A native of Toronto, Canada, Kathleen McNulty has lived in California since 1987. She received her B.A. in English and history from Western University in London, Ontario, and both her M.A. in English and her M.L.S. from the University of Toronto. Before her three children were born, Kathleen worked in book publishing for many years. In addition to working at Black Pine Circle School (and being the mother of a BPC graduate), she is a longtime librarian at Chabot Elementary School in Oakland. She loves hiking, camping, cycling, baking, attending concerts, reading (of course), eating good chocolate, and spending time at Northern California beaches. Kathleen joined BPC in 2007.
