Terri’s endorsement for Johnnie Come Lately, forthcoming from Camel Press 2/1/15

“The Kitchen family could be any wholesome All-American family, and like any family, they have secrets. In Johnnie Come Lately, Kathleen Rodgers brings to life an extended family that could be yours or mine. Their secrets will draw you into this book, and Rodgers’ characters — from Johnnie Kitchen to her lovable chocolate lab, Brother Dog — will jump off the page, grab your heart, and won’t let it go until the very end.”

  1. Kathy, Can’t wait to read the published version of Johnnie! Your writing reflects the honest, vulnerable, and very strong person I know you to be! God’s blessings!

    1. Dear Elizabeth,

      Thank you so much for hopping over to my blog to read the story. And right after our great phone conversation!
      Congratulations to you on your new job. I can’t wait to hear all about it in Jan. when you start.
      I love that we’ve been friends all these years. Your support and encouragement has carried me through some
      dark days when I didn’t know if my novels would ever see the light of day.

      Much love my October friend,

      Kathy
