Katherine Eddinger Smits grew up in Tarpon Springs, Florida.
Although not from a Greek background, she fell in love with the Greek culture of the town and its close-knit families. She moved away years ago, but still visits Tarpon Springs frequently to see old friends and classmates, walk the beaches, or shop and eat at the Sponge Docks.
She lives with her husband in Homosassa, Florida and Falling Waters, West Virginia. They have a son and daughter-in-law and brand new granddaughter (born July 20, 2015) who live in Chesapeake, Virginia, and a daughter in Alexandria, Virginia. Picture Shrimp Boats.
She started writing stories in grade school and always intended to write novels someday. However, she put off writing fiction while she raised her family and worked as a clinical social worker at four different Veterans Affairs Medical Centers around the country.
About Katherine: Devastated to learn that her first career choice, mermaid, was not realistic, she nevertheless found helping veterans and their families rewarding, and managed to squeeze writing into her life.
Whether it was conducting clinical assessments, creating brochures for social programs, or putting together newsletters for clubs and organizations, she always had some kind of writing project in the works.
