Kathryn McCullough is an author and artist who lives in Cuenca, Ecuador. A practicing memoirist, Kathryn blogs for the Huffington Post and has taught college writing for more than three decades. She believes that participating in the creative process is a redemptive act that transforms memory into text and self into story.
Kathryn is writing a memoir about her childhood and the parents who made that past possible: her father, a bookie for the mob and her mother, a born-again fashionista, who taught her children the values of sartorial conservatism, while herself wearing leather pants and a feather boa. The memoir is called 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.
