About TrainerKelly’s Network

TrainerKelly's Network Logo

It’s the home of what I make for me and share with YOU! I’m so happy that you’re here and reading this, wanting to know more.

Probably the more “dry” description of TrainerKelly’s Network is that it’s an online archive of my original stories and illustrations. I personally think of it more like a home where you can find everything you are looking for that’s yours. Except in this case, you’re visiting my home on the Internet and you get to experience what is mine…that I am more than happy to share with you!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

About TrainerKelly

Photo of TrainerKelly

Hey there! I’m Kelly Mulry – although, you definitely know me better as TrainerKelly or just Kelly. My pronouns are they/them. I’m the one who runs TrainerKelly’s Network and I’m in charge of…well, everything. I write the stories, draw the artwork, code the website, and more. My pronouns are they/them.

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I love learning more about the people who create the works I love. Sometimes it’s just to glean inspiration from them: their stories help me on my own journey. Other times, let’s be honest here, it’s to figure out if they’re someone I actually want to support or not. Other times, it’s simply to humanize the person. It’s easy to forget that there IS another human being behind the works.

I started drawing waaaaaay back in the early 2000s by drawing fan characters for shows I loved and started writing not too long after that, both fanfiction and original works. I got into anime & manga BIG time in middle school and it has impacted my work ever since! My main art style inspiration is the older styles of the Pokémon anime mixed with minor influences from Sailor Moon and Tokyo Mew Mew. My writing is influenced by light novels.

Please do not confuse me with my character, Kelly! We are not the same person. *I* am TrainerKelly, she is not, regardless of form. Thank you!
