In 2004, Kathy pursued her dream of writing a novel and finished her first draft for National Novel Writing Month. She wrote from 10pm-2am every night while her family slept, a tradition she still carries on to this day. Her manuscript sold in 2007 in a three-way bidding war to Grand Central Publishing. Kathy's debut novel, Waking Up in the Land of Glitter
, released in March 2010 and her second, Miss Scarlet's School of Patternless Sewing,
