Kathleen Y'Barbo Turner: Website : http://kathleenybarbo.com
She has written over 80 books and won a ton of awards, though there’s still way too much room on her award shelf in my humble opinion. She’s won a RITA and been a Carol award nominee. Over one million copies of her books are currently in print in the US and abroad and translated into Dutch, German and Spanish.
She graduated from Texas A&M and holds a BBA from the University’s Mays Business School and a certification in Paralegal Studies.
And if that wasn’t enough, she’s a 10th generation Texan with four grown children and seven bonus kids she inherited when she married her hero in combat boots. More on that story. (I was in on that! Linda Kozar)
