Kate Baray writes paranormal and urban fantasy. She writes and lives in Austin, Texas with her pack of pointers and bloodhounds. Kate has worked as an attorney, a manager, a tractor sales person, and a dog trainer, but telling stories is the big winner. When she’s not writing, she sweeps up hairy dust bunnies and watches British mysteries.
Kate also writes sweet romance (The Goode Witch Matchmaker) and cozy mysteries (Vegan Vamp & The Goode Witch Mysteries) as Cate Lawley.

Hi Lindsey,

I'm so glad that you're enjoying the series! You should see Forgiveness (story 2) and Reveal (Max's story) on Barnes & Noble within the next week. Love and Moving will be available on B&N late in June.

If you're interested in downloading the Kindle app on your smartphone or computer, all of the shorts and Witch's Diary are currently available on Amazon. Also, new subscribers to my newsletter who sign up before the end of May receive an Amazon gifted copy of the shorts collection.

Keep an eye on my blog - I'll be posting chapters of my new spin-off there soon!

Thank you for your question, Lindsey, and for your encouraging words!

“Okay, our next stop is the hardware store.” Marin’s lips curved into a hint of a smile. “Yippee. Axes, duct tape, lamp oil, and a shovel, here we come.” “It’s disturbing how quickly you came up with that shopping list.” And that made her grin outright. ~*~”
