My name is Kathy Cunningham. I've been a lot of things in my life -- paralegal, newspaper reporter, religious educator, teacher, wife, mother. And I've been writing forever. According to my mother, I started writing when I was two years old; I would dictate stories to her, and she would write them down on my father's yellow legal pads. She saved those stories. I still have a few of them. And they are pretty damned exciting -- one is about a duckling named "Yellowy" who talks his mother into getting a merry-go-round for their backyard (good stuff, those stories from my youth!).
Now, I'm publishing my own novels. It's very scary, this self-publishing thing. It means putting yourself out there without a net. It means saying to the world, "I think this book I've written is good enough to expect people to pay money to read it." And after trying for three years to find an agent willing to agree with me -- and failing -- I feel very much on my own. You'll find info about my books -- including where to buy them -- on the My Books page.
I'm also an Amazon VINE reviewer -- you can read my reviews HERE. A lot of them are book reviews, including some for other self-published writers who have contacted me about reading and reviewing their books. It was actually that experience -- reading other writers' self-published work -- that gave me the courage to do this myself. I owe them a lot.
I'm excited about what this website will bring to my life. I'm not a techie (as I'm sure is abundantly obvious!), but so far it's been fun putting this together. I hope you'll read my blog, post comments, and check out the books I'll be releasing over the next few weeks and months. And who knows where things will go from here?
