- About CathyI hail from: I was raised in Olathe, KS. I am a Kansan by nature–stubborn, loyal, independent. I now consider Virginia my home and think I have adapted well to the Southern way of life (although I’ll never be a good cook!) My family: Children, two dogs, a cat, and two horses. They keep me busy, busy, busy. My favorite quote: From Debbie Macomber, “Attitude is the key . . . each one of us is as successful as we make up our minds to be.” My most embarrassing moment: I have many. I’m gullible. If you have a good practical joke, I’m the one to play it on. I would dress for a costume party as: Wanda, the Good Witch. O to be perpetually pleasant! But notice that she didn’t put up with any nonsense from the Munchkins. The most dangerous thing I have done: Marry a man I’d known less than a month. He made me laugh (and looked good in uniform). Kevin passed away almost twenty-five years to date he asked me to marry him. It was a great marriage.

I have been having one amazing adventure with readers after another!
I just returned from New Orleans (Book Lovers Con), Paris (Festival du Roman Feminin) and Berlin (The Love Letter Convention). I’m having a great life. Besides being in fantastic cities, I was hanging with readers and authors who love romance as much as I do. A few things I learned:
- The romance genre continues to grow. I met French, Australian, German, and Austrian authors.
- Readers enjoy connecting with other readers.
- Contemporary and paranormal romance is big in Germany. However, after meeting me, some of the readers thought they might give a historical a try. I feel as if I am inviting them to the “dark side.”
With all of this in mind, I’ve started a new list on my website titled “Events for Readers.” These events will feature some of your favorite authors or introduce you to new ones. It is not a complete list and will keep changing so keep your eye on it.
What’s up next for me? In August, we will be re-releasing my favorite of the books I’ve written—TREASURED VOWS. Shortly to follow will be re-releases for ALL THINGS BEAUTIFUL, my first book, and THE TEMPATION OF A PROPER GOVERNESS.
Meanwhile, I am finishing up HIS SECRET MISTRESS (how do you like that for an old school title?), the first book of my “The Logical Men’s Society’s Guide to Dangerous Women” series. Who is a “dangerous woman?” Any one who thinks for herself. I’m having great fun with this characters and I know you will as well. Look for book one February 25, 2020.
Next trip up for me will be Comic-Con San Diego where I will be teaming with my dear friend Anne Elizabeth in her booth. Yes, I will have books to give away!
All my best,
PS Here are some photos from my fabulous trip! The first is with numerous readers at a workshop for The Love Letter Convention in Berlin. The second is meeting a French reader and being photobombed by Charis Michaels.
