I was born in The Netherlands. When I was eighteen, we moved to London, England. Later, I moved to Canada—a very interesting job offer—and I enjoyed living in Montreal.
Some four years later, I met my future husband, Arnold, at a party. He phoned me the next day, having had to jump through some hoops to get my phone number from the hostess… A year later, we were married. One son was born to us. I owned and operated an art gallery for twelve years.
After Montreal, we lived mostly in Victoria, B.C, but spent seven years in Ormond Beach, FL, for Arnold’s business. He was a truly fabulous man, who made every day of our life together interesting. I was desolate when I was widowed.
I did some internet publicity for Nina Bruhns, and one day Nina said, ‘You should write.’ I thought she was merely being ‘nice’, but she kept after me.
I’ll never forget 22 April 2002, when I sat down to a blank page on Word. Totally intimidated, believe me. And then, slowly, I began to type. That was at 5 pm. By 1:30 that morning, I had 15 closely typed pages (I didn’t know you could change the spacing) and when I read them over the next day, I realized I had discovered my calling.
My first publisher was Rose Brungard of Romance At Heart Publications. So far, she has published about 10 of my books. I sent a novel, Castle In Spain, to DCL Publications LLC and they accepted it. By now, they have published 33 books for me, two in print.
What do I write? I believe in writing what I know, and in stories that are sheer escapism.
I hope you, my readers, will continue to like reading my stories.
My books can be found at
and they are available at Fictionwise, All Romance eBooks, Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
Bye for now, KATE
