Kathleen McCleary

Kathleen McCleary grew up in Michigan but after living in Oregon for 12 years now considers herself a native Oregonian. She graduated from Williams College with a major in comparative religion. She then went on to law school, where she quickly figured out that she never wanted to be a lawyer and dropped out to become a bartender. She finally found her niche in writing, and has worked as a writer and editor for a variety of newspapers and magazines. Her articles have appeared in The New York Times, More, Martha Stewart Living and Good Housekeeping, among others. She has interviewed Arnold Schwarzenegger, Al Gore, Michael Jordan and Robert Duvall. She is quite short, and as a result of her celebrity interviewing experience she now has a collection of photos of herself with her head in the armpits of famous men. Most recently, Kathy has worked as a barista in an independently owned coffee shop. She currently lives in northern Virginia with her husband and children, who provide endless fodder for her novels, and is looking forward to one day moving back to the Pacific northwest.
