Katie Chats

This is just a little glimpse into the occasionally crazy, but mostly mundane, life of a romance writer. Please don’t be too shy to leave a comment. I love to hear from my readers, even if all you want to say is “hi.” The last Wednesday of every month, I’ll be choosing a name from my comments to win a romance novel!

A Bear? Where?

Posted Sep 1 2015

Today, Hubba informed me that there was a bear in our neighborhood last week.  Since we live so close to the Sandia Mountains, this was not that surprising.  It’s not unusual for a black bear to wander down during harvest season in search of a fruit salad.  They’ll eat their fill and rile a few […]

Summertime Pie!

Posted Jul 21 2015 in ,

Summertime isn’t summertime without pies.  My mom loved to bake pies.  Her pies always went with the fruit season.  She’d start in June with cherry pies, July was blackberry, August was peach, and September was apple.  I’d love hanging in the kitchen when she was pie-baking.  She made her own crust with Crisco shortening from […]

Off the Grid

Posted Jul 7 2015 in , , ,

Hubba’s idea of a vacation and mine are two different things. My idea includes warm sunshine, sandy beaches, waiters who keep you in tropical drinks, and Internet access so you can stock your e-reader. Hubba’s idea of a vacay usually includes exercise, getting dirty, and something scary. Which was why I was a little leery […]

Love Notes

Posted Mar 30 2015

Writing is one of those jobs where you don’t have a lot of interaction with people.  Social media has certainly helped, but writers still spend the majority of their time alone in a room with only their fictional characters to keep them company.  So when real people contact us to let us know that they’ve […]

Fifty Shades of Grey Movie

Posted Mar 13 2015 in , ,

So I did it. I did what thousands of women–and men–are doing. I went to see the movie Fifty Shades of Grey. Now here is where you need to stop reading if you haven’t seen the movie. Or if you are just bored silly by the entire Fifty Shades phenomenon and now hate anything to […]

Heart to Heart Conversations

Posted Feb 12 2015 in

While shopping at Target, I stumbled across this card and had a good laugh.  At one point, Hubba’s conversations hearts would’ve included all three, but now, he drinks more Dr. Pepper than Bud, and since I started writing full-time, he’s learned to cook.  Yippee!  So the only one he’d still include is the booby one. […]

Katie the NEW Mexican!

Posted Feb 7 2015 in , , ,

There are still some people who read my bio at the back of a book and think I live in the deserts of Mexico.  But I actually live in New Mexico, which is part of the United States–much to the disappointment of my relatives in Iowa who like to introduce me as their foreign cousin […]
