A licensed pilot in airplanes and gliders and a former flight instructor, Kathleen Winters first impressed critics with her work, ANNE MORROW LINDBERGH: FIRST LADY OF THE AIR. The book was voted Best Aviation Writing in 2008 by the Minnesota Aviation Hall of Fame. Her second book, AMELIA EARHART: THE TURBULENT LIFE OF AN AMERICAN ICON also earned rave reviews.
Sadly, Kathleen passed away in August 2010, after a brief illness. She did not see the publication of AMELIA EARHEART, but it will surely stand as a proud literary accomplishment.
