About Me and My Adventures in Publishing

Welcome to my adventures in publishing, where I share my experiences as an independent author with all its frustrations and glory. I'm not a nurse who writes but a writer who happens to be a nurse. A lover of words and books, I dreamed of becoming an author when I grew up, but became a nurse to avoid poverty. I later brought my two passions together and write about the intricate lives of people struggling with health and family issues. My stories are clean family fiction, free of overt, graphic sexuality, violence and objectionable language

To keep my writing load to a minimum, I often host friends and fellow authors who are also trying to make it in the publishing world. Look for New Release Spotlights, Cover Reveals, Interviews, blog tours and sales. Disclaimer: featured titles and authors may not follow the clean family fiction model. Buyer beware!

I am also a founding member of AlzAuthors, a collaboration of authors sharing resources for those living with dementia and their caregivers. I feature authors writing in this so important genre weekly (and sometimes more.)
My debut novel Blue Hydrangeas, an Alzheimer’s love story is a Kindle bestseller, IndieReader Approved, a Library Journal Self-e Selection, and a BookWorks featured book. It's available in paperback and audiobook on Amazon. 

My latest release Swim Season, is the fast-paced drama driven story of Olympic hopeful Aerin Keane, starting senior year in her third high school and trying NOT to win. But can she hide her natural talent and competitive streak? Especially with a 50,000-dollar scholarship on the line?  Young Adult fiction, available in paperback and Kindle on Amazon. 

I've also published two short stories in Kindle and audio.

A native Bostonian, I live in New York’s Hudson Valley, and when not writing work as a campus nurse at a community college. I love books, the beach, and craft beer, and especially enjoy the three of them together.

Author Interrupted

Bunky Press

One of the wonderful things about being an independent author is that I get to start my own imprint. Bunky Press is named after my father, Ted Kasica, who passed away in 1976 and is not forgotten by anyone who loved him. Here's my logo, and a brief article about my dad, the fisherman, written by my brother Kenn Kasica. Enjoy! It's a great read. The cast out, the bite, the reel in – 35 years later.
