Kate Kelly is an over-caffeinated, “semi-single parent” with five strong-willed daughters, a 1-year-old Great Pyrenees “Miss Scout”, two crazy black labs, “Sparky” and “Bella”, an eastern box turtle named io, and a husband of over 22 yrs working 700 mi away from home.
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 at Chick-fil-A (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 Kindle app with her at all times so that she can read at stoplights, in waiting rooms, and when she is stuck waiting in the car for her daughters, because she rarely has time to read when she is home.
