Katherine Towers is a retired aerospace engineer who now spends her time writing children’s books. She became inspired to write kid’s books after making up numerous engaging stories for her daughter, who was in preschool at the time. She and her daughter, Marta, spent a lot of time together in the car during very long daily commutes to preschool. On the way, Marta would become restless. So, to help pass the time, Katherine began to make up creative stories and tell them to her. Katherine could see that her once bored daughter was now intrigued, engaged, and actively listening. Marta would even ask questions and suggest alternative endings to the stories. These special story times ultimately created a stronger bond between Katherine and her daughter. Katherine enjoyed creating stories so much that she decided to write them down for other children to enjoy.
