aka Kathi Denn

The Name:   KatieMae is the endearing nickname my Dad gave me when I was a kid.  It has stuck with me over the years and one that I decided to use for my pen name as a writer.

The Person:  I am a retired Navy wife, a mom of 4 children, and a grandma to 6 grandchildren.  I have been married to the love of my life for 36 years.  I have always been passionate about people.  I love watching people and try at least once a day to make a positive impact in someone’s life.  Whether it be a smile as I walk by a stranger or an encouraging note mailed to someone who is going through a rough patch.  I am an encourager and a believer that people can do anything they set their minds to regardless what this world may throw at them.  Sometimes there will be roadblocks and detours, but it’s important to press on and continue towards our dreams.

The Writer:  I remember my first published work.  I was in 4th grade, and one of my short stories was published in the school newspaper.  From there a hunger and desire were born inside me to write.   Over the years I have written poems, short stories, letters to my children, (which they will get once I am gone from this world), a children’s book and am currently working on a fiction piece. I have hidden my passion from the public all these years, but now is the time to begin to share what I have been told by many, that I need to write and share my words with the world.

The Site:  And so, because of the name, the person and the writer this site is here.  It is my hope that you find something to encourage you in your day, so you can be an encourager to others you come across.  We never know when one kind act or one word of encouragement could change someone’s life forever.
