About the Poet:

Kathleen Carlson writes a variety of poetry from serious to humorous, and in a variety of forms from sonnets to doggerel. Her content ranges from earthworms making shameless love on a summer day to the pain of losing one’s child.

Her recent book, Spiritual Reflections and Some Not So, shows the versatility of her writing and her depth of spiritual understanding. She became a Born Again Christian and student of God’s Word in 1975. Her book expresses her experiences and relationship with God as a Father and Friend.

Kathleen started writing poetry at the age of seven and made writing her profession. She earned a BA in English, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee; MS in Journalism, Northwestern University; and an MA in Creative Writing, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. She worked as a technical writer, grant writer and project coordinator for city and county governments in Indiana and Wisconsin, and for a technical college in Wisconsin.

She was born on the island of Aruba, Netherlands Antilles. She and her family immigrated to Wisconsin in 1953. She became a U.S. citizen in 1974. She lives in Palmview, Texas with her husband Vernon and tabby cat Gold Nugget.
