KatieMae is the endearing nickname given to Kathi Denn when she was a child. She is a retired Navy wife, a mom of 4, and a grandma to 7 and recently celebrated 38 years of marriage to the love of her life. From an early age, KatieMae has loved reading, but the desire to write surfaced when she was in fourth grade and had a short story published in the school paper. It was then she felt a dream awaken. Over the years, she has continued to write poetry, short stories and words of encouragement to friends and strangers, but most of her writings stayed hidden in her desk drawer. In 2015, she began to share words of encouragement in the blogging world publicly. KatieMae strives to make a positive impact in someone’s life each day and believes that everyone can turn their dreams into reality if they work hard enough, have a little patience and believe. Birthday Balloons for Grandpa is her first published children’s book, but as she now works through the files in her desk, we can assuredly say it will not be her last.
Birthday Balloons for Grandpa is now available in eBook and paperback versions and can be purchased on Amazon.
