Professional information

Kathy Stinson grew up in Toronto, sorted mail, taught school and waited tables before figuring out, while at home with her two children, that what she really wanted to do was write. In the years since, she has published more than 30 titles – picture books, young adult novels, historical fiction, short stories, biography, and other non-fiction. Mother, stepmother, and grandmother, Kathy currently lives in Rockwood, Ontario with her partner, Peter Carver and their doodle, Georgia.
