Kate McGinn loves a good story. An avid reader, she wrote her own short stories and would write a few chapters of a longer work only to set it aside. Two years ago, she decided to begin her first novel, "Exodus", a romantic suspense story and the first book in the Clare Thibodeaux series. Book Two, "Winter's Icy Caress" was published in June 2017. A third book in the series is one of her current works in progress along with a humorous tale about a young woman, Natalie, who is one of the main characters in some of her short stories (Natalie is the main character in "Mucking Around" which can be found in the short story anthology, Bite Sized Stories V. 2)
Kate pulls from her own life experiences when writing. She has worked over the years as a registered nurse, an Army Reserve officer, and ran a Bed & Breakfast Inn. Born in New York City, Kate grew up in the Midwest and lived along the Gulf Coast and in Italy for many years before moving to Wisconsin. In her free time, she enjoys reading, golf, hiking, camping, travel and hanging out with a crazy yellow lab. She and her husband have two adult sons, a lovely daughter-in-law, and live near the Mississippi River in a lovely Greek Revival home.
