Kelly writes for several reasons.
1. To escape.
2. To figure out the ingredients in her constantly-evolving Koolaid, drink it, and serve it to you.
3. To tell you to keep pressing on in the writing journey. You, not her. She’s definitely not using this space to cheer herself on or pick herself up by her bootstraps.
Kelly’s published a few horror, sci-fi, and literary pieces. She’s writing her third novel and sharing her journey with a group of women who call themselves The Little Red Writing Hoods. One is a Nebula winner and fencer who adores cats. One hails from Texas and writes for CoolCleveland. One is our spirit guide and Chicken Soup for our Souls. One writes us all to shame, with seven published books to her credit. One is a second-degree blackbelt who kicks it on the page. One wears black, always. People need stability in life, especially writers. And black goes with everything.
Any poor decision Kelly makes can be handily blamed on having her head cut open in 2018. As skilled as neurosurgeons are, once you shift that stuff around, you’re not the same. Not really. Sometimes she writes about her debacles, but mostly she wraps them in fiction and changes critical pieces of information.
