After earning a B.A. in English, Kathleen McCoy Pfeiffer published her fictional story, ‘Diplomatic Deceit,’ in 2009, now available as an ebook from lulu.com. She and her husband live in Batavia, Ohio, where she has worked as a copywriter and is the development assistant at a nearby nature preserve. She is a descendent of the McCoy and Chrisman families that helped settle Independence, MO.
In May of 2012, she published another international thriller, ‘Havana Mystery.’ The fictional novella is more than a simple mystery as it takes place in 1950′s pre-Castro Havana, Cuba, and is based on real events. After reading letters and non-fiction accounts about Havana, she felt compelled to capture the time, place, and interesting characters in a fast-paced, suspenseful story. It brings to life the people who converged in Havana in droves to experience rum-fueled abandon like nowhere else at the time, unaware of the dangers that lurked beneath the surface. There’s Castro, the mob, criminals, and the locals, who were experiencing the heart-wrenching changes Castro was inflicting upon them. Now available in paperback at lulu.com.
In 2011 she published her first children’s picture book, ‘Spartacus Sprout, Please Watch Out!’which she also illustrated. It is popular with children ages 3 to 11, and recently sold out at her first book signing. It has 3 rhyming stories that are designed to entertain children as they help build high self-esteem. Published by lulu.com in paperback, available at Amazon.com.

Ohio Quilt Barn Design Paintings
I’m pleased to announce my new art work is now for sale online. The beautiful simplicity and symmetry of the Quilt Barn designs appealed to me so much, I created some that can easily be used at home. They are 1′ x 1′ canvas squares painted with official Quilt Barn Trail designs that can easily be hung on a front door, porch, kitchen, or children’s room. They are light-weight, come with a hanging wire attached in the frame of the back, and are sealed with polyurethane. All my designs can be viewed or purchased online at Kathy’s store on etsy.com linked to photos below.
