Oh, was this bio day? Oops! I forgot. I was lost in my latest manuscript. Umm... bio. Yeah.

Kim  Gregory Chautona, I couldn't find the question section, so I'll ask it here. I absolutely loved, loved, loved Prairie. Highland wasn't as good, but I still really liked it and I am so longing for the next book to come out. Any inkling as to when that will be??? Love your books, Kim Gregory.

I actually discovered you and told my Bookworms on Spark People about you. I started reading Past Forward and had to tell my friends about it. We all got hooked on that series!


Pamela Hey Chautona...Thanks for accepting my friend request.
