Katherine Garbera

default-logo-200

Katherine Garbera is the national best-selling author of more than 50 books. Writing is the chief focus of her time after her family and the only thing she likes more than working on her own books is reading other authors. She is a frequent speaker at conferences and loves the opportunity to talk about writing with anyone who'll listen. Garbera started making up stories for her own benefit when she was on a competitive swim team in high school. Though she went to State and usually medaled at swim meets, Katherine says her heart wasn't in swimming but rather in the stories she created as she swam laps at practice.

She worked for The Walt Disney World Company for 15 years and did everything from being a hostess on It’s a Small World, to saving swimmers at the Grand Floridian Resort, to touring around VIPs such as Jack Valenti at the Disney-MGM Studios and being a production page on the New Mickey Mouse Club--yes, it might be possible that Britney, Justine and Christina owe her a nod of thanks for keeping all those kids who had to go to the bathroom from interrupting their performances.

Katherine's books have been featured in magazines such as REDBOOK (11/98)and have even been featured on the large JumboTron in Times Square, and excerpted in COSMO (7/10) Her latest release THE PIRATE is the second book in her Savage Seven series featuring a group of mercenaries. The story is ripped from the headlines and features a group of pirates who attack a tanker off the coast of Somalia. You can contact Katherine through her website.

IMG_4536Today is my wedding anniversary.  Seven years ago I felt like I wouldn’t be able to continue writing romance when my first marriage came to an end.  It shook me to my core because I have always really believed in things like forever and happily-ever-after and suddenly I had concrete proof that they didn’t exist.  I hope that doesn’t sound too melodramatic but to me it was the end of a belief system that I had always held dear.

Enter my longtime friend Rob.  We had always talked via email–this was the days before the massive social media we have now–and he gave me a nice safe place to talk about these fears and mainly what he did was just be my friend.  Slowly our friendship turned into something more and we were married four years ago.

We’ve had a real adventure since then moving from Texas-to-California-to-the United Kingdom.  And it has only strengthened our love for each other.  

Every year we try to do something traditional for our anniversary and this year we went to Paris.  It was the first trip there for both of us.  Surrounded by one of the most romantic cities in the world with the man I love made me realize that my faith in happily-ever-after has been fully restore.

What about you?  Have you ever had your faith shaken?  Did you come out on the other side of it stronger?

I’m giving away an electronic copy of any of my titles to one lucky commenter today.

Much love,

Kathy :)

_D1Y8PcZKX20m7xtiu_Z2B6nHWU0kAx23z9qcdPHf94I’ve been working on a novella HER SUMMER COWBOY and am finishing up my revision today.  This story was inspired by my childhood and the music that permeated our home and our vehicles.  The songs of John Denver are so deeply rooted in most of my memories that sometimes when I hear one of his songs I can feel the heat of the Florida sand under my bare feet and tepid breeze that blew around us from the swamp behind our house.  

I also can hear the sound of my parents voices as they sang along with the radio. Sometimes we’d travel late at night after my dad got off work to go camping  where we couldn’t get good reception then the sounds of their voices leading my sisters and I in those songs.  We’re not great singers but there is so much joy associated for me with singing with my family, I don’t think it matters.

When I was asked to write a story that would be part of the Big Marietta Fair, I was excited.  I knew immediately the story I wanted to write.  I grew up going to fairs and listening to country artists sing at them.  My heroine, Emma Jean,  would be country music royalty.  The granddaughter of Alan Jennings (a nod to two of my favorites Alan Jackson and Waylon Jennings) a legend and Grand Ole Opry Hall of Famer.  

images-27For Emma I just knew that John Denver’s This Old Guitar would sum up part of her character.  The way she felt about music in her soul.  I had so much fun reliving those old songs, getting introduced to new singers as I created the soundtrack for my story.  Living in the UK it is hard to hear a lot of US Country Music.  But my parents still listen to county radio and were helpful in suggesting artists.  

Is there a genre of music or maybe an artist that sort of sums up a part of your life?  My sister (the crazy middle one I blogged about a while back) would say Justin Timberlake Sexy Back.  Because that’s how she rolls!

I’m giving away a e-book version of any of my backlist titles to one lucky commenter.  

Happy reading!
