Kate Merrill Books

 Writing is my pleasure and my passion.

I create characters based on people I know, see, or imagine. When they breathe life on the pages, it's like giving birth, or perhaps a lot more fun.


Composing the plots is like assembling a giant jigsaw puzzle. Once that's done, I invite the characters to walk onto the pages and enjoy their journey.


Creating the setting is emotional for me. I write only about places I know, and I strive to capture the look, feel, smell, and sounds of each scene.


As the themes of the books unfold, I often learn something about myself I did not know before.


Who could ask for more?
