About Kathleen Grissom

Born Kathleen Doepker, I grew up in the hamlet of Annaheim, Saskatchewan, on the plains of Canada. As a child, I was fortunate to have parents who were open to other religions and cultures, despite living in a small, tight-knit Roman Catholic community. Our household couldn’t afford television, so books were my windows to the world.

As soon as Sister Colette, my first grade teacher, introduced me to Dick, Jane, and Sally, I began to read independently. I was a fanciful child influenced by books to the point where I ate cold boiled potatoes while reading Five Little Peppers And How They Grew (the truth is that this lasted only for a day) as I went through their trials. I was convinced that I was adopted after reading Anne Of Green Gables until my mother told me to look in the mirror and stop the foolishness. I had her nose. She was right. As I limped desperately through Red Shoes For Nancy, my sister, Judy, told me to stop, people may think I’m injured. When I walked with closed eyes, I whack my head on a doorframe at every opportunity to experience Helen Keller’s tribulations closer. After reading Famous Five by Enid Blynton, I was ready to set out on adventures around every corner, and when Rudyard Kipling’s Kim was read aloud in class, I was ready to embark on adventures overseas.
