- 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—
I’m wrapping up the Spinster Heiress series with THE DUKE THAT I MARRY and then it will be on to fun things such as a new series.
You want details? Well, 2019 will be a rest year. We are going to reissue my perennial favorite book that I’ve written— TREASURED VOWS. Look for it with a new cover around August. Phadra Abbott has always held my heart. She meets every challenge in life with everything she has. The hero is a banker. It actually wasn’t that hard to go against type and make a banker sexy, but then those of you who are bankers or in a relationship with one know that. I’ll post the new cover as soon as I receive it.
I have a brand new trilogy in mind. The working title is “The Logical Man’s Guide to Dangerous Women.” I’ve loving it. A MIND OF HER OWN will be Kate’s story from THE DUKE THAT I MARRY. Kate may take the lead for my fave heroine. We shall see. Right now, the two of us are struggling mightily. (That is writer’s talk for it is a work in progress!) Look for the first book in 2020.
Meanwhile, I’m traveling to . . . Indiana! February 10th, I’m teaming up with Julia Quinn, Vivienne Loret, and Marie Tremayne for historical time at the Johnson County Public Library in Franklin. For more info: Staylor@jcplin.org
