About the author

 

image1-3

Born in Ireland 1950, I left home in 1966 to go to sea for fourteen years and then transferred to the oil and gas industry. The past 32 years has led me to onshore and offshore energy installations all over the world, UK waters, Middle East and the South China seas. I am happily married with two children, now grown up and both working in the oil and gas industry. Apart from being an author, my interests run to Rugby as an amateur player over 27 years, flying, sailing and writing. For the past 11 years my wife and I have been living on our sailing yacht ‘Grey Glider’ in the Mediterranean travelling through Spain, Italy, Greece and Turkey where the yacht is now based. At one point I owned a six seat twin engine plane and qualified as a multi-engine pilot and qualified to fly on instruments. I took up writing after being less than impressed and frankly disappointed with books bought in airports. I like to include some humour in my writing and prefer adventure thriller story lines. My work and my travels have provided wide and varied access to some remarkable and interesting places and situations. This has been one of the main sources for the ideas in my writing.

More widely known as ‘Ned Kelly’ after the famous Australian bush ranger.

  1. Hi William,
    No dissecting him with a letter opener so far, but thank you for your comment. I really appreciate it. Though I´ll be my secret if it is 100% true, 100% fiction or 50/50.

    Cheers, Frances

  2. Does your website have a contact page? I’m having a tough time locating it but, I’d like to send you an
    e-mail. I’ve got some ideas for your blog
    you might be interested in hearing. Either way,
    great blog and I look forward to seeing it develop over time.

    1. There is a contact page in the about.me section of ‘About the author’. At least there was the last time I looked. If not it will be restored shortly.

  3. First of all I would like to say superb blog!
    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear
    your head before writing. I’ve had a tough time
    clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.

    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to
    15 minutes are generally lost simply just
    trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or
    hints? Kudos!

    1. I think you are lucky to start within 10 to 15 minutes! I live on a sailing boat and enjoy sitting looking out over the water and other boats for hours on end. My mind will cover a lot of ground in that time, ideas will be stored or discarded before I launch into writing but when I do start I keep going to over 3000 words in less than a day.
      Writing is personal thing and no matter how long it takes the joy is in the satisfaction you feel with a finished article or portion of a book. Thank you for your kind words.

  4. Hello! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after looking at a few of the articles I realized

  5. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism
    or copyright violation? My website has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored myself
    or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization.
    Do you know any solutions to help protect against
    content from being stolen? I’d really appreciate it.

  8. I write a leave a response when I especially enjoy a post on a site or if
    I have something to add to the discussion. Usually it is a result of
    the passion communicated in the article I looked at. And on this post About the author
    | William V Kelly Writer | William V Kelly Writer.

    I was moved enough to drop a thought 🙂 I do have a couple of questions for you
    if it’s allright. Could it be simply me or do
    some of the responses come across as if they are written by brain dead
    folks? 😛 And, if you are posting on other places, I’d like
    to keep up with you. Would you list every one of your social pages like your twitter feed,
    Facebook page or linkedin profile?

    You understand so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I personally will need to…HaHa).
    You definitely put a brand new spin on a subject that’s been discussed for ages.

    Great stuff, just great!

  10. The theme is a standard one from WordPress.org. The site is not free but you have some latitude to personalize it. The SEO plug-ins mean a much wider target audience directed to the site by Google etc.

  11. Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m
    having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    Here is my web-site … fastest way lose weight

    1. No problem, this is a wordpress.org site hosted by justhost the theme is 2013 but it is a paid web host.

      There has been some personalization by me.

  12. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it
    seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just
    posting videos to your site when you could be
    giving us something informative to read?

  13. Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Safari.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser
    compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.

    The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem
    resolved soon. Many thanks
