It is famously said that life begins at forty, but for Kathi S. Barton, fifty was the new forty. And talking of beginnings, it would be fair enough to judge this author who believes so much in telling whether a story is right from its beginnings by the ability to keep you glued to her dark fantasy novels from start to finish. The awards won by Kathi notwithstanding she began writing for entertainment purpose and for that ability to transport herself to the world we could not comprehend. For that, we acknowledge her prowess and profile her to satisfy our curiosity.
Kathi S. Barton is a creative who was raised in Covington, Kentucky in a beautiful family in whose care she had a childhood that she describes as “not so great”. This must have created a void that cried out to be filled with love going by the way she weaves romance into dark fantasy erotic paranormal novels. Kathy did spend her life in some hustles and managed to scale the corporate ladder to head of security before handing in the resignation letter and picking a hobby that would take her mind off chronic depression and lifelong pills.
This talented writer stumbled upon writing in the most unexpected of ways. Once, while attending therapy sessions for attempted suicide, she was encouraged to journal her activities and feelings daily. The action was supposed to help her put her weeks in perspective and when she noticed that she had a particular trend of writing down depressing thoughts she switched the habit to making up a better world for her then lonely self.
Creating a utopic world came naturally to Kathi, she could endure the stress of having to bang on a computer for endless hours much more quickly than reflecting on her disease. She prefers bringing up several concepts of a book at any given time and letting the goddesses of writing guide her to the best project to pursue at any given time. She has been recorded to suddenly overcome the writer’s block in the middle of the night and pick up her books under the Muse tutelage.
Kathi is a firm believer in love, never mind what her scary novels say, and is married to a man whom she describes as a “best friend for several lifetimes,” no pun intended with the suicidal attempt. Together with the potter husband they have succeeded in seeing three children through life who in turn rewarded then with several grandchildren. Creation, they lovingly refer to as world treasures. Other than looking after family they occasionally camp and love participating in auctions.
Ever since Kathi started quelling the voices in her head with her paranormal stories in the year 2009. She has grown to defend her specialty with a series of engaging novels culminating in her win of the Pinnacle Book Achievement Award and cementing this with best-selling author titles on Amazon and All Romance books. Kathi indeed strikes you as that person who has had a real life encounter with vampires, magic, and romance.
Among the novels written by Kathi are; Elijah: Calhoun men, Landon: Justice Series, Steel: Justice Series, and Kenton: the McCade Dragon. Throughout these creations, what consistently stand great is the amazing ability which Kathi uses to bring paranormal romance into near real life experiences. In Landon: Justice series, for example, she brings out Landon as this neglected child who is portrayed as speaking to his grandfather’s ghosts but falls in love in a very humanly way with Dillon.
In Aarons Kiss series, which consists of fourteen books, Kathi takes us through the world of Sara Temple, who falls head over heels in love with the handsome vampire Aaron MacManus, going to the extent of even giving up her life with the pretense of saving her boss. This love story spans centuries, and the theme is repeated in all the fourteen books. In natural magic a third book in the series, jealousy is a powerful idea that helps keep the love between Dominic and Sara.
In the force of nature series, Kathi creates this world revolving around CJ who suffers childhood rejection upon the death of her mother. She develops a go-getter mentality and is strongly attracted to Austin, who is an Alpha male and has had the desire of owning Webbers’, CJ’s father, house. This plot takes us through the desires and motivations of the two as each struggles to drive their point while at the same time obeying the dictates of love.
Kathi also creates the Harrison Ambush series in which she keeps up glued to the epic battle of wit between Riordan Harrison and Stormie. Riordan does the honorable deed and claims stormie as his, but this sparks bad memories and Stormie reacts in the most uninviting of ways. Riordan becomes the laughing stock of his mates and fellow employees but things suddenly take a turn for the worse when Stormie is targeted for assassination for roles played in the war.
We do not know how deep Kathi went with chronic major depression but given that she had made an attempt at her own life we really do feel for her. Just imagine what book lovers could have lost had the forward thinking therapist not committed her to doing a weekly review of her life. The amazing gift with words that Kathi has is a once in a lifetime opportunity that has gone on to create an entirely new genre in the world of storytelling.
Ever since Kathi started banging her computers to wide acclaim, she has not shown any signs of slowing down. She sticks to the mantra of starting out on any project you desire even if it means writing it down in longhand as she first had to do with her creative pieces. Kathi loves to watch drama films at the moment, and we do hope that she is not taken away by that desire of blowing glass and working in a greenhouse. She is too out of the ordinary to be snatched off our reading desires.
