About the Author
Kelly Granite Enck is a talented author/filmmaker who has written an engaging memoir, "From Hollywood to God." Kelly sold everything she owned and left her career to discover the presence of God. Her spiritual search took her around the world on the wildest adventure of her life. Lucky for us she journaled her discoveries and was brave enough to share them. Her feature film career spanned 12 years with an emphasis on compositing and producing visual effects. She has worked on 17 of the greatest films of our time, like: Armageddon, Van Helsing, Godzilla, Contact and Fifth Element. Her achievements led her to being employed at the most prestigious visual effects company in the world, Industrial Light & Magic. While her FX shots required 50 layers of pictures to be integrated in order to create the excitement felt by the audience, her writing is a simple layer of truth in life’s greatest adventure, looking for life’s meaning. "From Hollywood to God" is a story about the hope we all have with regards to life and love. Kelly writes with such honesty, humor and feeling that we can all see pieces of our lives in her experiences. Even Kelly’s vagabond childhood adds to her writing. She went to first grade in Africa and High School in Alaska while crossing the globe 12 times in-between. She has lived in exotic places like Azores and Okinawa. She rode an elephant to the Taj Mahal, wild monkeys have run off with her lunch, and she has sailed the Icy Strait in Alaska. One of her highs in life was water and snow skiing in the same day between Alaskan glaciers. Kelly has gazed over the Sahara desert while sitting on the peak of a 5,000-year-old Pyramid. Monks have taught her the Dharma, she has touched Christ's tomb, and a giant Bengal Tiger napped in her lap! All of these exotic adventures are weaved into her memoir, "From Hollywood to God."

I had the good fortune to meet Kelly and her husband David at Starbucks, conversation lead from one thing to another and before I knew it find out Kelly's an author and her husband is not, but a technology guy pursuing his PhD. Neat couple, interesting and magnetic personalities. I suspect upon reading the opening pages before ordering that I'll get 'sucked' into the content. Not sure if I will be more God-like or much will change as a result of reading it, but I bet that I will minimally be entertained and educated.
Good luck Kelly!
I was also a bit disappointed that her journey lead her to some version of Christianity rather than her own internal power. Not a bad read though and an interesting perspective.
I just identified with her and was cheering her growth and what she learned about God. There was never a feeling of "oh I saw that coming" in the book--it was always unexpected, fresh, and honest. I loved her "voice" and I was truly sad when this book ended. But now that I have a 'feel' of who she is....I have a hunch there will be more to come! Here's to finding love and faith!
My first foray into Memoirs was Eat Pray Love and I was late at that. I watched the movie and was so intrigued I had to read the book. Since then I have gotten into reading memoirs, but to find one that is uplifting and exiting, yet still insightful has been quite a task...until now...
All I can say is - 'WOW!’
First let me tell you, I'm a notoriously slow reader, and I usually read 2-3 books at a time (it's my A-ADD). A book truly has to intrigue me and capture my total attention, in order for me to complete it. This book certainly did that! I bought it on Wednesday and was done by Thursday. If I didn't have to go to work on Thursday, I would have continued reading into the night! I was moved, not just by the fantastic adventures, but also by Kelly's honesty and genuineness. Her story was an exciting and uplifting adventure! There so many wonderful twists and turns, and you rooted for her the whole way. I even finished the book feeling hopeful for my own future....What a wonderful read!
