About Me

Kathy Nickerson

Kathy Nickerson writes from her home in rural Missouri, where she lives with her husband of more than forty years. They are the parents of four children who grew up to become their best friends and who have given them fourteen grandchildren, so far.

Kathy’s articles have appeared in several magazines and her books are available online and in local bookstores.
