Falls. She is also writing a dramedy script concerning local government that takes
place in a fictional midwestern county. While Kelly presently lives in Illinois, she had
resided in downtown Sioux Falls for the past several years, and she is much
appreciative of the emphasis on the arts and local history in the Sioux Falls community.
