So said Shakespeare in "Taming of the Shrew," when Petruchio woos his Kate. There are a lot of us Kates around (Henry VIII married three of 'em, not to mention Prince William!), and now we have our own website: Kate-Book.com, a website for Kates, by Kates, and about Kates!

This month Kate-Book.com is launching a book club feature. I'm the first author being interviewed, so check it out!
