    Kelly Lytle was born on opening day of the 1982 NFL season in Denver, where his father Rob was a running back for the Broncos. Before turning to writing, he had worked on Wall Street for three years and spent time as a salary cap analyst in the NFL. He recently wrote the memoir To Dad: From Kelly about his relationship with his late father. He says, "The process of writing my first book showed me that many of the seemingly small decisions I've made combined to cause profound, positive changes in my life and help me overcome the grief of losing my dad."
