About Kathleen’s Co-Authors

Kelley McKinnon

Kelley McKinnon, having a short attention span and absolutely no ambition, has had a varied career. She started off in musical theater, including national tours (one with Meatloaf). Luckily she then found John Basil at the American Globe Theater, and acted and directed in both main stage and educational shows. After focusing on directing for eight years, she wandered into an audition for the American Shakespeare Center. And it was fun. So fun that she stayed for four years. After returning to NYC, she taught a class at NYU and fell in love with teaching...and realized she needed letters after her name. So she is back. Kelley McKinnon is an actor/director based out of New York City. In her career she has been lucky enough to work on a large range of styles from Shakespeaare (American Globe Theater and the American Shakespeare Center), caberet (Rosemary and Time, a bistro award winner), regional theater musicals and film. Outrageous Fortune, with Kathleen McClure, is her first published novel.
