ABOUT KITTY O’MEARA
Kitty O’Meara lives near Madison, Wisconsin, with her husband, their five rescue dogs, two cats, gardens, and books. A former teacher of middle school writing and literature and a hospital and hospice chaplain and currently a spiritual director, O’Meara has been a lifelong writer and artist. She has been called “the poet laureate of the pandemic” based on her wildly popular, widely circulated, and hopeful poem about the coronavirus pandemic. That poem is illustrated and presented in book form in And the People Stayed Home, her first print book, published by Tra Publishing. The much-anticipated follow-up, The Rare, Tiny Flower, was published in spring 2022.
