Kathleene Runnels is a former high school English teacher and owns her own business in cosmetic sales. As a teacher, she loved her students and felt passionate about imparting to them the strong family values she believes in. As a business woman, she continues to share these values and her faith.

Kathleene grew up in South Texas, living in Somerset and Southton as a child, then later moving to San Antonio in her teens. Upon marrying, she and her husband, Franklin, moved to South Bexar County where they raised their two children. In 2000, they moved to Medina County where they raise cattle, enjoy a clutch of chickens, and pamper their dogs and cats.

As a child and teen, Kathleene took many trips through Floresville and into Nixon and Smiley, visiting grandparents and other family members, often staying weeks at a time. Her greatest memories are from those lazy, carefree days in that sand country of Black Jacks, Live Oaks, and Black Diamond watermelons.

When she’s not on the road with her business, Kathleene relishes every moment with her husband, her children and her grandchildren. And she embraces life by gardening, painting, sewing, and writing. Her first book is titled Brides Wearing White, which entertainingly promotes teen abstinence. “Rose Petals” is her outlet for countless journal entries which include personal and often amusing experiences and remembrances.
