For my twentieth birthday, my grandmother, Eleanor Robinson, gave me a volume of Emily Dickinson poetry, THE COMPLETE POEMS OF EMILY DICKINSON. In the front of it, she wrote, “E.D. is a revered poet. Perhaps one day, the same will be said of K.H. Happy Birthday, Gramma Eleanor.”
When Kathryn Fitzmaurice was thirteen years old, her mother sent her to New York City over the summer to visit her grandmother, who was a science fiction author. After seeing how her grandmother could make the characters in her books into whomever she wanted, Kathryn decided that she, too, wanted to become a writer someday. Years later, after teaching elementary school, and taking many classes, she now writes full time and lives with her husband, two sons, and her dog, Holly, in Monarch Beach, California. Kathryn is the author of THE YEAR THE SWALLOWS CAME EARLY, A DIAMOND IN THE DESERT, and DESTINY, REWRITTEN.
