Development Pitch

About The Author

I write what I call Travel/Romance Novels for Boomers. My favorite channel on TV is Hallmark Movies and Mysteries and my latest book is written like one of their Signature Mysteries. My name is Kileen Prather and I have a BS degree in History and a Masters in Library Science. I have been a Tour Manager for over twenty years, and up until this year, I usually travel in 35 to 40 states a year. This helps me with my settings which take place all over the country as well as Canada and the Caribbean. Even if traveling is not affordable to some, people still like to read about and/or dream of visiting different locales. And from what I have been told there is a whole generation of women who like to read, watch television, or movies with characters of their ages and issues. The subplot of the different traveling locales makes my novels unique. I am on Facebook and the link is: I also write a travel blog on Word Press with over 40 articles.
