Welcome To My Little Corner Of The World!
THANK YOU so much for stopping by! I’m Kate, and as you’ve guessed I write inspirational fiction. And with two novels published, my debut novel, For Such A Time and recent sophomore release, Not By Sight (Bethany House Publishers) I’ve enjoyed a busy year of traveling, book signings, seeing old friends and making new ones. I hope you'll take a break, pour yourself a proper cup of tea and browse awhile.
For Such A Time wins the Carol Award for Debut Novel!
I LOVE THE WRITTEN WORD and have a passion for history and writing stories about wounded, complex heroes and the smart heroines who save them. It's always rewarding to me when readers share that passion with me through my novels, and so I was thrilled this past September when my first book with Bethany House, For Such A Time received American Christian Fiction Writers 2015 Carol Award for Debut Novel. It's a tale close to my heart, and one I've waited years to share. A more modern day retelling of the Bible's Book of Esther, For Such A Time takes place during Hitler’s tyranny of WWII; it's a romance between two of the most unlikely people on earth, fraught with danger and life-changing events. It’s a story of incredible courage, redemption, and faith, and through the writing process set me on the path of my own spiritual journey.

My second novel recently released in August! Not By Sight is another historical romance, this time set in Britain during WWI.
"Downton Abbey meets the Scarlet Pimpernel in Kate Breslin's wonderful historical novel set amidst the drama of England's World War I home front." --best-selling author, Elizabeth Camden
In the spring of 1917, all of Britain's attention is on the WWI war front and the thousands of young men serving their country on the front lines. Jack Benningham, dashing heir to the Earl of Stonebrooke, is young and able-bodied but refuses to enlist despite the contempt of his peers.
A wealthy young suffragette, Grace Mabry will do anything to assist her country's cause. Men like Jack infuriate her when she thinks of her own brother fighting in the trenches of France, so she has no reservations about handing him a white feather of cowardice at a posh masquerade ball.
But Grace could not anticipate the danger and betrayal set into motion by her actions, and soon she and Jack are forced to learn the true meaning of courage when the war raging overseas suddenly strikes much closer to home and their fervent beliefs become a matter of life and death.
Please click my BOOKS page if you'd like to download an excerpt. And I hope you'll visit me on Pinterest to see images I chose that reflect my vision for Grace and Jack's story!
