Mary Kathleen Glavich is a Sister of Notre Dame who lives in Cleveland, Ohio. She has taught every grade from first to twelfth and has been vocation director for her community and for the Cleveland Diocese. When her first article was published, the writing bug bit her and she is now a full-time author and editor. In response to that first article, a bishop in Nigeria sent Sister an airmail letter in which he quoted Mother Teresa: "Write, for if your writing should make anyone more aware of God and their neighbour, then you must write." With that encouragement, Sister went on to have over seventy books published as well as more articles, especially as a columnist for Religion Teacher’s Journal. She has also worked on five religion textbook series for both elementary and high school levels. Several of her books have won awards. In addition to writing, Sister Kathleen gives courses, talks, and retreats. For three years she was the featured speaker at catechetical conferences in the United Arab Emirates and Oman. She is also a pastoral associate at St. Dominic. In her spare time, Sister enjoys reading a good book, playing the piano, and crocheting baby blankets to sell at her community’s annual fall boutique.
