Getting By

John, dumpster-diving adolescent loner—and proud of it!—, is appalled when his mother comes home with a baby girl but no formula or diapers.

About Kathleen Buckley

I’ve been learning to write fiction since I was a child. In the 1990’s, I sold stories to Robert Bloch for his anthologies, PSYCHO-PATHS and MONSTERS AMONG US. My novel, GETTING BY, will be available at Smashwords™ on 9/20/13; it's already available for pre-order. My short story, MINOR MIRACLES (about 5,000 words) is available free of charge. Currently, I am working on a historical novel set in England in 1740.

I’ve been a paralegal, a security officer and several other things, all of which provided background for GETTING BY. I lived in Seattle, the scene of most of the action, for many years, in New Mexico for several years, and have done home renovation in both. I read mysteries, some fantasy, Georgette Heyer romances, and books about the history of the Southwest. I like cooking. I’m also interested in medieval, Renaissance, and vintage clothing, and old stuff generally.

In addition to my Smashwords story, Minor Miracles and my novel, Getting By, my first romance novel, An Unsuitable Duchess, set in England in 1740, was released by The Wild Rose Press in May, 2017.
