Hi. My name is Kate Eileen Shannon. I am a Writer, Artist, and sometimes Real Estate Agent – a purveyor of ephemera and bagatelle. Trifles. Little things. Here today, gone tomorrow. In other words, a little of this, a bit of that, a jack of all trades and I fear, a master of none! In my journey so far, I have had three husbands and two children; lived in Ireland, Rhode Island, and Florida; owned a brake repair shop, an art gallery, farm, and a boat building business; been a Realtor, a title examiner, a real estate closer, and a government employee which led me straight to being unemployed, laid off, made redundant. I paint, draw, sculpt, craft, take photos, cook, and I write. (And I am a major, major fan of Days of Our Lives - just FYI.)

Hot Tub of Death by Rita Strombeck
Rate this book

The story started slow… no, I quickly realized, that was just the pace the author wanted us to feel. No cell phones, no computers, no Jimmy Choos or Manolo Blahnik high heels. Were it not for the fact that in the 1940s hot tubs began to appear in the ...more

Saving Grace by Pamela Fagan Hutchins
Rate this book
Clear rating
SAVING GRACE was a perfect sort of cozy/screwball comedy. It is a very funny book. Not quite sure why, it is also very sad. Katie Connell is a real hot mess. She’s an alcoholic germaphobe with a touch of OCD. At the beginning of the book Katie wins a ...more

Leaving Annalise by Pamela Fagan Hutchins

Loved, loved, loved this book! Did I mention I loved the book? LEAVING ANNALISE is not as slapstick funny as SAVING GRACE but it is more action filled and fast paced. Katie is 209 days sober when the book opens. And she is much less self involved. Ev ...more
