Kathi Linz

Kathi Linz's first memory is that of leaning against her mother listening to her read a story. After acquiring a brother and two sisters, Kathi helped entertain the younger ones by making up stories. In due time, Kathi became a teacher. Her students provided inspiration for many stories and the classroom offered oportunities to experiment with nonfiction books for that age level.

Linz eventually married and moved out of Illinois to southern Indiana. There she found work as an information assistant in the local library. The characters in her stories began to age as she spent more time working with adults.

Kathi's family includes her husband, her adopted and much beloved daughter, and usually two foundling dogs at a time. Currently, she has two dogs that look like black labs, but are actually a Jack Russell terrier and a German shepherd in disguise.
