Kate Kelly, Life of a GingerKate Kelly is an introverted, over-caffeinated, work from home mom with five smart, amazing, strong-willed kids, a black lab named Sparky, two Great Pyrenees puppies named Winnie and Oliver, a Pocket Pyr named Luci, an eastern box turtle named io, a Russian tortoise named Zonder, a bearded dragon named Mushu and, last but not least, a husband of nearly 24 yrs.

In her spare time, Kate enjoys traveling the globe, sampling fine cuisine, and volunteering for charity events. Because she has no spare time, she instead manages an occasional trip through the drive-thru (which counts as travel and dining) and “volunteering” to chauffeur her girls to their activities.

Kate loves to cook and is always subjecting her family to new dishes… sometimes to great acclaim and sometimes not so much.

An avid reader, Kate carries her iPhone loaded with the app with her at all times so that she can read at stoplights, in waiting rooms, and when she is stuck in the car waiting for her daughters, because she rarely has time to read when she is home.
