Curl up inside with a good book and stay warm this winter!

Think Spring!

The Body in the Birches, set on Sanpere Island, Maine, goes on sale May 12th. Looking out the window at the frozen rhododendrons this seems like a dream! Yet, Katherine has just sent in the final page proofs and the cover may be her favorite yet. Pre-orders are available at HarperCollins and from your favorite independent book sellers

Have Faith in Your Kitchen!

Four years ago Katherine published her series cookbook, Have Faith in Your Kitchen, with renowned Orchises Press in Alexandria, VA. The combination of recipes from the books, the Author's Notes, and lovely vintage culinary images has drawn praise from all over the globe. Perfect for holiday gift giving, or a treat for yourself. Order here. One of Katherine's mottos, remember, is "Whodunit is irrevocably tied to Whoateit"!

Small Plates
