Editorial Reviews

Review

"Delivering inspiration as well as entertainment, The Olive Picker is deserving of a spot on the bookshelf alongside such popular memoirs as The Glass Castle and Running With Scissors." ~ BlueInk STARRED Review

"A refreshing autobiography from a spirited woman. Overall, Brettell demonstrates a cinematic control of her story. This isn't a victim's tale; rather, it's a guide to survival." ~ Kirkus Review

"Some books are simply 'unputdownable' and The Olive Picker is one of them. This book grabs the reader by the scruff and never lets go. The writing is so simple, clean and powerful that one is barely aware of the very act of reading; immersion into the story becomes so total. While one might compare the pacing to such titles as The Girl On The Train, this book has an underlying theme far more powerful than any murder mystery." ~ Judge, 3rd Annual Writer's Digest Self Published eBook Awards

"The Olive Picker: A Memoir by Kathryn Brettell is a great book that will make you believe in strength and courage. This is perfection! 5stars!" ~ Rabia Tanveer, Readers' Favorite

Silver medalist in Family & Relationships category and Bronze medalist in Memoirs ~ 2016 CIPA-EVVY Book Awards.

About the Author

The Olive Picker is Kathryn’s first book. She has previously written Solitaire, a short story that was published in The McGuffin magazine in 2006. Her short stories Hot Lips and Runners were both accepted for online publications in 2005 and 2009 respectively. Kathryn splits her time between India, Singapore, and Colorado, and writes stories about her frequent travels. One of those posts, Naked Guy, was published in her hometown Colorado newspaper, The Mountain Connection, in 2013. Kathryn is very happily married, pursuing her lifelong love of writing, and enjoying life. She hopes, through her writing, to help people who find themselves in situations of abuse, wherever they are in their journey.
