The wonderful Marilyn Flower wrote this up about me to use at the bottom of my stories. Nice — yes?

She loves to learn and create while nurturing others. She writes non-fiction, fiction, and poetry as a retired therapist and farmer, having fun doing stuff. This amazing lady plants hope and herbs, love and lilacs, blessings and blossoms, stories and seeds all day long. What can she do? It turns out, a lot!!!

Katie Michaelson is a mother, foster mother, adoptive mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, friend, and crazy plant lady. 9x top writer on Medium. Creator/editor of Welcome to My Not-so-Fancy Garden, The Daily Cuppa, The Daily Cuppa Grande. Editor of Seventy and Still Dating and Woodworkers of The World Unite!! I started writing on Medium when I lost my job because of the pandemic.

As I write stories I remember things I’ve forgotten I’d done and skills I took for granted.

Can you imagine 42 years of experience self-employed and helping others start small businesses, academic and technical writing, developing programs, supervising master’s level professionals, and mentoring others to find success in their chosen fields?

You can do anything you dream about. And — enjoy the journey.

I’m a retired therapist who specialised in parenting. I write on the edge of verse and prose about plants and people and simple things.
