Author Writing Naked Showing your vulnerability can be frightening — especially when you’re sharing those vulnerabilities with strangers. It wasn’t until Kelly started sharing her stories in her true authentic voice, did she realize how powerful it could be. Kelly will be speaking about her experience of “writing naked” and how being authentic in her stories and in her life led her to some amazing adventures.
~ Kelly Harman was born in Asmara, Ethiopia in 1962 and has walked the road less traveled ever since. Her childhood was spent overseas, living in eight countries before she came to the U.S. at the age of 16. This experience inspired an adventurous streak and disregard for convention which has yielded a rich life, overflowing with great story material.
Kelly has been writing and telling the stories of her life for as long as she can remember, and is proud to say that she received her first official rejection letter when she was eleven years old. Her work has been published in a variety of magazines and newspapers, including the anthology “New Departures,” released in 2012. Her first book, “Did I Say That Out Loud?” is a collection of her stories and was published in June 2013. It can be found on Amazon.com and independent bookstores around the country. ~
