Kathy Simpson Sheppard was born in Boston, Massachusetts.  She is
presently living in South Carolina where she and John, her husband,
spent most of their married life.

Kathy and John Sheppard were married for thirty-three years
. How could
thirty-three years come to an end so abruptly–with no chance to say good-

No longer Mrs. John Sheppard, Kathy began struggling to discover who
she was.  Through the difficult process of grieving, she has gained inner
strength, self-reliance, and appreciation for what really matters in life.

Kathy is a new writer.  During the year of her husband’s death, her
mother, and her brother also died.  Kathy is using her pain to affect others
in a positive way.  

Kathy works with local support groups, individuals, and speaks locally and
regionally to inspire and renew those in grief.

Kathy and John have one son, John “Paul” Sheppard, Jr.  In 1999 Paul
married his sweetheart of six years, Paige.  Kathy is the proud “Tassie” of
two wonderful grandbabies – Carson Channing Sheppard and John Paul
Sheppard, III, affectionately called John.
