Born and raised in a small town in Washington State, Kathleen began writing in 2011, at the age of 64. She has raised two children alone and is the grandmother of two young adults. She worked for the Postal Service for 30 years. Whatever creative abilities she harboured were held back until she retired. Mostly, she contributed to a Word Press poetry site called DVersePoets. People from all over the world contribute, share and critique each other’s work weekly. Her muse, stifled by politics and the pandemic, is returning hence her eagerness to write for this anthology.
