Kelly first sketched this speculative fiction after a 1997 spinal cord injury left him paralyzed below the shoulders, an injury that stemmed from his hard-headed refusal to face his factual circumstances.
Kelly's subsequent exposure to national [biotech] policy-making opened his eyes to the disturbing implications of a scientifically proven aspect of our psyches--the human ability to rationalize actions and beliefs regardless of facts and regardless of I.Q., worldview, academic training, or profession. He returned to "The Sibyl Reborn" determined to pen an entertaining novel that reveals the disastrous potentials this tendency can unleash, especially concerning energy and the environment.
Formerly a contributing writer to National Review Online, Human Events, The Seoul Times, Celebrate Life, and Paraplegia News, Kelly supports 350.org and opposes fracking while writing the sequel to "The Sibyl Reborn." Along with Selene, his wife of twenty-eight years, he lives in Colorado at the foot of Pikes Peak.
