Kathy Trapp has been creating stories and narratives her entire life. She has no memory of a time without books, spoken stories, or fantastical mental narratives to the everyday goings on of her life. The first story she ever wrote was an illustrated story of a lion and his friends that she wrote in kindergarten—a treasure she still has, thanks to her mother. It was because of the positive influence of her mother and her amazing elementary educators that Kathy became a lifelong learner. Today, Kathy is an early childhood educator and writes as a hobby.
