Kathy Steinemann, Grandma Birdie to her grandkids, lives in the foothills on the Alberta side of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. She has loved writing for as long as she can remember. As a young child, she scribbled poems and stories. During the progression of her love affair with words, she won public-speaking and writing awards, and she contributed to her school newspaper. Then every Monday, rain or shine, she walked home instead of taking the bus so that she could deliver her latest column to the community weekly. Her career has taken varying directions, including positions as editor of a small-town paper, computer-network administrator, and webmaster. She has also worked on projects in commercial art and cartooning. Her books include "Suppose", "IBS-IBD Fiber Charts", "Top Tips for Packing Your Suitcase", the "Sapphire Brigade" series, and several others.
