Welcome to my corner of the cyber universe!  We’ve revamped the website and added some new features.  To the left you’ll now find links to my blogs, and to my Facebook and Twitter pages, and a few of my most recent tweets below.  Directly below you’ll find our new “ Behind the Scenes”, where you’ll find insider information on my books, and interesting things I discovered in my research.  This will change periodically, so check back often.

We’ve reorganized my books into series, which should make linking the books easier.  And don’t forget to visit the Work in Progress page.  You might be surprised what you find there.  I’ve been busy!  There is also a printable book list of my books currently in print, which will be updated as things evolve.  And don’t miss my gorgeous book trailers. 

Want to contact me, enter a contest, or sign up for my newsletter? Send an email to Kathleen@kathleengivens.com with the subject "Subscribe". If you would like to be removed from the list, please do the same with "Unsubscribe" in the subject line and we'll be sure to take your name off at once.  I don’t send newsletters often, so you don’t have to worry about being barraged with mail.  And I never share email addresses with anyone else.  My contests will be announced only in my newsletters, and winners chosen from newsletter subscribers who enter.  It’s free, and you get insider info before anyone else, so sign up today and join the fun!

I now have a blog of my own, “Kathleen Has Words with You”, where I’ll talk about writing and research and life, and get your feedback.  We can discuss anything you’d like to suggest (well, maybe not anything).  It’s an interactive space and I’m looking forward to being there a lot.  You reach it by clicking on the link at the left side of this page, or at kathleengivens.blogspot.com.  As always, you're welcome to play with Julia London and Sherri Browning Erwin and me at The Whine Sisters (www.whinesisters.com). You never know what we'll talk about next.


Ah, the Tower of London!  One of my favorite settings.  I’ve used it many times, in several different periods.  The very name itself is so evocative, isn’t it?  And its image conjures up all the scenes of high drama it has witnessed.  I could not have invented a more perfect setting in which to place my characters.
