Kathy WorkingW E L C O M E to my official website. Since you found your way here, I assume you know I write inspirational suspense novels. In fact, I thrive on weaving inspiration and suspense into modern-day stories that are exciting and relevant. And though I endeavor to entertain you with riveting plots that will keep you guessing till the end, it’s my hope that my characters will tug at your heartstrings and give you something to think about long after the cover is closed.

I’m delighted when readers tell me my novels are exciting and hard to put down. But it’s when a heart is changed by something I’ve written that I’m humbled beyond words. Only the Lord can make my words come alive in a reader’s heart. I consider it a privilege to be used this way, and you’ll notice each of my books is dedicated “To Him who is both the Giver and the Gift.”

An update on Only by Death, book two
in the Ozark Mountain Trilogy

To my wonderful fans,

I cannot thank you enough for the amazing patience and understanding you’ve shown me over the past couple of years as I stepped away from my writing in order to care for my husband Paul, who struggled with a number of serious health issues, including prostate cancer. Your many prayers were felt, and God answered.

My beloved Paul is in heaven now. He stepped into eternity this past June 25. Since that time, I’ve been adjusting to life without him, learning to balance my time in a new and different living situation, and redirecting my priorities. It has taken a while, but my creativity is flowing and I’m writing again, and hoping to submit the manuscript for Only by Death by the end of 2016.

David C. Cook Publishing has been so gracious to have allowed me time to be with Paul through his illness, and time to heal in the wake of his passing. I have not been given a pub date for Only by Death, though it looks hopeful for sometime next year. HOWEVER, PLEASE NOTE THAT NO DATE HAS BEEN SET. There has been some confusion about this, so please check back here for the official pub date, which I will post once it has been determined.

Once again I ask for your patience and your prayers as I allow the Lord to stir my creativity and set the pace for the completion of Only by Death.

In His love and by His grace,
