Gues Post from author Kate James

It's All About You!

I am frequently asked what made me decide to write. There is a multitude of talented authors out there and an ever-growing plethora of wonderful choices for readers in all genres. So why did I decide to leave a successful and enjoyable business career to write? The answer is simple. It's because of you, the reader!

I wanted to write from a relatively young age. I have two, half-finished manuscripts tucked away somewhere that date back to my days in university. I never finished them because life in the form of a family tragedy, school and career intervened. I was and remain a voracious reader, but writing became one of those things in the back of my mind: gosh, wouldn't it be fun if . . .!

A few years ago on a whim, while we were on vacation, I wrote a short story and entered it in a contest. To my shock and delight it was chosen as one of the top entries. My ever-intuitive husband realized that writing was—or could be—something important to me, and he gifted me a personal laptop for my birthday a couple months later. While outwardly appreciative, in my mind I was wondering why I needed another laptop, when I had a perfectly good one from work that was constantly with me anyway. Clearly my husband knew better than me because having a separate computer that didn't look and feel like my work computer was pivotal.

In six months—writing really early in the mornings and very late at night, to work around my "day job"—I produced my first manuscript. I was incredibly fortunate to have it picked up by a publisher. It was in print and in stores not much more than six months after that. It's called Silver Linings.

Kate James spent eight years of her childhood living in foreign countries as her professional parents travelled on business. She lived in four countries and spoke five languages before settling down in Canada again to attend university. After graduating with a degree in civil engineering, she held a variety of positions in the field of real estate development and operations, and ran three substantial organizations. While her writing during this period was mostly business related, including presentations and speeches she delivered both nationally and internationally, her passion is and always has been fiction.

Kate's business and personal experiences enable her to write fiction with a deep, often first-hand knowledge of what she is writing about. This approach makes Kate's stories richer and more vivid.

Kate’s goal is to entertain you with well-written, engaging stories, set in intriguing places and with strong, likeable characters. “I hope my stories bring you pleasure and entertain you. Nothing pleases me more than receiving feedback from people who have chosen to spend their valuable leisure time with one of my books,” notes Kate.

Kate married her husband, Ken, in an elegant, ocean-front wedding on a tropical island. When they are not traveling, they split their time between their properties in southern and central Ontario in Canada.
