Dr. Kathleen Cook (K. C.) Pyatt grew up on a farm in upper east Tennessee. She taught business at Lincoln Memorial University for two years before moving to Oak Ridge, Tennessee at he age of 24 to accept employment with the Department of Energy.
She met her future husband, Bruce, outside her office door after being in Oak Ridge four years. They have been married since 1988.

The Pyatts met their beloved Rebekah just as her first book reveals. Rebekah had been abused and abandoned with a large rubberband around her tail near the end of her spine. Veterinarians questioned the outcome of the surgery to remove Rebekah's entire tail. She recovered with no problems always amazing everyone that met her.

Pyatt suffered an accident which required numerous surgeries on her legs. While recovering, Kathleen completed a Master of Education degree from Carson Newman College. She later earned a doctoral degree in Christian Counseling from Andersonville Theological Seminary. She currently counsels on a private and limited basis.

Pyatt uses her writing to touch on issues young people are facing in today's society. She expresses her Christian conservative view on these issues always using the Bible as a reference and source for her opinions. In each book, Biblical stories are explained and related to events in today's world.

In maintaining her writing style, Pyatt combines fiction with nonfiction always stressing the importance of having God in our lives.

Her husband, Bruce, has drawn the illustrations in all the books.
