Meet the Author: Kelly Russell
Hi! I’m Kelly and I moved to Chicago about 10 years ago, but I’ve been in love with this city since a little girl. I met my husband here and we live in Lakeview with our two girls, a cat named Gracie and our Mini Aussie, Bella. We love our neighborhood and experiencing everything in Chicago. We’re always trying new restaurants, exploring different neighborhoods, and we spend a lot of our time in our favorite coffee shops.
I wrote “A Girl’s Guide to Chicago” because I love planning days and nights in the city for my friends and family. So, I love to know everything I can about what’s going on in Chicago. I’m always making lists of the newest places to try or the latest things to do.
In all, I wrote this book to share my real story and my real and favorite experiences in Chicago. I hope you enjoy, and use my book to create your own experiences in Chicago.
