I am SO excited today to introduce you to Katherine Lowry Logan. Kathy and I have known each other for a few years, as members of the Kentucky Romance Writers, and have recently discovered through family trees that we are distant distant Poe cousins. Fancy that — two Poes who are writers. (And, for those of you in the Kentucky area, Kathy and I will be sharing a table at the Carnegie Center Book Fair this Saturday from 10-2.)
I’m a long distance runner and an avid reader who turned a love of reading into a passion for writing. I graduated from Rowan University in New Jersey, where I earned a BA in Psychology and a minor in Criminal Justice. After graduation, I attended the Philadelphia Institute for Paralegal Training, earned a General Practice Certification, then returned to Central Kentucky and worked for twenty years as a paralegal and law firm office manager.
I’m a grandmother and spend several weeks every year in New York City with three of my five grandchildren. The other two live in Northern Kentucky, making it possible to attend ballgames and Grandparents’ Day. I take my grandmother job (spoil the kids) very seriously!
Tell us about your book
The Ruby Brooch is a mix of genres. It’s a mystery, a paranormal (time travel), and a romance. You can think of it as Little House on the Prairie meets Somewhere in Time with a Perry Mason type ending.
Although the story begins and ends on a fictional Thoroughbred farm in Central Kentucky, it mostly takes place in the American west in 1852.
