More About the Author
Kathy lived for eight years five miles up a dirt road, emphasis on the up. She became an expert on long johns and driving snow covered roads. Now that the scenery has changed from cottonwoods to cactus, she's enjoying learning about javelinas, saguaros and other desert life. When not enjoying the outdoors or cozied up reading, she loves to travel and explore different cultures and cuisines.
She's happiest combining that traveling with speaking about words and writing.
Kathy's stories and essays have appeared in Futures Mystery Magazine, Hauntings from the Snake River Plain, and An Eclectic Collage -- Creative Works by the Women of the Pixie Chicks' Writers Group. Kathy is a member of Sisters in Crime and International Thriller Writers. She co-founded the popular mystery lovers' conference, Murder in the Grove.
MUSTARD'S LAST STAND was inspired by her love of the outdoors and her hope that we will save it.

Note: Mustard's Last Stand comes down firmly on the side of environmentalists.
I was pleasantly surprised with Mustard's Last Stand. I was worried at first with the amount of characters we were introduced to right from the start. However, despite the magnitude of characters in the book, the author pulled it off exceedingly well and I had great grasp of the main characters and their motivations.
This story was witty, fun and kept me guessing. I also found it very profound at times. I think my favorite line in the story was,"Never underestimate the lunacy of a man who thinks he's right." You also have a main character nicknamed Roadkill, what can go wrong?! I definitely recommend this story for a fun read.....Sara
Author Kathy McIntosh has either met these folks and changed their names, or she's got an incredible gift for creating hilarious, yet recognizable characters. With her words, you see, hear, even smell the characters as they race, stumble, sashay, and fight their way to claiming the old family homestead, rediscovering themselves, and giving a sleepy town a good ole wake-up call along the way.
The characters take us on a hilarious, smack-your-forehead ride, rooting for the heroes, misguided and irresponsible tho' some of them may be.
I was happy to hear there will be more Mustard adventures as Ms. McIntosh is finishing the next novel in this series.
