The Author

Kathryn Jordan learned early to blend her passions for writing, teaching and adventure. She taught at Cairo American College in Egypt, as well as in Spain and the Philippines, thus fulfilling her dream to see the world not as a tourist but a resident. In Cairo she twice took the speech and debate team to a championship in the Pan Hellenic Forensics League in Greece. Her most recent teaching was at Amistad Continuation High School in Indio, CA where the literary magazine her “at risk” students produced received top awards from the Columbia Scholastic PressAssociation at Columbia University.

Ms. Jordan’s own writing has appeared in such diverse publications as Westways, Palm Springs Life, Ranger Rick, Diver Magazine and a book, A Diver’s Guide To Underwater America. She holds a Masters degree in English from U.C.L.A. and attended Bread Loaf, Squaw Valley and the Santa Fe Writers’ Conference. She gleans early morning hours for her writing, savoring the quiet time that is all hers.

Kathryn Jordan has long felt that the years she spent in Egypt were the experience of her lifetime and material for the novel she always wanted to write, IN THE TIME OF APRICOTS.
