Kat Tales” is the first compilation of short stories based on my childhood in Kansas City, Missouri. A tribute to my parents is included. My father, John J. Fischer Sr. while foreman for Kissick Construction Company, helped build our historic Union Station back in the early 1900s. Margaret Davis Fischer, my mother, worked as a Harvey Girl, hostess, and finally promoted to night manager of the upscale Fred Harvey restaurant. She was employed there from 1944 until the late 60s. Volume II of Kat Talers will follow in 2013. These connections to the past are the threads which we can all relate.
Under the pen-name of Katharine Carroll, I self-published “Rising From the Shards” in the month of November 2012. All reads and reviews are greatly appreciated. On December 28 & 29th I am offering it free. You don’t need a Kindle, download it onto your computer or phone.

The month of May, 2012 filled fast, the Oklahoma Writers Federation Inc. conference, the Master Gardner’s Tour, re-formatting my completed memoir for an agent and three publishers (verdict is still out) working on a Print on Demand digital compilation of my Kansas City Kat Tales and Poetry collection, yes, I will continue to attempt poetry. I joined a new writing group this week. It is now June.
