- 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, Max Packers—
As we enter this season of gratitude, I want you to know how much I value you. That you connect with the characters I create, that you enjoy the books I write is an incredible gift to me. I hope never to disappoint you.
And may we all have a wonderful new year. I just like the sound of 2014. I sense it will be a year full of surprises and opportunities, especially for me. I start off a new series with two books being released back-to-back. THE BRIDE SAYS NO will hit the shelves in February followed by THE BRIDE SAYS MAYBE in March. We will be following the adventures of the Davidson clan of Aberfeldy and the covers are gorgeous. You can read more including excerpts for both under Coming Soon.
The Avon Books Art Department outdid themselves . . . and I have bookmarks to prove it. If you would like an autographed set, please send a self-addressed stamped envelope to PO Box 1135, Powhatan, VA 23139.
By the way, in 2014, there will be more opportunities for writers and readers to meet and most of the events are free. Check out my events page for details but in February, I’ll be in Connecticut for The Big Book Club held at the Mohegan Sun Resort. Then in March, I visit Arizona for The Tucson Festival of Books followed by the Virginia Festival of the Book in Charlottesville. I won’t be alone. There will be hundreds of fabulous authors at these events. You will a grand time.
As always, you can catch up with me here or on Facebook, my social media of choice, but I hope our paths cross. I would love to see you.
