Born and raised in Davenport, Kayla first started writing as a junior at Davenport West High School.
After graduating, she continued writing for Scott Community College while getting her associate’s degree and then for Western while getting her bachelor’s.
Kayla and her husband, Dominic, adopted their dog Sultan, in March of 2018 and then married later that year in September.
