Some stories just won’t get out of your head until you write them down.  That’s what happened to me with THE CHRISTMAS CLOCK.  Being known for writing romance, I had written a spicy historical Christmas romance set around Sherman’s occupation of Savannah on Christmas Eve.  It was… Read More

Pursuing Publication

on September 9, 2016

by Kat Martin I’m sure every author has an interesting tale of how he or she got published.  Mine is sort of a merry-go-round story that began when I met my husband, Larry.  He had written a Western saga and as we began to date, he asked if I wanted to read it.  Being a… Read More
