Kathleen is proud to have been chosen to chair the OCCRWA 2018 Orange Rose Contest for unpublished writers.  The Orange Rose Contest is open to all Romance Writers of America® members, and many finalists go on to being published. Some from there become New York Times best selling authors. Chairing this major fundraiser is a big commitment, but I'm looking forward to it.  

What reviewers say about Kathleen Rowland's books:

Intervenus Series book 1, A Brand New Address, took 2nd place in the Book Buyers Best Contest. This is a New Adult Interracial novel. 

The Romance Studio-- Windward Whisperings. Kathleen Rowland spins a creative story with romance, passion and suspense making it an adventure hard to put down. The banter she creates between the two lovers is spine-tingling robust in this keeper of a read.

Midwest Book Reviews-- Deeds of Deceit.  Circled by the bloodthirsty and untrusting, you learn to appreciate the few allies you have.  Deeds of Deceit is an excellent addition to any thriller assortment. http://www.midwestbookreview.com/sbw/mar_12.htm

Type your paragraph here.

Book Buyers Best finalist Kathleen Rowland is devoted to giving her readers fast-paced, high-stakes suspense with a sizzling love story sure to melt their hearts.  Kathleen used to write computer programs but now writes novels.   She grew up in Iowa where she caught lightning bugs, ran barefoot, and raced her sailboat on Lake Okoboji.  Now she wears flip-flops and sails with her husband, Gerry, on Newport Harbor but wishes there were lightning bugs in California.

Kathleen exists happily with her witty CPA husband, Gerry, at their poolside retreat in Southern California where she adores time spent with visiting grandchildren, dogs, one bunny, and noisy neighbors.  While proud of their five children who’ve flown the coop, she appreciates the luxury of time to write while listening to demanding character voices in her
head.  And, she has the love of her life all to herself again.
