Kathy Bryson knew she wanted to be a writer by age 12, when she finished reading through her school and local children's libraries. She earned a B.A. in English and a M.S. in Mass Communications and spend 20 years honing her writing skills on marketing brochures, websites, and several unfinished manuscripts. After getting another Master's, this time in Humanities, she went into teaching and took advantage of a more flexible schedule to finish a book with all the stuff she enjoys most - from coffee to love to Shakespeare! Kathy lives in Florida where she caters to the whims of two spoiled cats and wonders what possessed her to put in 75 feet of flower beds.
