About this author

Kate McMurray is a nonfiction editor. Also, she is crafty (mostly knitting and sewing, but she also wields power tools), she plays the violin, and she dabbles in various other pursuits. She’s maybe a tiny bit obsessed with baseball. She lives in Brooklyn, NY, with a presumptuous cat.

Baseball MondaysI’m skipping Baseball Monday today and next week due to RT prep and trying to finish edits on Rainbow League Book 3 before I go. (I know, “Awww.”) If you’ve got a great discussion topic for a future Baseball Monday, I’d love to hear it! Hit me up, either in a comment, or my contact info is in the sidebar.


The post Baseball Monday: Quick Note! appeared first on Kate McMurray.

Satisfying conclusion to the series. There are a few things that still feel unresolved, but I think there's just no way around that; it's an impossible conflict. That the Amish vs. Outsider conflict is tearing everyone apart is to the credit of the a ...more

Josephine Myles Hi Kate - thanks for the friendvite! I keep meaning to read your books because I hear so many good things about them, but being a Brit I'm mystified by baseball. Actually, I'm mystified by cricket too, so that's no excuse :)
