Please keep in mind that this blog often has comments and statements directly from the women on death row. Statements of grief, statements of innocence, statements of regret and sorrow. If bearing audience to these women's feelings, my opinions or those of commenters offends you please do not read on.
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!!
