Over the next four years, Jane and I became friends, I had two children and dozens of rejections. I wrote for magazines and newspapers, doing stories about nature. We talked about getting books published and then critiqued each other's books in progress. The encouragement and support of these famous people kept me from being discouraged by rejections. I've written more than two dozen books here, sitting at my desk overlooking a deep, wild pond. Sometimes now I take my computer up to our log cabin in the woods of Vermont. I write about the things that fascinate me: nature and art and greatness.

Every week I write and illustrate a newspaper article about nature, too.

Earthquake!

In writer's groups, I pass on the same encouragement I got when I was just beginning. I often visit classrooms, where I talk about writing well and the joy of finding a life full of the things you love.


  • Earthquake! : a Story of the San Francisco Earthquake (Once Upon America) by Kathleen V. Kudlinski.
  • Works (19).
  • Ben Chambers and the Fishermans Catch.
  • Billie B Brown: The Night Fright.
  • Ode (Bards of Passion and of Mirth or Ode on the Poets)?

Kudlinski's writing career demonstrates how a professional can earn respect, and a good living, as a children's writer. She is equally at home with historical fiction and science writing and has contributed to two popular series, "Once upon America" and "Girlhood Journeys. In Lone Star: A Story of the Texas Rangers , for instance, eleven-year-old Clay Andrews dreams of becoming a Ranger so that he can hunt down and kill the Indians who murdered his father. As the action unfolds, Clay actually meets some Texas Rangers and eventually learns, to his dismay, that their brand of "justice" is more senseless and brutal than that of the Comanches who made Clay an orphan.

Hero over Here was one of the first "Once upon America" titles. Theodore is too young to go away to Europe to fight in the First World War. Chafing at his lost chances for adventure, he is frightened—and then galvanized—when his mother and sister become deathly ill during the worldwide influenza epidemic of Diane Roback in Publishers Weekly liked the way Kudlinski's descriptions "breathe color and life" into a topic that most students find only in dull history texts.

Other Kudlinski titles dealing with American history include Earthquake! The "Girlhood Journeys" series bears certain similarities to the "American Girl" books made so popular by Pleasant Company. In the case of the "Girlhood Journeys" series, however, the heroines range widely through historical eras and are not necessarily stereo-typical American girls.

Shannon is a nineteenth-century Irish immigrant who is old enough to miss her former home and to make astute observations about her new home, San Francisco. In Shannon: A Chinatown Adventure , Shannon comes to terms with her homesickness by orchestrating the liberation of a young Chinese girl who is enslaved to a local merchant. Julie Shatterly in School Library Journal commended the book for its "suspense" and "likable characters. Even though Shannon is Caucasian, she finds that, because she is Irish, other whites shun her. This brings her closer to her Chinese friends, who are themselves victims of racism.

Joan Zaleski in School Library Journal appreciated the "strong female characters" that Kudlinski has presented in "historically accurate" circumstances. Your use of the site and services is subject to these policies and terms. Series: Once Upon America Series by cover. Series description.
