In her first book “Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories,” Kelly shows what really makes her tick. As a professional, as a wife, as a daughter, and as a mother, she brings a hard-earned wisdom and an eye for the absurdity of life to every minute of every day. Surprising, at times savage, a little shameless, and always with humor…”Live Wire” shows Kelly as she really is offscreen — a very wise woman who has something to say.
