Kathleen’s earliest memories are of wanting to be a writer. To create stories that would touch the lives of others who love to read the way she does. “Outside of motherhood, writing was the first thing that made total sense of my world.” She started writing when her 3 children were napping, then later at when they were at school. Although they are grown up and on their own, she still prefers that school day writing schedule. “I’m working on my 20th novel, and it’s amazing to see the changes in traditional publishing, including ebooks and the opportunities writers have to interact with their readers.” She enjoys pushing the boundaries of traditional romance into erotic romance, romantic suspense, women’s fiction and stories for young adults. She makes her home in the Pacific Northwest with her real-life hero and his two Westies. “Can you believe I wrote A Hard Man to Love with a hero named Steele, years before I met my own hero named Steel? He’s the most romantic man I’ve ever known.” Which just goes to prove the ultimate power of the written word. Her books have garnered rave reviews and numerous awards including Romantic Times K.I.S.S., a Scarlett Letter, and a Golden Quill.
