Born in Richmond, Virginia, in 1952, Kate Horsley Parker, the youngest of five children, loved to read. Her mother, Alice Horsley Parker, inspired that love, which is part of the reason that she chose to write under her mother’s maiden name.

Kate Horsley I'm posting this hoping that it's not too offensive to "market" my book "Between the Legs" here.
