Kathleen Wickman was born in Norway, Michigan. Her love of the written word began at an early age when she entered a poetry contest through her local school and won publication. From there, her love grew to short stories and descriptive papers.
Kathleen first visited Paulding Light as a teenager. An eighty-mile journey it was from her hometown to Watersmeet, Michigan where the infamous “ghost” light can be seen at night, year round. Upon arriving at the guardrail where many onlookers gather, the most brilliant white light flooded the vehicle, leaving Kathleen and her friends stunned. Within seconds, it vanished. The most confounding thing about the Light was that those standing near the guardrail had not witnessed anything at all. In a way, the Light was an illusion. Young and old gather year round because there is indeed something peculiar and mesmerizing about this phenomenon that is said to grace these parts for over one hundred years.
In her many trips to see the Light over the years, she has spoken with onlookers who have traveled from all over the country to witness Paulding Light and its mysteries. Paulding Light was featured in an episode of Unsolved Mysteries as well as Ripley’s Believe It or Not.
Kathleen resides in Iron Mountain, Michigan with her beloved dog Buckley.
