...all about Kathleen Korbel

To everyone who has so faithfully asked, yes, there has been a hiatus in books by Kathleen Korbel. The truth is that I took a little time off to play with my kids. And then, just to play. But I'm back, and I'm going to finish the Kendall series that was begun with Jake's Way in 1992 and continued with Simple Gifts in 1994. I'd love to say that I planned to do the entire family of four as a series all along, but when Jake's siblings showed up on the page, they surprised me. And now, they won't leave me alone.

Yes, Gen's book is out. SOME MEN'S DREAMS follows what happens when Gen meets the man of her dreams, only to find that some dreams are harder to survive than others. It's already garnered some lovely reviews:

a rare 4 1/2 Gold from ROMANTIC TIMES

BOOKLIST (STARRED) "...an emoitionally satisfying, beautifully poignant romance...a superbly fashioned, wickedly clever and witty love story. (Thank you Jon Charles)

WRITERSPACE "...Korbel does a masterful job of of showing us two people fallin in love despite their best intentions...(ditto Karen Williston)

LAURIE LIKES BOOKS: "Wow...simply phenomenal" (yowza, Leigh Thomas)

I hope you can pick it up and share more Kendalls with me. As for Zeke, yes, I'm still going after his book, but the trip to Ireland is being postponed 'til May (Beltaine, spring lambs, wild Irish flags). Too much time in New Orleans this year.

Thank you again, Korbel readers, for hanging in there. I know I'm not writing as fast as I used to, but I am still writing.

SOME MEN'S DREAMS has been named by Booklist as one of the top ten romances of the year! My thanks to them, to my readers and to Lesley Wainger and Silhouette who have always encouraged me to raise the bar higher.
