Pregnant with Twins: Weeks 24-26

22 July, 2017

Since I am constantly scouring the web for info on these later weeks of twin pregnancy, I thought I should share what they have been like for me, should some other lucky mom troll the interwebs for commiseration.

It’s Finally Here + Giveaway

10 July, 2017

Lots of writers compare publishing a book to a baby being born, and it fits so well since there is a lot of effort and uncertainty, some painful labor, and then, a lot of well wishes.

And like a baby being born, a book deserves a special Birth Announcement, so consider this post it.  Yay! My book is finally here! 

You can order it here at Amazon.

If you are local, there will be a book launch party at RiverRun book store in Portsmouth, NH on July 18, 2017. We will have wine and beer and I will be making a few recipes that are in the book (Red Wine Beef Stew and Lamb Curry).

WHO: Author Katie Curtis (your neighbor at 79 Tidewater) 

WHAT: Book Launch Party for The Wideness of the Sea

I have been blown away by the amount of messages from …

(Not a bad summer menu at all). So in these slow, lovely days, I …
