M Kathy Brown began her first journal at age nine, moving into poetry and personal essays over the next few years. Her love of the English language seemed to take a back seat when she went to business school, and later chose the path of an associate's degree in Theology.
After traveling/living in 39 states including Alaska, and even hitchhiking half way across Canada in the ‘70’s, Kathy passionately embraces the challenges of life, confronting fear and despising hypocrisy in both herself and others.
“I write with the belief to both inspire and challenge the human experience, welcoming criticism, for there is no person on earth who fails to intrigue me, and thereby touches my soul in some significant way.”
Only recently has she come back to writing on a more regular basis to help bridge the need to connect with the outside/real world while caring for her invalid mother in her own home in Fort Collins CO…along with her husband, his mother and 2 dogs.
Through the years the greatest influences have been the poetry of Robert Frost, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and Edgar Guest, the diverse writings of Rudyard Kipling, the essays of Emerson and John Burroughs, Thornton Wilder's The Skin of Our Teeth, the philosophical writings of Henry David Thoreau, and the Greek language of the Bible.
