Dr. Kela Henry is a family practitioner and has been practicing medicine since 2003 in the Atlanta, Georgia area.

She is also the author of the new book NIA & THE NUMBERS GAME, A Teenager’s Guide to Education, Relationships & Sex


“Dr. Henry, a practicing physician specializing in family medicine, gives her readers a very likeable and relatable protagonist in Nia. Henry doesn’t talk down to her audience, nor does she try and sugarcoat any of the information she provides. The tone of the book is always casual, yet frank and very Judy Blume-esque in its candor. Nia & the Numbers Game delivers on what it sets out to do: offering frank discussion and invaluable education while entertaining young readers.” Self-Publishing Review, ★★★★½

Nia and the Numbers Game is an entertaining, sensitive and factual guide for teen girls who are facing decisions about education and sex.”Haywood Smith, New York Times and USA Today Best-Selling Author
