Welcome to my website!

Author, Kate KellyAfter a number of years as an author and frequent collaborator on books as diverse as business strategies for the Internet, “living well” with macular degeneration, and many titles on getting organized, I now am pursuing my interest in history.  I am using both my speaking and writing abilities to share the information I love with as many people as possible. From relating stories of how Americans have celebrated Election Day throughout the years to writing a just completed six-volume history of medicine, I am having the time of my life.

I’m also blogging for The Huffington Post on topics that show history’s relevance to the news of today. To read some of my posts, visit www.huffingtonpost.com/kate-kelly.

My ceaseless curiosity and enthusiasm for research has brought me in contact with amazing stories of honor, perseverance, humanity and humor.

If you remember history as a boring class in school, I offer you an opportunity to view history with new eyes.  If you pick up one of my books–or ask me to speak to one of your groups–I will show you a world that will delight you. You’ll realize that history is made up of hardworking people and that some of them could have been your relatives.

To contact me for information about my books or to book me to speak to your group, write kkelly@katekelly.com

Nobel Peace Prize winner Jane Addams (1860-1935) once wrote:

“People do not want to hear about simple things.
They want to hear about great things–simply told.”
