New! Late April

Late April celebrates the poetry genre, as well as the seasons—of nature and of life. In this book, the cyber world of social media and big data also have a place. Juxtaposed with memories of Gotthardt’s mother, these pieces remark on what it means to be human in 2019.

Katherine’s poetry is refreshing and relevant. It takes the reader to depths in the simple and captures your imagination to ponder the poignant. This is Katherine's fourth collection of poetry, a must read for poets and those that appreciate poetry.     -Author Jan Rayl, BSN, RN, Vice President Write by the Rails, the Prince William Chapter of the Virginia Writers Club

Whether it’s about technology, health, loss of a mother, nature’s seasons, or aging, Katherine has a unique way of expressing the joy, complexity, irony, grief, and humor of living life in the modern age. Her work is sprinkled with literary, historical, and religious references, giving depth and texture to her creative imagery.  She can sting and soothe with equal facility and usually has a surprise in store for her avid readers. A must read.      -Author Nancy Wyatt, MHT, TNLP
