All About Kate

Kate has found historical romance fits her to a tee, since she discovered romance in an era most consider historical these days. A lifelong reader, she began writing when her three children were grown and no longer dragging her away from the typewriter every thirty seconds. Now she writes on a computer, which is faster, except when her very own historical hero calls.

2016 Ruby Winter Writing Festival Check-In Monday #3

Wow! We’re almost half way there. Or to put it another way, it’s February, ready or not. Have you been working hard to make those goals you set three weeks ago? Those goals that didn’t seem so daunting then may look like Mt. Everest now. Or if you’re lucky, those lofty goals look easy now. […]

Working Together

While working together isn’t a true collaboration such as you think of when reading James Patterson with (take your pick), an anthology or boxed set takes a lot of coordination and working together. I’ve never done a boxed set, but I’ve been in two anthologies now (Christmas Revels and Christmas Revels II) with fellow Ruby […]

Timeliness is next to Godliness

I’m waiting for a painter to show up for his 8:30 appointment to get a color swatch so he can work on my house. It’s now 10:15. Getting excited won’t do me any good. Around here, we call it Carolina time. Joke: The workman said he’ll be there on Tuesday. He is, but you never know […]
