Colleen Kelly Mellor

Published in Wall Street Journal, Providence Journal (cover stories, features and monthly column), Western North Carolina’s “Mountain Xpress,” Kent County Times, Warwick Beacon and Cranston Herald, I now focus on “heroes”—the soldiers who bravely defend our country…a plucky, cross-country trucker…America’s teachers…society’s caretakers (Alzheimer’s, etc.). My town is hero in my blog “Memories of a Milltown Girl.”  Finally, Rhode Island’s the hero in my most recent book, “Boomerrrang.”  In an age of negativity, I write of the positive, with (often) a healthy dose of humor.
