I write under the pen name Kathleen Cochran. As a novelist, poet, and former newspaper reporter and editor, I write from my experiences traveling the world and raising a family as a soldier's better half. I've called Germany and Saudi Arabia home and traveled to five continents. My six books are available as E-books and paperbacks on Amazon.
WISH (I wish God would change His mind) - is my first children's book. Walking into my father-in-law's funeral, my eight-year-old son said these words. It's taken me a long time to put them on paper. The result is this book - an attempt at helping a child find his/her way through their first loss in life.
Lord, Lord - is my first mystery. It is the story of a woman who dies and goes to Heaven, only to find out that she was murdered. "Whodunit" is solved by her learning who does and does not show up in Heaven besides her. This book has been nominated for Mystery of the Year by the Georgia Writers Association.
MY WAR - is a non-fiction account of living in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia during Desert Shield/Desert Storm 1990-91.
I am honored to announce "My War" is being used as a resource for a new work by Captain Al Barnes,“Desert Uniforms, Patches, and Insignia of the U.S. Armed Forces 1975-2012” by Schiffer Publishing LTD of Atglen PA.
TAKE THIS MAN - is the story of three women who were married to the same soldier at different times during his life. They meet at his funeral. Intimacies are shared. Sparks fly. And in the end, they learn more about him and each other than they would have ever expected.
A Working Title Memory - is the story of a woman who has recently lost her mother. In sorting through her memories, she receives a brand new one from a most unlikely source.
These Lines - is a collection of poetry, simple yet vivid.
LORD, LORD; MY WAR and TAKE THIS MAN are included in the Henry Grady College of Journalism Reading Room along with the works of other GEORGIA graduates.
