I’m Kelly Kazek (Kay-zick). My title is Weird News Reporter and humor columnist for AL.com. That means I actually get paid to write about things like World’s Largest roadside attractions, car-part art, Bigfoot, haunted mental asylums and more. Although my AL.com stories are mostly about Alabama, I also write a lot about the South and I’ve visited weird sites across the country. I am also the author of 8 books and have a blog at KellyKazek.com. You can follow me on Twitter at @kellykazek.
I was a single mom for 20 years after my Baby Girl’s father died, and I remarried in October 2016. Sweetums is a 6-foot-7 Bigfoot enthusiast and we had a Weird Road Trip-themed wedding with a roadside attractions cake.
