- 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.

Dear Wonderful Readers—
Hope you are enjoying every day of this summer. Mine has been a bit up and down. I had a great time at the Romance Writers of American conference in Orlando but came home with the flu. Yes, I had the flu shot and I’m lucky I did. Who knows how much worse it could have been???
However, this gave me time for reading. I’m doing a romance blog for The Book People, an independent bookseller here in Austin. My blog comes out around the middle of each month if you wish to take a look. I’m also doing romance recommendations in my newsletter. I hope you sign up for it. Besides books, I also give a heads up on events I’m attending and will soon be sending out an excerpt from the first book of my new “The Spinster Heiress” series IF EVER I SHOULD LOVE YOU. Newsletter readers always receive first look.
Oh, and I debuted my glasses at RWA17. I’ve hit that point where contact lenses are no longer pleasant. Or help me see better. This is my new head shot by Mary A. Behre. There are so many cute frames out there. I think being a lass in glasses is going to be a fun new stage in my life. Let me know what you think!
All my best,
