Kelley Dietsch Smith Kelley Dietsch Smith lives in Maryland where she is a wife, a mom, and an elementary school teacher who loves stories. For many years, she voraciously read other people's stories while a yearning to tell her own kept growing. It finally spilled out into a memoir about the single year of her life, over 30 years ago, that set the stage for all the years since.
"Jim, the books we purchased are quite worn now. Our boys really like them. They were impressed that we "actually" knew you. I will gladly review your new book....is it okay if I read it to the boys? Again, thanks for writing the books. Our older boys have ADHD and learning disabilities and your books kept their attention."
