I'm Kathleen, Welcome to Metaphor Writing Coach I work with new and experienced writers
My Sherlock Holmes Quiz Book was updated and reissued by Rowman & Littlefield Publishing Group and released on November 1, 2020. I founded The Dogs in the Nighttime, the Sherlock Holmes Society of Anacortes, Washington, a scion of The Baker Street Irregulars. While marketing director for Cave Art Press, my collection of blog posts was published under the title, Do You Have a Catharsis Handy? Five-Minute Writing Tips. Catharsis won the Chanticleer International Book Award in the nonfiction Instruction and Insights category. When I am not writing, I spend much of my time with my husband traveling the back roads and byways around the country, looking for new venues for my mysteries, and bird watching along the Texas coast and beyond. My passion for birds led to the publication The Man Who Saved the Whooping Crane: The Robert Porter Allen Story (University Press of Florida).
TIPS TO GET STARTED
“Kathleen Kaska has been immensely helpful to my writing in more than one way over the years. From helping me in developing dialogue and incorporating an element of angst, as well as an assist with my grammar. I cannot think of a more excellent writing mentor.” —Mary Ann Birkbigler, Writer of Essays and Short Stories
