Kathy Coatney has spent long hours behind the lens of a camera, wading through cow manure, rice paddies and orchards over her twenty-year career as a photojournalist specializing in agriculture.

Kathy also loves—and writes—deeply emotional, small-town contemporary romance. Ironically, her books carry an agriculture thread in them, some more than others. Please note Kathy used to write these books under Kate Curran, but now writes all her books under Kathy Coatney.

Kathy also writes a series of nonfiction children’s books, From the Farm to the Table and Dad’s Girls.

Fear I don't know what to write next, fear I won't be able to finish, fear I'm not a good enough writer. Recognizing this helps get through it and also I remind myself this is a job and I can't not get it done. I have readers out there wanting to read it. I also get myself going again by some advice I heard from Theresa Ragan. At the end of everyday she writes down five possible directions the scene could go and writes them down. This works really well for me when I'm stuck.(less)

I love writing stories that matter, that make people laugh and cry and feel good when they come to the end of my story. I really love hearing from readers how my stories touched them. That's the best of all.(less)
