Kathleen Delaney was born in Southern California, married right out of highschool and had five children. It wasn't until she moved to California's central coast with her last remaining "still at home" child, her parents, six horses, three dogs, an unknown number of cats and a brand new real estate broker's liscense, that she finally realized her life long dream of writing a novel. The settings for her Ellen McKenzie mysteries are taken from some of her experiences while living there. She now lives, and cntinues to write, in South Carolina where she and her two dogs live in a one hundred year old house.
The last two years, actually almost three, have been filled with adventures I would just as soon not have had. I lost my left leg due to PAD right before Thanksgiving, and have spent a lot of time learing how to walk again. Am doing fine and am grateful it was the left one. Driving would have been a lot harder if it had been the right. It makes traveling a little harder, and I find I'm conscous of things I never knew before, like how few handicaped rooms hotels have. But I'm still traveling and still writing. My 4th book, Murder Half-Baked, was released this last May, and I have started a new series, the first book is finished and with my agent. As for traveling, I've been to CA three times, Alaska and Florida, did my solo flight (first trip without any help) all through Virginia, Williamsburg, Mt Vernon and Montecello. Went a lot slower than I used to but it was fun. So, catch up with my latest adventures on my Camel Press Blog or just my rambling thoughts, and take a look at the books. Until later--Kathleen
