About Kathy

I'm Kathy Guyton, and I am in the process of uploading my book on state names to my website:  http://www.mountainstormpress.com

If you would like to help with this and other projects, become a patron, and Thank You!

About the book:

Do you know how each of the American states was named?  And I don't mean just "what the word means" or "which river has the same name."  I mean HOW, WHY, WHEN, WHERE, and WHO got to decide?  Well, I wondered about that several years ago, and went looking for the book that would tell me.  After searching the internet and all of my local libraries, I came to the conclusion that the book didn't exist.  So I wrote it.  The result was "State Names:  The Stories of How Our States Were Named,"  and I'm working on uploading it to the internet.

I have other projects in mind, like videos (about state names and other topics), and some other writing.  So, I hope you come along for the ride.  And thank you.
