Welcome to Kathleen Kirkwood's Home Page
A golden warrior of the North,
A beautiful heiress and pawn of the king,
Love unexpected, bringing peril to all,
As Norse and Frank meld into a new people — the Normans.
Their love will burn brightly through all the ages to come . . .
I'm delighted to announce the release of The Valiant Heart, the first book of my HEART trilogy and winner of RWA's Golden Heart Award. Bowing to the wisdom of placing all works under a single name, please note that my "Anita Gordon" novels will now appear under the name "Kathleen Kirkwood." Hopefully, this will give the trilogy better discoverability and less confusion for you, dear reader.
Take a peek! The prologue and the first three chapters of the newly revised edition of THE VALIANT HEART are available for free download on the Valiant Heart Sample Page.
The first 4 chapters of A SLIP IN TIME, SHADES OF THE PAST and HIS FAIR LADY are also available for free download on the Kathleen Kirkwood Sampler Page.
