About Me

My background

Hi! I'm Kathleen Ambro, an author who started out writing several articles for To Life and L.A. Parent magazines, and wrote a weekly column for a local Southern California newspaper Valley Life. I'm a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. I now have three children's books published and about to publish an adult biographical novel. I live in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California with my husband, John and our dog Taffy (a havanese/bichon). 

My writing roots

I got started writing when my fifth grade teacher would give us a theme every Friday and we would have to write a short story to be read the following Monday. At first we all hated the idea, but soon it became a challenge to see who would come up with the best story. I've had fun writing ever since.

My style

I find writing at night after dinner, when all the busyness of the day is behind me, is the best time for me. Sometimes I stay up until one or two in the morning. I usually start writing in longhand outlining the story, then I switch over to my laptop.
