About Kathleen

Kathleen Ferrari has been making up stories since she was a little girl. Her father was so sure that she would become a writer that he built her a playhouse where she could write her stories.

MacCulloughs Women, the first book in a series set in the fictional city of Lynton, New Hampshire, was published in 2011. Francesca’s Foundlings was published in September 2015.  Her essays have been published in The Boston Globe and in the Northern New England Review.

Her characters have a way of liking the same things that she does like yoga, doll collecting, cashmere sweaters, Irish Brown Bread, Hermes scarves, persnickety cats, spoiled dogs and charming men. Like Franny MacCullough, she is always trying to lose those last ten pounds…

Kathleen lives in New Hampshire with a very charming man, a persnickety striped cat named ABoo, an opinionated Tibetan Terrier called Arleigh and unfortunately, not enough Hermes scarves.
