Thereâ€™s never a dull moment in the Yâ€™Barbo household! From hockey and cheer mom to publicist to bestselling author, Kathleen Yâ€™Barbo somehow manages to do it all – and well. While wearing her publicistâ€™s hat, Kathleen has secured interviews with radio, television, and print media for clients at NavPress, Hatchette, Integrity, Barbour Publishing, and Broadman & Holman, to name a few. She also brings her own unique blend of Southern charm and witty prose to the more than 350,000 award-winning novels and novellas currently in print. Her novels have been nominated for American Christian Fiction Writers Book of the Year in 2002, 2003, 2004, and 2006; and 2007 will see the release of her 25th book.

Kathleen is a former treasurer for the American Christian Fiction Writers, and is a member of the Authorâ€™s Guild, Inspirational Writers Alive, Words for the Journey Christian Writers Guild, and the Fellowship of Christian Authors. In addition, she is a sought-after speaker, and her kids think sheâ€™s a pretty cool mom, tooâ€¦most of the time, anyway.
