A Note From Kathy Otten


Hope spring will be here soon.  Living in the snow-belt, we still have quite a bit and they are still skiing on the local slope.  It is sugarin' weather and with cold nights and warm days the sap is running and many of my neighbors are hoping for a good season.

Winter is a good time to write and I recently signed a contract for my newest historical, western romance novel, Lost Hearts, which is the story of a troubled U.S. Deputy Marshal who must bring to justice the only person who can heal his soul.  I will let you know when I have a release date.
My historical western novella, An Ordinary Angel, continues to receive wonderful reviews.
Just click on the cover for a blurb and excerpt.

For all you readers who like the feel of their favorite book in their hands, my novel Between the Lines is available in print from your favorite bookseller.
