Havana Mystery

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.

Check out her reviews of today’s best selling books and buy them from her book store.  In her blogs she writes about everything from how to worry less  to advice on relationships.  You may contact Kathy at email kathpfeiff@fuse.net.  Follow her on twitter at KathWrites.

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.  I’ve also created cute tote bags and hand-painted ‘Do Not Disturb’ signs.  All my designs can be viewed or purchased by clicking on the link to my store below.

  1. Ran across your ad. The picture of the spiraling “temple” has some misidentification. It is not Mormon (or, more correctly, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints), nor is it the temple that the Prophet Joseph Smith prophesied (yet to be built). The one you pictured was built by the Community of Christ, a group that splintered away from the LDS church many, many years ago. Sounds like you have an interesting life! Cheers, Alan

  2. Thanks Alan! Readers, he is referring to comments I made in my report on “Family in Independence,” above (see under categories), where I share discoveries I made in researching my family history (McCoys) in Independence, MO.

  3. Hello,

    Regarding your post about the McCoy family history, I wonder if the research of the three women who compiled that information (Miss Eleanor Minor, Miss Margaret Woodson, and Mrs. Emory Write) has been continued. The grandfather of the three women worked for Waldo, Hall & Co., and thus they employed a relative of mine, and so I would like to see if those who know of the research of the three women would be able to provide information on my relative. Can you help?

    Thank you,

  4. Hi Brian,
    What was the name of the relative of yours? I know some people in Independence who are doing a lot of research on the people who lived there. What is the name of the grandfather of the three ladies.
