Kathleen Givens was born in New York City, but spent her early years living in the Northeast and Georgia before landing in Southern California at the age of ten. As a result, she is fluent in Valley Girl, Steel Magnolia, and Manhattanite.

From an early age, Kathleen was entranced by the history, legends and sagas of the people who mixed together to form Scotland, Ireland, England and later the United States.

And then add a love story, of course.

Kathleen made her writing debut at the age of ten with a rewrite of Little Women, in which Jo marries Lau

“We decide ourselves whether to do right or wrong, whether to be good or evil. For some, it is fear that keeps them within the law, but for others it is a greater sense of good. I do not think any religion can make a person good, or protect a good person from bad happening to him.”
Kathleen Givens

“How does one go on? How does one get up and face another day? Another night in the dark without sleep? I have no answer, nor even a hint of how it is done... those of us who have others depending on us to be strong, to feed and clothe them, to protect them, to lead them, to mother them, we have not the luxury of finding oblivion. And so we rise each day and find a way through the endless hours to put food on the table and clean sheets on the beds, and we wait for the next dawn and do it all again.”
Kathleen Givens
