Author Kathleen Grissom – New York Times Bestseller

Friday, October 20, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Kathleen will be talking about her books  as part of our Friend’s 40th Anniversary Celebration.

Born Kathleen Doepker, I was privileged as a child to be raised in Annaheim, Saskatchewan, a hamlet on the plains of Canada. Although we lived in a small, tightly knit Roman Catholic community, I was fortunate to have parents who encouraged learning about other religions and cultures and books were the windows that expanded my world.

Years later, when my husband and I began restoration of an old plantation home in rural Virginia, I started to research the history of this house and the land that surrounded it. It was then I discovered an old map and there a notation that read ‘Negro Hill.’ To this day I am uncertain why those words captured me so, but I gradually set aside everything else to pursue the research and writing of the story that is now The Kitchen House.

There was one character from The Kitchen House who stayed with me, though. Jamie seemed to insist I tell his story next. The result is my latest work, Glory Over Everything.

Presently I am researching the true life story of Crow Mary, a Native woman who carried a Colt revolver on her studded belt and she wasn’t afraid to use it. I cannot wait to tell you more about her!
