Going To Give This A Try


Hopefully there will be more to come than this.


  1. Hey there!

    I'm glad you started this blog--the world needs more DeForest Kelley fans! I'm putting you on my blogroll over at Treasury =)


  2. Count me in too. DeForest Kelley gave us himself in one of the most beloved, iconic characters of all time...Doctor Leonard "Bones" McCoy.

    To start things off, here's a letter from Kris Smith, longtime De fan and his caregiver (and later Carolyn's) during the last years of their lives.

    From Kris Smith:

    DeForest Kelley's Home Still Exists -- in Cyberspace!

    Although the Kelley home was sold and torn down following Carolyn's passing in 2004, the realtors who sold it have kindly left the listing in existence. So if you ever wondered what kind of home the Kelleys had, you'll be surprised to discover how small it was and how un-Hollywood-like.,GGLR:2005-52,GGLR:en%26q%3D15463%2BGreenleaf%2BStreet%252c%2BSherman%2BOaks%252c%2BCalifornia

    When furnished, it was the most comfortable-feeling home I ever walked into. It felt familiar and "like home" the moment you entered.

    I wish it hadn't been razed to make way for a McMansion, but buyers aren't sentimental in the least, in most cases. In fact, they may not even have known whose home they were buying...


    But do enjoy the only tour you will ever have of the home!

    P.S. I'm very much looking forward to finding out what Karl Urban has done with the reel McCoy this time around. I'll be seeing the movie opening weekend (next weekend) and blogging about it (at afterward. I expect good things, based on all I've read, seen and heard.

    P.P.S My newest De Kelley book, the first edition of THE ENDURING LEGACY OF DeFOREST KELLEY: ACTOR, HEALER, FRIEND will be ready in time for the tenth anniversary of De's passing (June 11th, 2009). In fact, except for a final proofreading and deciding on its "carrier" (Payloadz or Clickbank), it's ready NOW! So please help get the word out, and let Trek fans and reporters know that I'm available for phone and magazine interviews and for local or regional (Pacific Northwest) conventions -- and can go even farther if the convention folks can pay my way and will allow me to offer
    25-50 of my earlier De books (DeForest Kelley: A Harvest of Memories) at the conventions after the appearances.
