Kathleen’s newest novel, Jewels in Time, is a Young Adult historical fantasy, set mostly in thirteenth century England, and other times and places, because it is, after all, a fantasy. Brianna is a young girl who knows she is magic. But she has no idea of the extent of her power, and that the test of her strength will lead her to the English Crown jewels that the magic folk stole from King John.

Kathleen’s previous novels are mysteries featuring Nara Blake, a young woman from a Caribbean island who moves to England, leaving behind a fiance and all her childhood memories. The  latest novel, Hotel Saint Clare, goes back to Nara’s life on the island. Lydia’s Story and The Gate House are both contemporary suspense novels set in England. The Gate House tell the story of Nara’s adjustment to living in Britain, and the mysteries she finds in the old house where she lives. In Lydia’s Story, she finds the diaries that belonged to her grand-grandmother, who was a spy for the British during World War II.

Kathleen loves to travel, and often finds inspiration for her writing while traveling, especially in Great Britain. She began writing as a child, but never took her writing seriously until she was living in Costa Rica in the 1990s, and joined a writing group with other teachers at the international school where she was employed.

She now lives in North Carolina with her husband and two cats, Tang and Sirius Black. Her house looks out on Carolina woods, almost fulfilling her childhood dream of living in a tree house.
