Music is my motivation. I’ve always believed that, because of it, I would be somebody. Somebody to someone, and something to myself.
At age four, I picked up my grandfather’s acoustic guitar and, up until three weeks ago, I’ve never put it down. From a single chord to a full arrangement, music fed my soul. I craved it with every fiber of my being, but now, I just don’t know. That driving force that’s always pushed me has somehow stalled, along with the thrill, the passion, and the familiarity . . . it’s all gone. I’m beginning to worry that my love for music just isn’t enough.
As the summer tour finally comes to an end, I head to the Blue Ridge Mountains instead of returning to Nashville. It’s here that I’ve always been able to lose myself amongst the solitude and the lake, but what I didn’t expect to find was her.
Wild blonde hair, light blue eyes, and a laugh I find myself trying to coax from her has me completely enamored. She’s quiet, incredibly poised, and driven by secrets as big as the mountains around us. They’re what’s made her untouchable, and left me wanting to know more.
Maybe that’s what I need. Maybe I need more. Maybe I need her.

They say that life isn’t about how many breaths we take, but how many moments take our breath away. But what if those moments aren’t filled with happiness and love, but something dark and haunting? For me, it’s those moments that’ve shaped and taken over my life. I can’t change who I am, God knows I’ve tried, and, because of this, I’ve accepted the silver lining . . . I’m alive.
Fifty-two white keys, thirty-six black keys, ten fingers, seven notes, two friends, and one stage. At the piano, on the stage, with my two best friends, I finally found myself, and I live for those moments. One by one, I collect them, cherish them, patiently waiting for the next, until it arrives and changes everything. That’s the moment I meet him.


Kathryn Andrews has done it again with a truly beautiful,heartbreaking and healing story! After being a fan of Kathryn’s from the very start with the Hale Brothers’ series I was looking forward to reading  Blue Horizons, as a stepping stone of a new chapter of characters; and boy wasn’t it a gut-wrenching tear-flooding heartbreak pull of emotions to read. My heart felt violated and put through the ringer as the emotion and beauty of character flaws and heart broke and built an undeniable bond between two souls held by the past, lost in the present and unable to find a way to the future.

There is something special about the way Kathryn Andrews binds characters and builds connections as it puts me in a mood to dive deep into the souls of connection and the never stop reading. In Blue Horizons the depth of a painful past from the lead female Ava attributes a new branch in direction in Kathryn’s writing. I found that Blue Horizons for me; took a more descriptive and the torched souls combining lead a passionate and emotional path of healing and heart.

Ava is a soulful musician with a traumatic past that through chance meets Ash {Will Ashton} at a bar and a connection builds and tantalises through the looks and deceptions of truth. Chances arise; past scriptures of a taunting pain haunt the lines of the pages and trust leads the way as to whether walls can break and Ash can hold Ava whilst the walls of pain hold her tight.

The stories elements hold you tight and the writing flows from your fingers to your toes unbreakable and page after page creating magic. Kathryn’s sonnet of heart with a subject many would turn away from defines the greatness of powerful writing and how no matter how alone you feel the hold of a connection can be your strength.

Although, I wasn’t deeply in love with the descriptive depths of Blue Horizons; that’s just the mood swinging gypsy my mind can be when she wants more dialogue I still loved it. The writing and characters united the created a melody of strings and keys the lyrically spoke to me and I truly recommend reading it. A beautiful story and one you definitely won’t regret picking up.

Author PhotoOVER TEN YEARS ago my husband and I were driving from Chicago to Tampa and somewhere in Kentucky I remember seeing a billboard that was all black with five white words, “I do, therefore I am!” I’m certain that it was a Nike ad, but for me I found this to be completely profound.

Take running for example. Most will say that a runner is someone who runs five days a week and runs under a ten minute mile pace. Well, I can tell you that I never run five days a week and on my best days my pace is an eleven minute mile. I have run quite a few half marathons and one full marathon. No matter what anyone says . . . I run, therefore I am a runner.

I’ve taken this same thought and applied it to so many areas of my life: cooking, gardening, quilting, and yes . . . writing.

I may not be culinary trained, but I love to cook and my family and friends loves to eat my food. I cook, therefore I am a chef!

My thumb is not black. I love to grow herbs, tomatoes, roses, and lavender. I garden, therefore I am a gardener!

I love beautiful fabrics and I can follow a pattern. My triangles may not line up perfectly . . . but who cares, my quilts are still beautiful when they are finished. I quilt, therefore I am a quilter.

I have been writing my entire life. It is my husband who finally said, “Who cares if people like your books or not? If you enjoy writing them and you love your stories…then write them.” He has always been my biggest fan and he was right. Being a writer has always been my dream and what I said I wanted to be when I grew up.

So, I’ve told you who I am and what I love to do . . . now I’m going to tell you the why.

I have two boys that are three years a part. My husband and I want to instill in them adventure, courage, and passion. We don’t expect them to be perfect at things, we just want them to try and do. It’s not about winning the race; it’s about showing up in the first place. We don’t want them to be discouraged by society stereotypes, we want them to embrace who they are and what they love. After all, we only get one life.

In the end, they won’t care how many books I actually sell . . . all that matters to them is that I said I was going to do it, I did it, and I have loved every minute of it.

Find something that you love and tell yourself, “I do, therefore I am.”
