Hi, I’m Kate Moore. Whether you’re visiting this site as a reader, fellow writer, scholar, or friend, welcome. I’d love to hear from you about books, writing, or teaching at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’ve lived most of my life along the California coast. That experience has made me a jeans-wearing, toes in wet-sand, married to a surfer, fog-loving weather wimp, with a hint of East Coast polish from spending my college years in Boston. Family history connects me to Irish and English immigrants, Cornish miners, gold prospectors, and adventurers who sailed around Cape Horn bound for San Francisco.
When I’m not reading, writing, teaching, or brainstorming, I walk in the redwoods; feed birds; collect books, apples and leaves; watch the tele-novellas on Spanish-language TV; and immerse myself in all things English. My favorite food groups are butter, brown sugar, dark chocolate, and red wine. My early literary influences were The Little Engine That Could, The Little Red Hen, and Winnie the Pooh. Austen, Heyer, Chaucer, and Homer came later and inspired me to put that first plot on paper.
My heroes are honorable, virile outsiders with some grand ambition. My heroines are practical princesses, who drive those edgy loners into love with good sense and good sex.
My family and friends offer endless support and humor. My children are my best works, and my husband is my favorite hero.
Thank you for visiting. Please drop in again.
