Hi! I’m Kathryn Cushman, but my friends call me Katie. I hope you will too. (I’ve reserved “Kathryn” for my Mom when she’s mad… and those pesky telemarketers.)
I am a wife, mother, avid reader, part southerner / part California girl, and “retired” pharmacist. You can visit my Bio page to find out more about me and my writing life.
Besides my love for family, California, and reading, I’ve also loved writing for as long as I can remember. My ninth book, Fading Starlight, is coming to stores in May. You can find out more about it, and my other books, by checking out my Books page.
If you’re part of a reading group, or your book club has selected one of my books for discussion, I’m offering thiry-minute BookTalk phone calls just for you. BookTalk calls provide a way for your group to ask questions and hear the story behind the story. It also enables us to meet, even if we live on opposite sides of the planet. Isn’t technology great? You can learn more, and send me an e-mail to schedule a live chat for your group, through my Connect page.
Another way we can stay in touch is through my notes page. While I don’t post daily, I do post semi-regular updates about what’s going on with my books, my writing, and life in general, plus answers to reader questions. Check out Katie’s Chronicles for more information.
Once you’ve read my books, you’ll know that I have a serious side. Life is serious, and my books are serious, but sometimes we just need to relax and have some fun! If you need a dose of humor, or just a quick brain break, check out my Fun page. I’ve created it with you in mind, and filled it with everything from crossword puzzles to a very tricky bookworm game.
And before you leave, don’t forget to join my mailing list by filling in your name and e-mail address in the box on the right. I promise not to bombard your inbox with daily blather, but I will keep you up-to-date about my new book releases and contests, and I’ll even throw in a few sneak peeks of upcoming novels.
Thanks for stopping by. And come back soon or find me on Facebook!
