My dad blowing out his birthday candles.
Hey All,

Now this is exciting, and years in the making. Yesterday, my dad, Nicholas, turned 90. Can you imagine? Ninety!

Something struck me while I was talking to him. He said, "Boy, the world has really changed since I was born." My dad was born in the family home, on 17th Street, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in 1921. The family didn't yet have a car, only rich folks were born in hospitals, and television had a few decades before it made an appearance in most homes.

That seems like a long time ago, I know. But the truth is that life is short, too short. Unfortunately, for many of the people I write about it's way too short, as they fall victim to violent crime. But even 90 years is a brief interlude here on earth. Our old planet spins so quickly, the years ticking by. It's true that there's nothing we can do to slow it down.

Yet, there is something we can do to make our time (more…)

Hey All,

This is so exciting. I've just learned that Library Journal has chosen The Killing Storm as one of its best books of 2010. The list was just released, and my novel, the third in the Sarah Armstrong series is one of only five mysteries. I can't tell you how honored I am. Here's the blurb about the book:

Casey, Kathryn. The Killing Storm. Minotaur: St. Martin's. ISBN 9780312379520. $25.99. As Texas Ranger Sarah Armstrong investigates the ritualistic killings of prize cattle, a four-year-old boy is kidnapped, and a hurricane heads straight for Houston. Riveting suspense and nifty plot twists in an outstanding series. (LJ 10/1/10)

Thank you to everyone at Library Journal, and thank you to all of you who are reading the book and recommending it to others. As the holiday season begins with Thanksgiving, I have much to be grateful for. High on the list are all of you who read my books. I love writing, but I couldn't do what I do without your support. Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving surrounded by family and friends!
