LANL PROJECT MANAGER TALKS FIRST NOVEL 3 PM SUNDAY, APRIL 23, AT PAGE ONE
Laura Kelly, project manager at Los Alamos National Laboratory and fitness instructor, is rescheduled to be at Page One Books 3:00 pm Sunday, April 23, to talk about and sign her first novel, "Splintered Reflections."
The book is described as such: "Shattered with the disturbing loss of both her parents, Cathy struggles with her identity asking every morning as she looks in the mirror Who Am I? Riddled with guilt and plagued by the issues left unresolved with her mother's disappearance, she reluctantly pushes outside the box she has created for herself. Rescued from her isolation by a new friend named Jane, Cathy begins to break free of her shell through Jane's insistence that the world's adventures are to be embraced. Further, challenged by a demanding, creative writing Professor, Cathy discovers the cathartic effects of writing as she pours her thoughts and feelings onto paper, transforming not only the blank piece of paper but also herself. As if emerging from a fog, Cathy's recovered memories enable her to look within and begin to piece together the shards of her shattered life. Through her small network of friends and mentors, her self-doubt slips away as her confidence begins to grow, and she discovers that the answers she seeks lie within."
Kelly has worked full time at Los Alamos National Laboratory for more than 26 years and part time as a fitness instructor at the local YMCA for more than 20 years. During her free time, she volunteers at the local art center and the animal shelter. Her favorite activities include skiing, playing golf, and the occasional athletic event. She loves cooking and her ultimate dream is to be a sous chef for Bobby Flay. She has always wanted to be a writer, and future books will range from fictional books revolving around romance and relationships as well as her adventures in online dating and trying to find the one. Kelly lives in Los Alamos with her husband, Dave, and they are looking forward to many years filled with happiness and adventures.
Page One Books is located at 5850 Eubank Blvd NE, Suite B-41, in Albuquerque's Mountain Run Shopping Center (southeast corner of Eubank and Juan Tabo). The Kelly event is free and open to the public. For more information, please call 294-2026 or visit www.page1book.com.
