Daishon Kelly was born and raised in Morgantown WV. He is passionate about writing and wrote his first story when he was five. When he saw the devastation caused by the June flood in Southern West Virginia he wanted to help. Having lost his own father last year, he knew how families felt who were torn apart and wanted to give hope to those who lost everything. He wants to offer encouragement and remind everyone that we can all come together and pick up the pieces no matter how difficult it may be. Daishon has raised funds to help with flood relief and will continue his efforts from sales of his book. He lives in Morgantown with his mother, Melanie Kelly and his sister, Kaylese.
