Katie O'Toole has been writing for young audiences since 1980 when she became the writer and host of "What's In The News," a children's current events series seen weekly throughout the school year on more than 70 Public Television stations nationwide. In Katie's tenure as the program's writer and co-producer, "What's In The News" has won every major award for instructional television, and in 1991, it was inducted into the School Television Hall of Fame at Harvard University. The program carries the endorsement of the National Council for the Social Studies and has been honored by the National Education Association.
In pursuit of stories that will engage her viewers, Katie has embarked on many adventures including a dinosaur dig in Montana, astronaut training at Space Camp in Alabama, religious ceremonies at the Pine Ridge Reservation for Native Americans in South Dakota. In August, 1999, she will explore the deep sea volcanoes of the Pacific Ocean when she travels aboard the Alvin, a submersible that became famous for its role in discovering the Titanic. In addition to her assignments on "What's In The News," O'Toole writes and hosts a variety of special programs for Penn State Public Broadcasting, ranging from cooking shows to public affairs and election coverage. She earned a BA degree in Journalism from Penn State University in 1977.
Katie lives in the central Pennsylvania hamlet of Lemont with her husband and six children, two horses, and three cats. She is a pilot and a hang glider. She also enjoys reading, especially history and biographies, and coaching youth basketball teams in community leagues.
Katie grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where she listens avidly to her parents' and uncles' tales of growing up during the war years. Those stories,coupled with her interest in history and her lifelong admiration for Eleanor Roosevelt, inspired Katie to write A Time For Heroes.
