Stories of Second Chances

Come, venture into Kate’s fictional world. No secrets hidden under her rugs, nor neglected childhood passions stilting her characters’ growth, nor feuds splitting families down to their very foundations.

Or are there?

What’s New in Kate’s World

Exact replica of one-room school house was a fun place for our meet-and-greet at the Pequea Valley Library. 

My second book in the Lancaster Discovery Series, Starting From Scratch, is available for pre-order from Amazon.  Release date is April 1, 2018.

And much as I love writing, I also adore interacting with my readers and I’m thoroughly entertained with your comments. So keep in touch whether through my blog, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or Goodreads.

“I loved this book from page one. It is a 5 star book and one not to be missed. I can’t wait for book two, Starting from Scratch.” ~ The Mary Book Reader

“I assumed it would be an Amish/Mennonite romance but it was a well crafted tale of two sisters and their estranged aunt. Loved the depth of each character as well as the vividly descriptive portrait of Lancaster County.” ~ Patti Gallagher, Librarian, Growth Garden Library
