Book 1: Raffle's Name
Clem is a dog with a secret: he is an alien from Planet Kax! He discovers he has the ability to manipulate thoughts. He goes a little nuts with this, telling squirrels to throw pine cones at the pesky little dogs next door and telling ants to eat the little dogs' food. But at the end he discovers what he is supposed to be doing with this talent.
"This was a really good book. It made me think differently about my dog."~Amazon reviewer
"After a few pages I fell in love with this book. I couldn't put it down. The point of view is spot on for the book. Who knew an author can actually get the point of view of a dog right?"~Amazon reviewer
"Such an amazing and vividly detailed story. This puts an entirely new perspective on dogs. I would recommend this to anyone who loves dogs (especially large breeds)."~Amazon reviewer
Clem's humans adopt a dog to be his brother, but Oreo is a rascal who would rather chew up the humans' shoes.
"My 9 year old son loved this book and can't wait for book 3, and he is a picky reader. He gives it two thumbs up."~Amazon reviewer
"Full of things that will make you laugh and touch your heart."~Amazon reviewer
"As a parent, it is hard to find good clean books that my son will actually read and enjoy. The Dog Aliens series delivers this consistently through out. My wife, son and I all read the books together and we all enjoyed them. Being a Dog owner, we know joke about our dog reading scent signals and relaying messages. We even discussed briefly if he knows he is from Kax or not."~Amazon reviewer

CIR: What gave you the idea for the Dog Aliens series?
KELLEY: My real-life dogs inspired these books. I would often imagine I heard them telling me these stories!
CIR: What would you compare this book to?
KELLEY: A reviewer says they're "like an alien version of Beverly Hills Chihuahua vs Air Bud!" I love that, and I agree.
CIR: Are any of the characters like you or someone you know?
KELLEY: She Wolf Neya is my mom, who is a neonatal intensive care nurse in real life. She gets a big kick out of being portrayed as a she wolf babysitting her brother and sister pups.
