Kathleen Cook Huebbe
Kathleen Cook Huebbe was born in Southern California, and grew up listening to stories of street racing in the 1950s from her father, a street racer himself. First envisioned as a daydream, Runaway was in the making for over twenty years. While it took many years and many memories to make, it was one long and desperately loved dream.
She has been a high school English teacher for eighteen years. She enjoys writing, gardening, but most of all teaching. Many of her students have inspired and encouraged her to continue writing.
Kathleen Huebbe lives in Southern California with her husband, their three energetic young children, and Jake… their ever-patient Golden Retriever.

Runaway “Their Moment in Time”
by Kathleen Cook Huebbe
The 1950s live on at The Oasis, a drive-in restaurant in Southern California. Five children growing up in the ’70s and ’80s recapture the lost days of leather-jacketed teens racing their souped-up cars on the nearby quarter-mile. Led by Runaway, they form a car club "The Shakers." Soon they are up to their hubcaps in competition that starts out friendly, but soon detours into the danger zone.
