As a child Kathy wanted to be a writer when she grew up. She also wanted to act. After receiving an MFA in Acting and playing the part of starving young artist in New York, she taught theater classes at a small college in the Mid-West before returning home to the East Coast, where over the years, she and her husband raised two kids and an assortment of dogs. During stints in advertising, children’s media publishing, and education reform in the former Soviet Union, she wrote whenever she could. Her love of early American history has its roots in family vacations up and down the East Coast visiting old forts and battlefields and places such as Williamsburg, Mystic Sea Port, and Sturbridge Village. At the same time, she daydreamed in history classes, imagining the everyday people behind all the dates and conflicts and how they lived.
Claiming her best ideas are born of dreams, Kathy has written a number of stories over the years.

Where the River Narrows,

by Kathy Fischer Brown and Ron Crouch

For many Loyalists during the American War for Independence, the perilous journey to Canada was just the beginning of a long and arduous struggle to find a new home and a new life amid the upheavals of war and separation, death and privation. For Elisabeth Van Alen, it also meant finding new strength and the will to survive.


Where the River Narrows is a fictionalized account based on the many stories of brave women and their families who endured the rigors of travel over harsh terrain and years spent in overcrowded camps under an over-burdened provisional government trying desperately to keep up with the ever-growing number of refugees.


By the time the Treaty of Paris ended The American Revolution in 1783, the populations of Quebec, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia had more than tripled in size.
