KATHLEEN MIX: As an avid sailor and licensed charter boat captain, Kathleen and her husband have spent many years roaming the Southern U.S. coastline, exploring the Bahamas, and enjoying the tropical islands of the Caribbean and the offshore islands of South America. They have cruised as far north as Gloucester, Massachusetts and as far south as Puerto La Cruz, Venezuela, east to Trinidad and Tobago, and west to Curacao. Kathy began her writing career with non-fiction articles. But one day, while anchored in Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands, the boat rocking gently in the trade winds, she began writing about a charter yacht crewed by a salty captain and a land-lubber chef. That novel, A Trade Wind Season, was released by Avalon Books two years later. Since then, she has written four romantic suspense novels, the first two of which were published by The Wild Rose Press, Secret Stranger (2007) and Deadly Paradise (2008). Beyond Paradise was released in April 2010 from Samhain Publishing. Kathleen's latest book is River of Fear, released July 2011 from The Wild Rose Press.
