About My Books

The Adventures of Arnie Armadillo in the State of Texas is Kathy's big debut. What began as an idea for a series of stories for her grandchildren slowly became an excellent resource for elementary and middle school teachers.  Her first series is about the geography and wildlife of Texas.  Her second series is about the men and women who helped Texas become first a republic and then a state.
