About the Artist
Katy's weekly column in the Maine Sunday Telegram (1980) enhanced her interest in the written word. The interest has never waned.
After two years as a volunteer in the US Peace Corps, she knew she needed a "deadline", something to occupy her days. She began writing short stories and finally decided to self-publish what she deemed the best of the lot. To date she has not stopped.
Maine stories abound-stories for both adults and children. Having lived more than eight decades, there are many she remembers. It is this collection of Maine tales she wants to share with local people as well as those "from away". The newcomer may sense some of the color, the history and the ideologies of Maine people.
Writing for the pleasure of others coincides with a lifetime desire to making good things, positive things happen. If you want to share with others and do not want to write it yourself, contact Katy.
