Meet the Author

When Kathy was a child, she walked to the library every week to find books to read. Her father fuelled her passion by buying her two books every month, many of them classics. She loved books and one day wanted to write her own. That dream faded away as life got in the way and only once she had a baby and a toddler and spent many hours looking after them playing outside, did the dream began to reignite inside of her.

Thinking that she wanted to write children’s books, she completed a “Writing for Children Craft Course” and wrote three children’s books as part of a series. Then came baby number three and a move back to her home country after living in Zambia for seven years. Only when she went back to work, and had many hours to spare in a quiet bookshop, did she start writing again. After writing one children’s fantasy novel, an idea for an adult novel stirred within her. Thus began her love affair with writing romance. Since then, she has written several romance novels and self-published some books on the web and one print book.

Kathy has spent the last few years writing, reading blogs about writing, learning from published authors on how to polish her talent, and studying grammar books. She belongs to the Romance Writers of South Africa Group (ROSA.)

This book started out great. After all, I am a sucker for a romance. Lisa is a make-up artist for a magazine company and her boss, Dan has a terrible reputation for being a womanizer and a difficult man to work for. So when Dan approaches Lisa to ask for a favor she is not quite sure how to react. Turns out they both seem to be attracted to one another. Dan isn't as terrible as everyone has made him out to be. Lisa is very shy and timid but seems to stand up for herself if necessary and everything is just fantastic and they could quite possibly live happily ever after but........Lisa is a pain in the butt. This character drove me NUTS!!! I just about couldn't finish the book she got on my nerves so bad. Twenty percent of the book is about Lisa and Dan getting to know one another. Getting to know the family. A few secrets and then when it all comes out which is very early in the book. The rest is about how Lisa feels she is so independent that she can't be with the man she loves because she will loose that independence if she falls for him. She can't trust him for stupid reasons and when he decides to move on, she is upset and blames him. It was like she didn't want him but she didn't want anyone else to have him either. If this character was real, she would need serious therapy. I have to admit she did learn a few things about herself but wow! It took a whole book. Some people may like this type of character, I'm sorry I just don't. I feel it was just too much for the storyline and would have made a great short story but too much for a novel. Until next time, happy reading.
