things they've noticed that could be worked on or developed. It's because of those comments that I've gone back and tried to fix some of the things that were there before. So they are read, they are appreciated and they make my story better. THANK YOU!

Sealed with a Kiss YA and Fiction reviews
A coming out, lesbian novel focusing on the relationship between two young, sassy and lovable women...as well as the friendships and relationships affected by their love. Also under the YA section, but I felt it also fit with the normal Fiction genre.
