All About Me
My name is Kathleen but everyone calls me Kathy.
Spending the first twelve years of my life on a dairy farm in central Ohio was very grounding. The fall after I turned twelve, my family moved to a twenty-six-acre property where a chestnut horse grazed in the pasture. The previous owners couldn’t take Red with them, so he became my horse.
Our twenty-six-acre property is the setting for the Pony Investigators series. The main characters, Amy Jo and Becky, are a great deal like Karen, my sister, and me.
My son, Steve, is high functioning autistic. Throughout his childhood, I knew he was highly intelligent and creative, but there was a uniqueness about him that wasn’t diagnosed until years later. With the Lancelot Maddox series, I’ve based Lancelot’s personality and behavior on my son’s uniqueness. When I write about Lancelot, I write it through the eyes of my son.
We moved to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania when Steve was three. Even though, I missed my Ohio family, I’ve loved living here. Sadly, my marriage ended. I met my future husband then remarried the following year. Twenty months later, we welcomed our daughter. My daughter, Lauren, is an artist. We’re travelling companions and girlfriends.
Two years ago, I decided to write A Treadwell Mystery series. Cynthia Treadwell and I share some of the same habits and characteristics. She loves morning tea and toast the same as I do. I love writing this series. The books are clean and a bit reminiscent of Agatha Christie’s books.
The saddest period of my life was watching Karen die of Glioblastoma, a deadly brain tumor. Carrie Rickert interviewed me concerning the experiences I had during those months. The podcast has been added to the website for those who would like to listen to it.
