In April 2015, Kelley published her first book, True and Constant Friends. In the book, Kelley celebrates the inspiration, guidance and love we receive from the women in our lives through essays about her lifelong friendships, her mother, and her grandmother, who immigrated to America from Ireland in 1929. With each relationship crossing different generations and cultures, Kelley explores universal themes of hardship, determination, commitment, family, optimism and love to illuminate the power of the female bond that enriches all of our lives.
In this beautifully illustrated book, Kelley’s uplifting stories are interwoven with classic poetry and beloved literary quotes along with photography and original paintings.
