Kathy’s publishing career dates back to 1997, when she published a two-book romance series with Bantam’s Loveswept line. The first book in the series, For Love or Money, won a 1997 Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice Award.
In 2012, Kathy self-published two thrillers. Amanda’s Eyes, the first book in a series featuring crime reporter A.J. Gregson, is a paranormal thriller that has garnered a 4.4★ average on Amazon and was a semi-finalist in Kindle Book Review’s 2014 Best Kindle Book Awards. Her second thriller, Why Live?, is dystopian science fiction.
Current projects include the sequel to Amanda’s Eyes; semi-sweet remixes of her romance novels, books one and two of the Golden State Hearts Trilogy; the third romance in the trilogy; and posts to her blogs Write Minded (on the writing life) and Momma D’s Diary (a humorous look at aging and retirement).
A veteran of the U.S. Air Force and former communications specialist with a major university, Kathy has written more than one hundred features for print and the web. Now retired and novelizing full-time, she enjoys attending live performances by her sons (both professional musicians); reading; being towed around the block by her rescue dogs, Molly and Lucy; and playing handy gal around her 92-year-old foursquare home in Martinsburg, WV.
