A Jill-of-All-Trades, Kathy has had a lifetime of experiences, which inform her writing. Having been everything from a cab driver to an executive, waitress to an awarding-winning newspaper editor, screenwriter to a pool cleaner, “her characters come alive.” Her first novel, Red Mojo Mama, was published in March, followed by a collection of essays from a unique life view. Finally, she’s just brought out Her Heart, another collection, this time of short stories an poems about what it is to be a woman.


Lydia “Red” Talbot has lost her mojo after three years of mourning for her husband, but not for long. She’s inherited a valuable mobile home park in the Gold Country of California, filled with a cast of eccentric characters. Her plans to sell it and take a world cruise are threatened by a hot handyman, a sizzling story in the rapidly growing town of Nuggetville and the appearance of her husband’s ghost, who has decided to hang around awhile as he searches for his next life.

Boredom sets in as she waits for her fortune to materialize, so she takes a part-time job as a reporter. Fancying herself the community newspaper equivalent of Christiane Amanpour, Lydia uncovers some shady doings by the City Council and a slick land developer. Citizens are bullied and her life is threatened, as she struggles to both expose the crooks and stay emotionally independent of the community of crazies she has been left by her beloved Aunt Esther.

Red is a spunky, smart-alecky thirty-something with more heart than she’d like others to see. She’s absolutely fearless and too honest for her own good sometimes. She’s also torn between love for her dead husband, Mac, and the new man in her life, Joe – handyman and chef.

The best of Life Lessons Volume II – a funny, insightful collection of essays – blog posts originally – that will make you laugh mostly, cry once or twice maybe, but mostly make you think – “huh?”


A collection of short stories and poems about the female experience: love, laughter, pain and survival.

Kathy’s Cause:
The Wounded Warrior Project (http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org) – a worthy cause under any circumstances, but mainly because I’m honoring my father through donating to his favorite non-profit.
