Award-winning author Kathleen Baldwin loves adventure in books and in real life. She taught rock climbing in the Rockies, survival camped in the desert, was stalked by a mountain lion, lost an argument with a rattlesnake, enjoyed way too many classes in college, fell in love at least a dozen times, and married her very own hero. They’ve raised four free-spirited adventurous children.

Hi Tressa!
Oh Yes! I am working on the fourth book now. It's told from Maya's point of view, and she is amazing. She's definitely not who everyone thinks she is. She's extremely complex and fun to write. I can't wait for you to read her part of the story. If you'd like an excerpt just email me.

I'm waiting to hear from my editor when Harbor for the Nightingale will be published. I should hear back any day now. My newsletter will let readers know how I'm progressing, or check back with me here on Goodreads!(less)

“My job as a writer is simple. Write a book I’m proud of, and present it as a gift to the world.
Some will love it.
Some will hate it.
That’s the nature of art.”
Kathleen Baldwin

“And I learned all those many years ago to stop listening to what people said, and listen instead to what they mean. Some people speak with honey and intend to serve us poison. You, my lord, speak with thorns but yearn for cake.”
Kathleen Baldwin, A School for Unusual Girls

“Hatred and anger are not the opposites of love, Tess. They are backsides of the same playing cards. It is easier to flip hostile feelings over and find the love and forgiveness that have been hidden there all along, aching to be found, than it is to produce new feelings.”
Kathleen Baldwin, Exile for Dreamers
