Kelly Thompson is currently working on a memoir-in-progress entitled "Oh Darling Girl." Just as the narrator gets sober, one of her two barely adolescent daughters descends into addiction and rebels against her mother's newfound lifestyle of recovery. The narrator is instantly challenged to grapple not only with her own recovery but how to save her daughter or deal with the fact that she might not be able to. As she struggles to face down a transgenerational legacy of violence, addiction, and shame, the lives of grandchildren hang in the balance and heartbreaking choices must be made.
Kelly lives in Denver, Colorado in the sunshine of the spirit.
