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.

Psychic Distance

In all the workshops, conferences, and lectures I’ve attended through RWA, I never heard of this concept until I went to the International Thriller Writers Conference in July.
