Kathie writes at night with country tunes playing from a local radio station while the rest of the world sleeps.
It's the quiet time of the night that inspires her to craft her stories with a unique style of sensuality, interspersed
with a little humor. Kathie has been a Romance Writers of America Golden Heart finalist twice. Her June 2001
release, His Baby Surprise, received the National Readers' Choice Award for Best Short Contemporary Romance
of 2001. All of her books have been listed on the Waldenbooks Category Romance Bestsellers list.
Kathie lives in the Illinois area her family settled in the early 1800's when they moved from North Carolina.
Besides writing, Kathie loves to read romances, travel to historic locales, and delights in trying to rid the world
of chocolate -- one bite at a time! She also enjoys meeting readers and writers at the numerous conferences,
workshops, and booksignings she attends.
Readers who have met Kathie at booksignings have asked about her charm bracelet. It's a very special piece of jewelry, containing a charm representing each of her books.
