About Bobbie Kinkead

As a child, Bobbie Kinkead created stories: playing at the creek, hunting frogs, and meeting the spirited folks; when walking to her grandmothers; and rocking in a swing on warm Colorado nights. As a teen, Bobbie rode her bike to the library to read every folk and fairy tale possible.
Graduating from Colorado University in Boulder, Bobbie taught first-grade in Anchorage, Alaska, then traveled to San Francisco to marry and teach art in the elementary schools. Moving to Oakland, she ran a home preschool. Stories were important.
While her children attended public school, Bobbie volunteered as Regional Adviser for the Society of Children Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) and editor of galleys for the Bay Area. Needing a rest, through the California University, Bobbie was certified as a Master Gardener. As a professional gardener, Bobbie reconnected with the spirit folks and finished Rhyonna’s Fright.
Attending Dominican University, Bobbie studied storytelling and was asked to be part of the Asian Art Gallery (AAM) Core of Storytelling. Today she participates in the Storytelling Association of California (SAC) telling folktales, legends, fables, and myths. She finished her next novel, Damsels Overcome including twenty-two folktales about women, who used their powers to survive and their empowerment for us in their struggles.
Bobbie confirms, "...all important for writing a good story."
