I’m a writer of Lithuanian descent and love putting my own spin on legends as well as creating new tales.

My background is in education, working with inner-city students. In my leisure time, I enjoy books, movies, games–NYT crossword puzzles are my daily brain food–and relaxing with my partner in the serenity of our garden, a Certified Wildlife Habitat.

I love accordions and own a vintage Delarosa from Italy, where I once spent a frigid December in an unheated garret. It may have been cold, but Christmas in Rome was an absolute delight!

  1. Kathryn,
    I was so excited to read about your award in our AAUW Feather Vane.
    And you’re a member?! I’d love to connect with you in person (or online) and I’d so like to read your work. Is there any way I can purchase your book–other than through Amazon? (I canceled my Amazon account last year–too many problems). For some reason, I have this eerie feeling that we’ve actually met before. Do you use a pen name? Please–get back to me when you have a minute.
    And again–congratulations!

    1. Hi Barbara,

      Sorry for taking so long to respond. I’ve been remiss about checking my website.

      Thank you for your kind words. Yes, we’ve met, years ago. I haven’t attended any meetings since COVID.

      Sorry, but the book is only available on Amazon. Maybe you have a friend who could order it for you?

      Since I don’t check this site as much as I should, you can always contact me at the email address in the 2021-2022 AAUW Roster. (I don’t want to list it here and invite spam. I get enough of it as is.)

      Thanks again and take care.
