INFORMATION
Mrs. KT has devoted her entire professional life to teaching students of all ages to read and write. She is the author of the book, "At The Water's Edge," a collection of poems and short stories. She spent over a decade teaching college and graduate students the process and joy of writing. She and her husband have been joyfully married for forty years, living in a beautiful resort town in northern Michigan, and are the parents of two amazing and dearly loved adult children.

After nearly thirty-eight years of teaching the art and craft of writing, she retired from the teaching profession in June of 2016.

As the English poet William Blake wrote: "A bird does not sing because he has an answer; he sings because he has a song."

Mrs. KT wishes to thank Fanstory for allowing her the opportunity to "sing her song."

    So appreciative of your warm and kind congratulations.
    As an aside, this past week, as I was making my way out of our neighborhood, I witnessed an eagle swoop down upon a crow, grapple with it, and make off with it into the woods...
    More than a bit unsettling and magnificent at the same time...
    Thank you again!
