When asked to describe...

Dark. Edgy. Contemporary. Romantic.

Were we describing me? Or my fiction? Sorry. I drink too much...coffee, not enough water.

I swear too much for God and my mother, and I slip these into my fiction. Sorry.

I'm impatient, a perfectionist, a wordsmith, a dreamer, which ends up being good and bad. I'm always writing, just ask my family.

I've written...more

I have a manuscript like that (started a few years ago) and those characters are beginning to visit me at odd moments. Hopefully, that will be enough to lead me back to them after I finish the current work-in-progress. Hope that helps, Rajeev!(less)

I do find reading good fiction always rejuvenates me even when my own writing seems all but impossible to get down on the proverbial page. And yet, there are times when you just have to 'write it out' and try to overcome whatever is blocking you in the first place which can most often be described as an affliction having to do with fear. Where questions like these silently race through your head: Am I good enough? Is this just pure dreck? Will anyone even want to read it? Some or all of those thoughts...that try to take you down. Sometimes, you must just buck up and overcome the fear of failure and just write... If you do that often enough, the work gets done.

Katherine Owen, Seeing Julia

“Here’s what I know: death abducts the dying, but grief steals from those left behind.”
Katherine Owen, Seeing Julia

“The psyche questionnaire asks me to list the things I dislike. Why don’t they just use the word, hate? Why is everyone so afraid to admit they hate something? I write Advil, and then add Athens, Afghanistan and the U.S. Army. “In conclusion, I hate a lot of things that begin with the letter A,” I write in the space provided.”
Katherine Owen, Seeing Julia

“Finally, I say, “long dark hair, blue-violet eyes, slender, tall, she had a Liz Taylor in Black Beauty thing going on.” Reluctance sets in. Do I really want to put this together for him? “Like you,” he says. Pandora’s Box opens. Chocolate anyone? An abundance of heartbreak. Rare happiness. Plenty of self-destruction. Take your pick. Julia’s got everything in here.”
Katherine Owen, Seeing Julia

“I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.”
Marilyn Monroe

“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
Marilyn Monroe

Thank you so much for the kind note and for checking out my novels. Yes, my books have done well, for the most part. Thanks for considering my novels for your reading pleasure. I'm grateful for every reader I have! It appears with my fan base that if you read one and love it; you'll enjoy all three. As it stands, I am working on novel #4 which I hope to release by the end of the year. Best, Katherine
