Katy Huth Jones grew up in a family where creative juices overflowed and made puddles to splash in. She has been a published author since 1992, and her writing journey has taken her in many unexpected directions. Though she appears to be an unassuming grandmother, she has been a band director, a Boy Scout leader, a Little League coach, played piccolo in a symphony, fife in a Revolutionary War fife & drum corps, and re-enacted Martha Washington with her husband as George in costumes she made from period patterns. Thanks to God’s mercy, she has survived cancer twice and continues to write while dealing with permanent side effects of nuclear bomb strength chemo.

Sometimes I get unstuck by going back and reading what I've already written to immerse myself in the story again. Sometimes all I can do is put pen to paper and start writing, even if it's just a list of objects in the room. It's been called "priming the pump."(less)

The 10 Best Books I Read in 2019

According to Goodreads, I read 64 books this year, but that's not completely accurate. There were a few books I read a few chapters but didn't finish for one reason or another. When you're living with multiple chronic health issues, life is too short to spend time on books that you don't fall in love with after the first few chapters.

Melissa Storm Hi Katy. Yup, I devoured Percy Jackson--a book per day, I think. Good recommendation ;-)
