As Ann Carberry, Child has western historical romances while as Kathleen Kane, she has written Americana romances and western paranormal romances. She also appears as Sarah Hart where she wrote an impressive western telepathic romance novel.

One of her books as Ann Carberry is Frontier Bride, a western historical romantic novel that features Dakota Lane and Ben Cable. Dakota Lane is a beautiful woman who is in search for the person who robbed her family. Ben Cable is a handsome man who is Red Creek’s sheriff. He is not only arrogant but also protective. He refuses to let Dakota embark alone on the search for the robber. They embark on the journey together but they are both wary of each other. On their journey to California, they start becoming attracted to each other.

As Kathleen Kane, Maureen Child has written This Time for Keeps’; a time-travel romance novel with so much humor and a bit of mystery. The novel features Tracy Hill who has had so much misfortune in her eight lives. Tracy goes to a date with a handsome lawyer in her law firm at a bowling alley and unfortunately gets into an accident and is at the verge of death. Tracy is now on her eighth life and about to lose it. She negotiates with the heavenly Resettlement Committee for a long life free from love’s complications saying, “If you can’t guarantee that I won’t fall in love, the least you can do is to let me remember why I shouldn’t”. Tracy also requests that she keeps the memories of her past lives. To her surprise, she awakens as Nora Wilding, a very bold and outspoken woman who is a ranch owner in Montana during 1875. As Sarah Hart, Maureen has only written a single book Whispers of Heaven’ which is a western telepathic romance novel. She has since stopped writing books under the penname Sarah Hart and mainly uses Kathleen Kane, Ann Carberry or her real name.

Maureen Child has written several novels under her real name with most of the books being short and contemporary novels for Silhouette Desire books. According to her, she so loves to write the Silhouette Desire books since the stories are short and quick to write which, according to her, gives her extra bits if inspiration. She also writes comical, modern telepathic romances for N.A.L and darker telepathic stories for Silhouette Nocturne. She prefers the phrase pseudonym’ to alias’. Maureen has also written series and is currently writing a series called The Bachelor Battalion’. It is about U.S. Marines and the people they love.

Maureen wrote this book as Kathleen Kane. The book features Rebecca Hale, a widow and ranch owner living in Colarado. She is struggling to raise her young son and cannot afford to allow any distraction from any man. She meets Zacariah, a handsome and mysterious soul collector who is also kind and respectful. Rebecca is so protective of her heart and is not ready to open up to love. Zacariah is very kind and compassion to Rebecca’s son. This is so worrying for Rebecca who begins to get attracted to this mysterious man. With just a kiss, Rebecca is unable to resist the charm of Zacariah and ends up falling in love with him. Zacarial on the other hand, a soul collector also finds himself falling in love with Rebecca.

While attending the Texas set to watch the characters in her book, Maureen was included into the final scene by her husband who is the producer. Maureen and her husband thought that by including her into the final scene, it would surely be a fun way to debase an author. Maureen Child has been married to her husband for many years and they have two children. During her leisure time, Child loves to travel and her favorite vacation spots are Ireland and Scotland. Maureen and her husband both love road trip. Child has a desire to drive to Ireland one day. She also has a Golden Retriever who goes by the name Abbey. She recently moved to the mountains of Utah with her family and is adjusting to having deer in the yard and snow on the road.

While she may appear to no longer be actively involved in writing, the timelessness of her work is something that will ensure every generation to come will find some sort of inspiration. It is for this reason why those who have had a chance to read her books are always looking for another read.
