Despite college majors in English and art, Kathleen Fox has never had a job that required her to ask, "Would you like fries with that?" She has, however, worked as a secretary, built computers, and served as executive director of Onsite Training, which offered co-dependency treatment programs. For several years she wrote a column on stepfamilies for The Dallas Morning News, and she has edited and ghost-written numerous self-help books and articles.
Kathleen is the mother of two and stepmother of three adult children, as well as the grandmother of eight (at last count). Her first marriage ended in divorce, and her second marriage ended with the sudden death of her husband in an accident. It's true what they say about experience being such a great teacher. Sometimes, though, the tuition she charges is terribly high.
One of the things Kathleen has learned is the healing power of laughter. She publishes a weekly humor column as well as a weekly column on money management at www.consciousfinance.com. As her kids would be happy to tell you, she was frugal when frugal wasn't cool, and she presents workshops on thrift and wise money management.
