Um... hi. Remember me?
I'm Kelly- the chick that writes those death row women?!

Sorry Ive been gone so long.

Since May I have been working on a book that I was contracted for and finally finished! It was probably the hardest thing I ever did in my life. I received the offer for the contract in May and since then I have been steadily plugging along with 25K words a month.

I finally finished! I turned it all in last week! I am so proud of it I cry every time I think of it. I dedicated it to my late mother who was a huge inspiration and my husband and family and a very dear, sweet, long time friend Terry Wells.

It is a nonfiction book on remodeling older homes which has been a life long passion of many of my family members. I have been around such projects all my life and truly enjoyed the process of writing the book.

There is no firm name for the book yet but as soon as publication is complete (I'm hearing mid September latest)I will be sure to post a link!

BUT
Now that I'm finished with it I will be returning to my one true love- my girls.

Michelle Byrom recently wrote me about her cousin and how she had been a reader for years. I have exchanged emails with her and I sincerely hope that this will be the beginning of some real healing for Michelle.

I also heard again from Antoinette Franks brother Adam. I wrote steadily a few years ago but stopped when my mother died. He writes periodically and seems so in need of a friend. If anyone would like to write him please email me or comment here please.

There is also a new woman on death row that Im an eagerly awaiting a letter from. Ill keep you posted.

I want to thank everyone who emailed me so worried. I had no idea so many people were still reading since I changed the blog name. I love you all. (Even the jealous, lurkers!)

Anyway- long story short-Im back!!

Brenda Andrew Execution date

Brenda Andrew is the only woman on Oklahoma death row. She is there for the murder of her husband by her and her boyfriend James Pavatt.

     Brenda does not answer letters. It seems she may still have a bit of that pretentious attitude left over from her days as a respected deacons wife. Those days are over, hun.

     There is no scheduled execution date for Brenda yet. Oklahoma lists its dates of execution for the prison she is in here.

     Every time I read about this case I am utterly amazed at how stupid these two people were. She may as well have advertised their guilt on a billboard in front of the house. Both Andrew's and Pavatt's appeal were systematically denied without comment in 2008.

The little Scorned episode "The Sunday School Killers" at the top of this post is about Brenda and James and its only $1.99 so its worth the money.

Morgan Smith Florida

Morgan Smith. Wow. Just, wow. She came from a family of mental illnesses with a father who committed suicide. She had spent her life on psychotropic drugs for severe depression and borderline personality disorder, the same thing that causes multiple personalities. She also became a sex slave for Daryl Smith in a long-term relationship that ended with a child.

Their relationship was everything the weird, late night, HBO documentaries say those things are. She met him after work and groveled at his feet in a leather outfit complete with chain leash and dog collar. She licked his boots clean and said thank you after he spanked her ass. She was a complete, total submissive, and seemed to enjoy being that way. She even changed her last name to his legally, even though he would not marry her. He had told her many times; no matter what she did, she would never be his wife.

Eventually he found another woman he was interested in, Andrea Stranko, and left Morgan and their
daughter. It devasta…

Texas May Have an Innocent Woman on Death Row

Kimberly Cargill is on death row for the killing of her mentally retarded babysitter, Cherry Walker. Ms. Walker was found burned on the side of a rural road in Texas. Doctors had diagnosed her as mentally challenged in 1995, saying she had the living skills of a 9 year old.

Witnesses, some her own family, testified that Cargill was abusive and violent toward them and to Cherry Walker. Cargill was arrested in 2010 on child abuse charges and a custody trial was pending in which Cherry Walker was slated to testify. The state alleged that Kimberly killed Cherry to keep her from testifying.

Kimberly has always said that she did not kill Cherry but that she suffered from a seizure as she was riding in the car with Kimberly. She had been prone to seizures and Kimberly panicked. She tried to revive her, but could not. When she realized Cherry was dead, she set her on fire in an attempt to rid any DNA from her body. She was certain she would be charged with her death.

She was convicted. She wa…
