Kelly Marshall: The Traveling Photographer

Tombstone’s famous O.K. Coral where Wyatt Earp and Doc Holiday fought their legendary gun battle.

I always knew communication would dominate my life.

She’s an author.

She’s a photographer.

She writes of her latest traveling adventure: “A quick jaunt to Tombstone proved to be a gem. I love the Tombstone tale.”

The gunfight at the O.K. Corral was a 30-second shootout. Lawmen Wyatt, Virgil, and Morgan Earp, as well as Doc Holladay, battled members of a loosely organized group of outlaws called the Cowboys, including Ike Clanton. The first gunshot exploded at about 3 p.m. on Wednesday, October 26, 1881, in Tombstone, Arizona Territory

Boothill is a small graveyard of at least 250 interments located in Tombstone. The old cemetery was used after 1883 only to bury outlaws and a few others. “Boot Hill” refers to the number of men who died with their boots on.

As Kelly says: “I thought it would be as a writer, and I hoped to pen best-selling novels.

“But life took a left turn and instead, I ended up at a broadcasting school In Colorado, then spent the next thirty years playing music, interviewing interesting people, and doing love song dedications.

“Although the experience was intense, it didn’t seem like work at all. I had a ball.

“After thirty years, I walked away from the microphone and decided to follow my first love…writing.”
