About Kathy Nickerson

My Story

I enjoy life with my handsome husband in the rural Midwest. He is a country doctor and part-time court bailiff. I managed his office for more than a dozen years, which was a delightful season. Now, I do my best to keep life and love going strong in our home while also spending time with family, friends, and our local church.

Someone asked me once how I managed to write magazine articles, newspaper columns, and entire novels in the middle of our busy lives. The answer was simple: “I don’t bake cookies.”

Or anything else, for that matter. I don’t have a garden, and I don’t play golf. I have no idea how to knit. Writing started out as my hobby when our children were small. Then, in 1987 Mother Earth News paid real money for my first article, and the hobby became something more.

Whether I’m writing an article for a national magazine, a column for the county paper, or a novel about the Glory Circle Sisters I have the same goal: to tell simple stories about real life, because we are all trying to figure it out.

I love finding the silver linings in our cloudy world. And, I am eager to help people find their place in the Greatest Story Ever Told. If you want to learn more, just ask questions on my blog, shoot me an email, or chat with me on Facebook or Twitter.
