Thanks for having me as a guest, Laurel. You are so much fun to talk to.
I enjoyed our visit immensely! Thank you for sharing your world!
I love finding a new mystery series with a character I can relate to. Kate Carraway is that kind of heroine, and Kathleen Kaska is my kind of author. Thanks for this wonderful glimpse into both.
Thank you for taking the time to listen and comment, Saralyn! I’m stunned by how many wonderful works by relatively unknown authors are available today (and I mean “unknown” in the not-yet-blockbuster-famous way). A reader’s greatest obstacle, however, is that elusive thing called time (to read them all)!
