• Daily Anne Rice

    Less to do with actual Anne Rice and more to do with challenging myself to write more while luxuriating in the knowledge that Anne Rice exists.

    Meet Kelly McClure, (AKA not Anne Rice)

    I've been writing for a really long time.

    I've been a professional writer since the 90s but I can trace the origin of all this back to the 80s when I read ‎C.S. Lewis' Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe for the first time and felt both my imagination, and my weirdness come to life. See, they start you out with magic portals in the closet and then before you know it you're working for Vice and fighting with Jane Pratt on Twitter. I've written for a lot of publications (VICE, Bust, Chicago Reader, Maxim, GQ, Cosmo, Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, Consequence of Sound, NY Post) but if asked on my death bed what my greatest achievement was, nothing will top being served a cease and desist letter from Ryan Gosling. This is my journey.
