Kathryn Den Houter PhD
Author Kathryn Den Houter PhD has been writing novels actively since her retirement in 2013, but before that, she wrote an untold number of novels in her head. Her last novel, Abigail’s Exchange, was a winner in the Eric Hoffer writer’s contest and a semi-finalist in the Royal Palm Literary Award. She has often said and steadfastly holds to the maxim that “good stories heal.” Before her writing career, she had two careers that spanned 45 years. She taught in preschool, elementary school, middle school and high school before completing a doctorate in psychology, after which she developed a private practice in Grand Rapids. Her most beloved career was raising four children with her late husband, Len. She and her husband of 10 years, Jim, live near Grand Rapids and enjoy spending winter months in Florida.
