My devout Catholic parents named me Mary Katherine, with the intent that I would be called just that.  Mary Katherine is a mouthful, so that only lasted a year, and I’ve since been called Mary Kaye, Mare, M.K. and M., among other nicknames.

When I moved to Chicago and introduced myself over and over as Mary Kaye, almost everyone immediately called me M.K. instead.  After more than a decade, I’m so used to M.K. that, if anyone calls me Mary Kaye, I feel like I’m getting in trouble.

If you have comments or questions about my memoir, website or blog, please contact me at mk@mkkennedy.com.  And, feel free to call me M.K. when you do:  It’s easiest to type.
