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.
It’s always so great to see the updates via Latitude Living Weekly – you’re doing so many great and helpful projects in Cuenca – and they are filled with color and energy! Too bad I’m in a totally-different sector of the country, though one of these days my trail will take me back to Cuenca! Good luck with the upcoming workshop! Lisa
Hi Kathy It’s so long since I heard from you or sent you anything. I hope you’re both thriving in Cuenca. And what an interesting childhood you must’ve had. Take care. Judith
