Keely Flynn


Keely Flynn is a Chicago playwright, freelance writer, and blogger residing in a fixer-upper that would make The Money Pit blush. She lives with three young children, an extraordinarily tolerant husband, and two cats who just try to make it through the day without being ridden like ponies. An avid fan of mysteries and classic rock trivia, Keely prides herself on the ability to nap on any surface - and she uses hyperbole more than anyone in the entire world.
