Mary Louise Kelly spent two decades traveling the world as a reporter for NPR and the BBC. Her assignments have taken her from the Khyber Pass to mosques in Hamburg, and from grimy Belfast bars to the ruined deserts of Iraq. As NPR’s intelligence correspondent, she reported on wars, terrorism, and rising nuclear powers. Kelly grew up in Georgia, and her first job was working as a political reporter at The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Educated at Harvard University and at Cambridge University in England, she lives in Washington, DC, with her husband and their two children.
