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

If you’re a frequent visitor you’ve noticed my website has enjoyed a complete makeover. My newest novel, A Letter From Lancaster County, Harvest House Publishers, is available for pre-order now.  A Letter From Lancaster County will release July 1, 2017.

Can I multitask? You bet. Characters and story scenes fill my thoughts as I write a second novel for Harvest House, scheduled for a spring 2018 release.

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.
