About the Author
Kathleen Koch is an adolescent psychiatric registered nurse, a mother of three boys, and a wife of twenty-four years. She loves being a nurse and helping adolescents develop new skills to help them move forward in their lives in hopes of bringing them out of the darkness. Her journey to publish a book started in high school when she began writing poems to put her feelings on paper and thereby stepping out of her own darkness. As she got older, Koch started wanting to share the poems with those who may have some darkness of their own. In and Out of the Darkness is the result.
