About Kathryn

Kathryn Crowley has been a primary school teacher for over 30 years. Originally from Killarney, Co. Kerry, she has lived in Dublin for over three decades, having previously also lived in Boston.

She played basketball with Pegasus until "well past her prime" and when she realised that she was never going to make it as a golfer (despite the encouragement from her friends in Ballinascorney GC) she took to creative writing in her spare time.

This passion, now devours her every spare moment and she loves to write short stories and memoir pieces.

In 2010 she had a true Irish short story, The Liar, published in A Pint and a Haircut by Londubh Books.

Sweaters and Small Stuff (2014) was her first published collection of short stories. Kathryn is married to Séan and has two grown-up children, Eoin and Sinéad.
