Hi Lauren,

So glad you enjoyed the book - thanks for reading!! No plans at this point for a sequel but, between you and me and all of Goodreads, I'd LOVE to revisit Althea and Jay again!! Maybe one day.... meanwhile I've got another book coming out June 2017.

I love creating a story in my head and then having the privilege of living there for the next year or so. I love creating these people, with very real hopes and dreams and flaws, who desperately want to change their worlds… who are often so much braver than I am in facing their problems. Sometimes, I lie in bed at night and disappear myself into that alternate world. Often, it's a world that's easier to navigate than the real one.(less)

Dear Wife is one of the most expertly constructed, fast-paced thrillers I’ve ever read. I felt for each of the characters because of Belle’s deft hand with characterization and expert writing and was genuinely shocked at the twist. Bravo, KB!!!
