I’m Kathryn. I live in Colorado with my husband and two daughters, ages 5 years and 4 months. I’m currently a tutor, writer and stay at home mom, though I spent ten years as an elementary school teacher. I used to write non-genre, but since editors seem more interested in my horror pieces, that’s what I write now. I’m a member of a Writer’s Workshop.
Background: I grew up in Colorado, and then eventually moved to Japan. I taught kindergarten there for three years. I also met my husband there; I brought him back with me. I taught in a Title I (high poverty) school for four years, and very wealthy schools for three. It was a relief to stop; though I love teaching, I love my family more, and the current trends in education leave me cold.
Politically I’m an independent; I believe both major parties suffer an equal amount of idiocy. I’m a Buddhist. I’m interested in religion as a study, but like politics, I rapidly lose patience with any side that claims theirs is the only reasonable view. I have an eating disorder; it is under control, but it does change my worldview.
I love to write, read, travel, cook, sew, garden, play video games and craft.
