America's Next Author!

Kate Simon

The youngest of six, married forever and related to half the eastern seaboard and a portion of the Great Northwest. Storytelling is a big part of my Irish DNA. I started writing at forty as a way to get all these stories rolling around in my head from keeping me up at night. I hope you enjoy.

Beautifully written. The natural flow of conversation between all of the characters, along with the subtle body language described paints a vivid picture of a realistic and loving relationship between the protagonists. I enjoyed it so much that I just told my wife that I love her. Can't wait to read more of your work. Excellent!

I loved the story. It was great the way Jim listened in on the girl's conversation. Really good. Your story held my interest the entire time. If you have the time please read my story 'Drift Away' and leave a review to let me know if you liked it.

I enjoyed this story. I am a hopeless romantic; and this story fit the bill! Well written and with likable characters that I could connect with. Well done.

Okay, this romance started out and I was seriously starting to doubt the five star reviews I saw on this thing...and then it happened. The author hit her stride and the story went from good to wow. Good job author! I teared up (and maybe had one or two fall) in the end of this story. It was an awesome read!

An excellent read -- a real page-turner (or mouse clicker as the case may be). Kate Simon pulls the reader through the story with a flair and style rarely seen today. Highly recommended!

Kate Simon speaks the language of misunderstood emotions and deep connection most strongly through dialogue. This sweet romance made me smile.
