Born Frank Maloney into a tough working class family in the 1950s, the young man gravitated towards the world of boxing, where he became a very well respected boxing promoter and worked with the likes of undisputed heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis and European champion Tony Jeffries. Decades later, Frank decided the time was right to become the person he was always destined to become, and in this enthralling autobiography, recalls in great detail the unique instance where one life ends and one can begin. Packed with wonderful insight and anecdotes about herself and those she knew both inside and outside the world of boxing, " Frankly Kellie "is a story with another dimension a tale of an identity kept hidden for decades and how the overcoming of a deep inner turmoil can propel anyone into a brand-new life.
