Kelly Rinne ~ Writing Award Judge

Kelly Rinne judging the eBook Award writing contest

Kelly Rinne is a publisher looking for writers and authors to publish and is the owner of Spectrum Audiobooks, a publishing house with a focus on high-quality audiobooks, with over 20 authors signed and 100 books in production. Kelly is also looking for authors to offer an audiobook production.

Kelly is a bit of a polymath. Her career has spanned live theatre as a designer, FM radio host in a major market, and website developer for Big Three automotive as a resident of the Midwest in the United States.

She made her start in the opera, where she gained a deep appreciation for the auricular arts. Before starting Spectrum, she narrated over 75 herself–an impressive feat she slipped in around her day job producing live sports for ESPN and plushie designer. Her genres run the gamut, from romance to sci-fi and lit RPG.

Kelly is not big on free time. She took a weekend off once in 2012. It didn’t sit well with her! In our 2020 Awards Kelly was delighted to find five unpublished writers and offered them a publishing contract and audiobook production. She also found fifteen self-published authors and offered to republish their books with an audiobook production.
