Kathy Coatney has spent long hours behind the lens of a camera, wading through cow manure, rice paddies and orchards over her thirty-year career as a photojournalist specializing in agriculture.
She also loves—and writes—deeply emotional, small-town contemporary romance. Ironically, some of her books carry an agriculture thread in them, some more than others. Please note Kathy used to write these books under Kate Curran, but now writes all her books under Kathy Coatney.
Kathy also writes a series of nonfiction children’s books, From the Farm to the Table and Dad’s Girls.
When she’s not writing, you’ll find her mountain biking, cross-country skiing, or running—a really, really slow jog that’s been compared to a pace slower than a tortoise.
