- 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. We both enjoyed a good laugh and I respected his compassion and generosity of spirit, two qualities…

Hey there, Max Pack—
Here they are! The covers for my upcoming releases.
The first book of my “Marrying the Duke” series is right around the corner! Avon will release A LITTLE THING CALLED LOVE as an e-book September 22. This is a prequel to the series. (I know, I know, it all gets confusing.)
This series introduces you to Fyclan Morris, born poor and Irish, who has been promised that his children’s children will be noble and wealthy. That is a tall order in Regency England although many an enterprising lad achieved exactly that sort of fame. In MATCH OF THE CENTURY, his daughter is to marry the powerful Duke of Baynton. Prophecy fulfilled, right?
Of course not! Life is never that easy, especially when love is involved. The “Marrying the Duke” series will cover the intertwining fortunes of the Morris and Whitridge families. They are bold, adventurous, and not afraid to love with all of their beings.
I’ll be on the road this fall:
Look for me at the Storymakers Midwest Writers Conference October 9-10 in my beloved Kansas City. If you are interested in writing, this will be a good place to be. I’ll post more info as I receive it.
I’ll be at KISSCON/Memphis! I was born in Memphis and I like the city. KISSCON is Avon Books celebration of readers and writers. We sweep into Memphis November 21st with tasty goodies and loads of books. More details will be coming.
All my best,
