There's An App For That
(Paddy Kelly)

STORY DESCRIPTION

From the author of the political, historical novels Operation Underworld, The American Way and The Wolves of Calabria comes a tongue-in-cheek look, punctuated with serious overtones, at some of the main events of the past which have strained, shaped and directed the course of Western culture of the Sixties and Seventies.

This collection of short stories and essays takes a private and personal POV at various events which, although experienced by the author, have affected tens of thousands. Stories of events meant to shed light on the grass roots effects of organized crime, the industrial collapse of the U.S. and the long range effects of America quitting the Space Race. Events which have two things in common; they were all bad for the people and all politically motivated.

Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.
- Voltaire

Author information:


Paddy Kelly, Dublin
Paddy Kelly immigrated to New York City in 1966 where he worked a number of jobs, finished secondary school and in 1971 attended the City University of New York on an athletic scholarship for gymnastics. It was here that he was first introduced to theatre and first became interested in writing.

In 1972 he was employed to coach the Icelandic National Olympic team, a post held for two years.

While in Reykjavik, Iceland he helped in the rescue efforts of Vestmannaeyiar Island following the eruption of the Heimaey volcano.

In 1973 he became a Hospital Corpsman in the U. S. Navy and, in 1975, assisted in the evacuation of Saigon and the resettlement of tens of thousands of Vietnamese refugees to Westminster, Orange County where he was first exposed to the world of film making, and later worked as a set carpenter.

Following naval service in 1976 Mr. Kelly returned to City University New York earning a B. A. While at C.U.N.Y. he became involved in drama and subsequently acted in over a dozen plays in and around the New York area, again gaining work as a set carpenter and sign writer on films.

Upon returning to California in 1982 Paddy further developed his interest in writing when he found employment as a script editor.

It was during this period that Mr. Kelly wrote his first novel, Politically Erect, (unpublished), a satire of the last days of the war in Viet Nam and the fall of Saigon. Mr. Kelly returned to the East coast and worked his way through graduate school earning his M.Ed. at Boston. He began writing plays and moved into writing and directing full time, focusing on farce, satirical and political comedy.

Mr. Kelly has to date directed two dozen professional theatrical productions, written half a dozen feature film scripts and is a regular contributor to various film industry publications.

He has just finished his third novel, The American Way.

In the course of his career Mr. Kelly has also written and directed a cookery television programme and teaches cookery classes as an aid to reducing stress in your life.
