Kathi lives with her husband, kids, grandkids, and dogs in beautiful Lake Tahoe. When she isn't writing, Kathi likes to read (preferably at the beach or by the fire), cook (preferably something with chocolate or cheese,) and garden (planting and planning not weeding).

“The strange thing is, this truly horrifying experience planted a seed deep within my heart that germinated and grew into a desire that, I have to admit, I've never completely overcome.”
Kathi Daley, Halloween Hijinks

“If I was going to spend the next day in jail for obstruction of justice, I'd better get a good nights sleep.”
Kathi Daley, Halloween Hijinks

“There was a very cautious man Who never laughed or played. He never risked, he never tried, He never sang or prayed. And when one day he passed away, His insurance was denied. For since he never really lived, They claimed he never really died.”
Kathi Daley, Christmas Cozy
