About Me

Hello! I’m Kathy. Welcome to my online space.

I started writing when I was five, penning stories about UFOs and Ryan, the boy in kindergarten who tormented me and who, in most of the books, wound up in outer space by the ending. I sold the stories for a quarter a piece in our small West Virginia town.

When I was eight, I got a typewriter for Christmas, and I wrote my first novel. It was a huge bestseller, followed by a joke book I cowrote with an elementary school friend. In college, I spent two years majoring in journalism before switching to special education. For the past twenty years, I have worked in writing and education – sometimes simultaneously.

When I’m not writing, I enjoy long distance running, paddle boarding around Florida, traveling, and spending time with my family.
