- 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).

Dear Wonderful Readers—
Before we go sliding into a new year after chasing ourselves through the holidays, I want to pause and let you know how deeply I appreciate your support over 2014.
I had three books out this past year. Crazy! And your response and encouragement to the “Brides of Wishmore” series has been a valued gift. Thank you.
Okay, new stuff I need to tell you: I’ve started blogging on a regular basis. Mostly I yak about bits and pieces of my journey through this life. I have a wonderful career that takes me down many interesting paths and I realized I need to document it. Yes, there are tidbits on writing.
On the subject of writing, if you ever have a question in that area, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I may not know the answer but I’m certain I can point you in the right direction.
Another new thing I started this year are giveaways on my Facebook page and also here on my website. Booktalk.com also runs contests offering my books as giveaways. It is actually great fun. Books are always good prizes but I love finding special little gifts to go along with the books. So check in once in awhile. There is usually something happening.
I’m writing a new series titled “Marrying the Duke. If you haven’t noticed, I don’t do dukes very often. I kinda got “duked” out. But then I had this idea . . .
Look for a handsome duke and THE WEDDING OF THE CENTURY in the Fall of 2015.
