Our newest KAC member is . . . Kathleen Kaska. She's a Texan who lives in Washington state, BUT she has a Kansas publisher, Anamcara Press. Welcome, Kathleen!
Here's a little info about Kathleen:
Kathleen is a Texas gal. Except for an eighteen-month hiatus living in New York City after college, she continuously lived in the Lone Star State for fifty years. Since then, Texas has been hit and miss—a little hit, but a heck of a lot of miss. There was a time when she thought she would happily die in Austin, Texas. But circumstances and weather—especially weather—changed that. Now she spends most of the year on Fidalgo Island in Washington State, with a view of the bay and the mountains. When she gets homesick, she and her husband plug in the iPhone to Willie—as in Nelson. Soon they are dancing the two-step, imagining they are at their favorite honky-tonk in Tokio, Texas, where the mayor is believed to be a dog. Who wouldn’t miss that?
Kathleen writes the humorous Sydney Lockhart Mystery Series set in the 1950s in historic hotels and the Kate Caraway Animal-Right Mystery Series. She also writes about Sherlock Holmes, birds, and quirky things that come to mind. Her blog, “Growing Up Catholic in a Small Texas Town,” sums it up.
Murder at the Menger, her latest Lockhart mystery, will be released on June 26, 2022, by Anamcara Press. She is currently writing Murder at the Pontchartrain.
Kathleen is the owner of Metaphor Writing Coach, a mentoring and editing service for writers. www.metaphorwritingcoach.com
