  1. Kathy, congratulations on the BOOKLIST starred review for "Hot Flash"!

    It's so well deserved – even your titles are fun.

Empty Nest

Today is my youngest son’s first day of college classes. We dropped him off at FSU in Tallahassee late last week. That’s a photo of him in his dorm above.

I’m not quite sure how I’m going to deal with our new empty nest. Once my husband and I get used to how quiet our house is now, I’m sure we’ll explore the advantages to being just the two of us again 🙂 And I bet I have lots more time for writing!


Wooohooo!!! The American Library Association’s BOOKLIST magazine has named HOT FLASH as one of the Top 10 Romances for the year! The list will appear in the Sept 15th issue.

I’m holding a contest to celebrate! Click here to enter a drawing for a chance to receive a copy of HOT FLASH plus a $10 gift certificate to the bookstore of your choice!

Thank you, thank you, librarians! I truly appreciate your support of my books as well as the romance genre! And a special thanks to Shelley Mosley, the librarian who gave HOT FLASH such a glowing review!

When I heard the news, my arms broke out in goosebumps and they haven’t gone away — this despite the Florida heat and humidity! LOL!

Too Fun!

Click here to watch me read an excerpt from HOT FLASH.

The Tampa Tribune ran an article today, written by reporter Richard Mullins, about how well romance novels are selling in a sluggish economy. At the link above, you’ll be able to watch me read an excerpt and at this link, you can read the article. You’ll be able to link to the other authors who also read from their books, including Debby Mayne, Joan Johnston, Julie Leto, Karen Rose, Roxanne St. Claire, Elissa Wilds, Diana Peterfreund, and Terri Garey!

Okay, it’s a little embarrassing, since I’m more known for writing funny than I am for sexy. But hey, it’s all in fun. Right? And you know where I’ll be? Standing in line for the $100,000 advances! — KC
