My name is Kathy Thompson, a converted Texan, from Wisconsin. I have a military background and after I got out, I went back and got my B.S. in Business Communications. To get into the Air Force I had to lose weight, which spurred my deep interest in Health and fitness. I started writing & speaking around the country about Health & personal communications.
Single, I enjoy my life and love the outdoors, swimming, walking, movies, music, and reading faces.
I am a creator! I love to design and create speeches, stories, articles, reports, websites, homes, cities, worlds!
I’ve always been pre-occupied with the future, and write about it. And I discovered I am actually channeling the future when I’m writing. Some of the events in my stories have come true!

Tell us something about yourself.
(giggle)I was born with a pencil in my hand. I can’t remember not writing stories. There was a problem! With my Father (traveling salesman) gone a lot, my Mother was a very dominant force in my life, and she didn’t know what she was doing to me. All she did was discourage my writing. “Don’t get Your Hopes Up”, “Nothing will ever come of it,” “Don’t expect anything from it.” That’s all I ever heard from her. So I hid my writing.
And for a long time I was so depressed and lost. None of the jobs I had were fulfilling. Then I realized who I am, and now love to write. Now I’m sharing my stories with the world. My stories are my legacy!
First I write in shorthand, record it, then type it; narrative, screenplays, stage plays.
Knowing the publishing world today, I decided to self-publish using Amazon.
