Formally taught in English and linguistics, from early childhood, Katharine displayed the vivid word artistry necessary for excellence in writing, constantly learning while winning poetry and other writing contests beginning in high school and continuing on as a young adult.
Mentally writing both fact and fiction during a nearly 25-year stint as an educator, she began putting pen to paper in the late 80’s, as a writer for various magazines, capturing adventures, experiences, and insights for her readers, portraying life as she found it.
Often staying up until two a.m. to research and write a series of four high-school literature texts, several self-help studies, and bi-monthly magazine articles, she also has served as a counselor, mentor, and workshop presenter in Arkansas and Mississippi, and serves currently in Arkansas as a state-wide education steering committee member for The Arkansas Education Alliance.
Of course, she still writes.
