Kathi Morris is the oldest of the ten Morris orphans and currently lives in Clovis, California. This memoir was a finalist in the 2019 San Francisco Writers Conference. She won grand prize at the iconic Sardine Factory in Monterey, California, where the movie Play Misty for Me was filmed, for her written tribute on their fiftieth anniversary commemoration. After a thirty-five-year career with the IRS, surviving divorce and ovarian cancer, she retired and worked for Pebble Beach Resorts. Her greatest joys are her children and grandchildren, and her dream is to own a home in Monterey Bay.
