About the Book

Pressure --personal or professional --can yield

precious results. Millie Kelley's first work, A Diamond in

the Rough, proves that a strong, southern, smalltown

writer can create her own gem… Chapter after

chapter, readers will become engaged and intrigued as

the storyline unravels.”

--Elizabeth Wilder, Eyewitness News, WNCT TV,

Greenville, North Carolina

A Diamond in the Rough is a tale of triumph, tragedy,

deceit, and love that spans three generations and two

continents. Journey with the McCartney family from

the rugged hunting grounds of the Colorado mountains,

where one can hear snow melting from the trees,

to the spectacular countryside of South Africa, where

one can hear the elephants tromping over trees.

Their thriving safari business is adventure enough for

Matt, but his sister Jess is seeking more. When she

returns to the States to live out her altruistic ideologies,

however, she becomes entangled in a sinister plot

About the Author

Her interest in writing began in Junior High School when

she contributed to a creative writing book (poetry, short stories,

etc.) that was distributed to other schools in the area.

as Millie nurtures her creative spirit through her writing.

She hopes this is the first of many novels. Enjoy.
