Kathleen Parrish lives and writes in Arizona on a two-acre homestead in the
Sonoran Desert. These days she’s a wife, mother, grandmother, and gleefully
retired nuclear engineer. Her first writing project was revising a massive
manuscript written by her late uncle, Herman Willis Logan, at the family’s
request. Second Son, published in 2021 by Touchpoint Press, chronicles the
coming-of-age of Towanna Whitaker, a poor sharecropper’s son, during the
last years of the Great Depression and the hardships of WW2. Kathleen is
currently working on Southern Woman, which continues the story of the
Whitakers into the next chapter of their lives.
