Kathryn Cable

Biography

I’m a storyteller.

For as long as I can remember, I had stories rattling around in my head. Finally, one day I decided it was time to put them all down on paper and become a writer. It is my passion. My goal as an author is to share those stories with people like you who enjoy an easy-reading book; a novel which allows an escape from reality or in some way relates personally.

My stories are about the human drama of life and death, desire and love, anger and loss. I take ordinary people and put them in extraordinary circumstances. Then I watch to see how they respond. I focus on how my characters learn to overcome the obstacles that life throws at them while going through personal changes and growth. I have a keen listening ear and a wicked curiosity, which enabled me, to absorb the thoughts, hopes, loves, fears, dreams and failures of the people I have known. I find it fascinating how people approach things that happen to them and how it changes them – good or bad. What we expected our lives to be is not necessarily how they turn out. Life is full of more twists than a roller coaster, love is uncertain and risky, death unexpected, but we somehow make it through with hope, faith, and a bit of laughter to season the stew.

I have spent the last 25 plus years in public relations, writing in a variety of styles, such as journalism, advertising, technical, training materials, as well as feature stories/graphics for newsletters and trades. In my free time, I wrote for pure pleasure, expressing my imagination through storytelling and creative work. I have a degree in graphic design which I feel gives me an edge since I think visually. I see my plots, environments and characters quite vividly in my mind like a video.

Although I started out in a small town in Colorado, my ever-evolving career allowed me to live in many parts of this country, working for unique employers, (law enforcement, federal and local government, national emergency management, marketing, media, retail, art and military) and meet interesting, famous and diverse personalities. Evidence of these influences is present in my works. Much of what is in my stories I have personally experienced. Still the most impressive people I have known are my children, family and close friends. When I'm not writing I enjoy painting, photography and working on my ancestral history. I love action, historical and science fiction movies and books.

I really appreciate you reading my stories. If you are pleased after you have finished the last page I have accomplished my goal. I promise I will do my best to keep you entertained.
