Before she could even read, Kathryn Bashaar earned the nickname “Suitcase Simpson” for the little suitcase of books she carried everywhere she went, and her passion for literature has continued into middle age. The Saint’s Mistress is her first novel. Her essays and short stories have been published in the Pittsburgh-Post Gazette, the Civil War Times, and the literary journal Metamorphosis. Kathryn lives in Pittsburgh, PA, with her husband, Al, and is thrilled that both of her adult children and her first grandchild also live in Pittsburgh.

I've obviously spent way too much time away from my author page. Well, I never have a problem sitting still too much! Both at my day job and at my labor-of-love job, I sit, sit, sit, but I am a very fidgety person, so I get up at least once an hour to get a drink of water or a snack, or (at my office job) walk over and talk to someone when I could have sent an e-mail or IM. So, Jason, if you are not a naturally fidgety person, like I am, I recommend becoming fidgety. Once an hour, make yourself get up to either get something to eat or drink, or do a few exercises (keep weights in your office or walk around the block if it's a nice day). This was a really good question; I enjoyed answering it. p.s. How did you like Passion of the Western Mind? It was almost too thought-provoking for me; I was glad to finish it!(less)

I actually have never understood what she saw in the dark - and, frankly, dishonest - Rochester, but Jane is like my best friend. If she loves her man, I'll put up with him.(less)
