Born in 1944 in rural New Albany, Indiana, (Margaret) Kathleen McCutcheon was the second youngest of seven children living on a small farm near Louisville, Kentucky.
Kathleen McConnell, as she is now known, has extensive experience in the clerical and administrative arts, and is a Certified Professional Secretary. She loves the excitement of being part of the business world, and has served as an executive secretary to three different presidents or general managers of large corporations.
For as long as she can remember she has believed that there are many things that cannot be seen or explained. But only since the experience written about in Don't Call Them Ghosts has she believed in spirits. McConnell is quick to point out that there is a distinct difference between a spirit and a ghost.
In 1971, the author and her family moved into the historic home known as the Fontaine Manse. As depicted in the book, she and her family lived in this house for five years and their extraordinary experience forever changed McConnell's life.
Today Kathleen McConnell lives in Louisville with her husband, George, and their five children.
