About the Author

Kate Christie was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and grew up playing in the waters of the Great Lakes. Of mixed Dutch and Scotch-Irish descent, she remembers the Tulip Time Festival in the nearby town of Holland fondly, and the oliebollen (Dutch pastries) her neighbors Hank and Gwen used to share at the holidays even more fondly.

A graduate of Smith College, Christie lives near Seattle with her wife and daughter and their two dogs. Family Jewels is the second title from her indie imprint, Second Growth Books, and follows Gay Pride and Prejudice (March 2012). She has three other novels in print, all published by Bella Books: Solstice, Leaving LA, and Beautiful Game. For book trailers, first chapters, and more, visit

This is such a beautiful story about finding oneself by staying true to what you love. This young woman overcomes many obstacles by suffering through the realities of growing up a lesbian in a very real and believable story. I loved the book and would highly recommend it.

Elizabeth is asked by her father to join her on a business trip. Shebthoughtbit was all business, she was wrong. This was a wonderful tale of a girl coming to terms with personal issues and rekindling an estranged relationship with her father. Elizabeth takes us on a tour of Belgium and Holland. If you have ever been there, the places mentioned will be familiar. This was a book you could climb into and travel with the main character Elizabeth. What is more important is she realizes that her father is proud of her and who she has become. The other characters are equally as lovable and you get to know ol' Fitzy personally. I felt as if I had known the people all my life. It was a beautifully written story not to be missed. Enjoy.
