Kathryn McCullough is an author and artist who lives in Cuenca, Ecuador. An essayist, she writes for the Huffington Post and has taught college writing for more than three decades. She believes that participating in the creative process can be a redemptive act that transforms memory into text and self into story.
Kathryn is writing a memoir about her childhood. Her father was a bookie for the mob, her mother, a born-again fashionista, who taught her children the supposedly-Christian values of sartorial conservatism, while, herself, wearing leather pants and feather boas. The memoir’s working title is Kids Make the Best Bookies: A Childhood Gambled on God and the Mob.
Kathryn has an MA in English literature. She has lived abroad for nearly a decade.
