Like her fictional heroine, Davis, 47, grew up with domestic abuse in the poorest county in the state of Maine. She rose beyond her background to attend the University of Maine and graduate magna cum laude with a BS degree in education. As a single parent, she went on to earn her law degree in 1988 and become an attorney in private practice, as well as an adjunct instructor at the University of Maine. A staunch feminist, Davis has a passion for helping those hurt by inequality, oppression, or abuse. She says, "Success does not mean sitting in the white man's chair by following the same route the white man traveled." Kathryn Davis has written on social equality issues for Maine's largest newspaper, the Portland Press Herald and has published a short story, The Scent of My Mother with GLB Press. Polyester Pride is her first book.
