Royale King Leo BarsABOUT KATHY MANN

Kathy (Bennett) Mann grew up on a small rural horse farm in Mason, Michigan, where she developed a love for horses, reading, and writing. Her award winning articles have appeared in Western Horseman, Rails and Trails, Equine Times, Rocky Mountain Rider, and more.

Kathy enjoys her horse farm in Leslie, Michigan, with her husband where they keep a small herd of Quarter Horse breeding stock including the stallion, Royale King Leo Bars, several mares and his foals.

On St. Patricks Day, March 17, 1998 Kathy found her father crushed and dying in rutted ice near the barn after a farming accident. His miraculous survival inspired her faith and she wrote his story which was produced for the 'It's a Mircale' Series. The film aired on PAX Television in 1999. She then wrote the book, Crushed, an Amazing True Story of Determination and Survival, as a gift to her father whose mission in life was to share his story. The newest version of Crushed was released in 2012 with more details, pictures, and documents.

Kathy has been Vice President of the Michigan Press Women Association/Media Professionals of Michigan. Michigan Press Women (originally the Michigan Women’s Press Club) was founded in 1964 when 44 press women met at Michigan State University. Its objectives were to educate members through seminars and workshops, provide opportunities for women to know one another and share ideas, recruit qualified young people into journalism and conduct contests as a means of improving writing and newspaper related skills. Since then, the organization has expanded to include all members of the media. Historical information is located at the Western Michigan University Archives.
