Welcome to the blog, Kathleen!! I am excited about this face-off! So fun 🙂
So, I know that you guys have heard of this fabulous lady! She’s only authored like 30+ books…
Kathleen started writing in 2000, and published her first short story a year later. Since then she has authored several short stories, novellas, novels, and have done a lot of freelance non-fiction work. She’s also worked as an editor. Kathleen has a Masters degree in Special Education, emphasis on teaching the blind and visually impaired, and a Bachelors in Early Childhood/Elementary Education.
Check out some of her great reads here:
Let’s do this!!
The rules are simple. I ask Kathleen some random questions. She replies and then I give my answers. Each winning answer is worth one point and I get to decide whose answer is better.
It’s my blog.
Here we go!
1. Favorite Season has to be FOOTBALL SEASON! So, what team? Ever been to a game?
Kathleen – Football season is definitely my favorite season. I have several teams I root for. NFL: Browns, obviously, since I live near Cleveland. I also like Green Bay. We used to be Browns season ticket holders, so I’ve seen a lot of pro games. College: Arkansas Razorbacks (because I’m from AR), Bowling Green State Falcons (because my daughter goes to BGSU), and Ohio State (because, hello, Ohio State).
Charity – No way! Why does that sentence say, “Used to be”??? Oh man!! We love football…well, my kids and I do. My hubby could take it or leave it.

2. What would be the hardest part of living an Amish lifestyle?
Kathleen – My answer changes all the time with this question, but I think the hardest would be not having air conditioning. Yes, I’m a wimp.
Charity – I’m sorry. Did you say that I can’t have my Apple Watch, iPad, iPhone and Apple TV?

6. Favorite song when you were a teenager? Fess up to those boy band crushes!!

Charity – haha. That video and song scared me!!! Mine is pretty scare too…
— Yeah. Frightening.
