I have been telling stories for as long as I can remember, and wrote and illustrated my first story in the first grade. My life-long love of early American history can be traced back to the many family vacations up and down the east coast, where my Civil War buff father photographed me and my sisters perched on cannons at every major fort and battlefield from Canada to Virginia. I have since written seven novels, was a finalist in RWA's Golden Heart contest (with Winter Fire) and placed and won a number of chapter contests with a variety of historical and time travel novels.
I indulged my need to be creative in college by majoring in dramatic arts, pursued a short-lived acting career in the Big Apple, went on to earn an MFA in acting, got married, taught drama at a small all-girls liberal arts college in Indiana, moved around a bit, and then finally settled down and had two kids (now grown). Over the years, I dabbled in careers in advertising, children's media publishing, and higher education reform in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. A Bronx native, I spent my "Wonder Years" on Long Island and now live in central Connecticut with my teacher/director/playwright husband and three dogs. When not writing, I enjoy cooking, photography and computer graphics, tennis, gardening, classical and fold music, the New York Yankees, and the UConn women's basketball team.
When Ethan Caine pulled the unconscious woman from the half-frozen creek, he had no idea that his world was about to explode. Dressed in clothes of Iroquois design and on the run for a murder she might have committed, she stirred up dark secrets from his Indian fighting past. Yet she was everything he desired. He needed to know the truth.
He needed to find a way to trust her.
Banished by the Seneca who had adopted and raised her, ostracized by the whites in the settlement, Zara Grey wanted only to be accepted. "Ethancaine" treated her with kindness and concern. It was easy to trust him. But her Indian ways disturbed him, and in her heart she would always be Seneca.
"Reminiscent of 'Last of the Mohicans' with its raw, haunting mood, Winter Fire, by Kathy Fischer-Brown, is a compelling story of love and hate, acceptance, and forgiveness.
