Kelly has been featured in several documentaries, most notably, 'On the Wings of Eagle,' by Tam Productions, and has been written about in the book, 'Barque of Saviors,' by Russell Drumm.
A Southern California native, Kelly now lives in Saint Augustine, Florida where she is currently working on her next book.
