Halloween Countdown Blitz - Day 5: Kate Empowered by Cindy M. Hogan
I’m a retired high school English teacher. A devourer of books growing up, my profession introduced me to writings and authors from times long past.
Through my studies and teaching, I fell in love with the Ancient and Medieval Worlds. Now, I hope to inspire young readers and those Young-at-Heart to read more through my Tales and Legends for Reluctant Readers set in these worlds.

When 15-year-old Rosa agrees to help the ghost of King Tut find his lost queen Hesena, she doesn't count on falling for him.
Once back in Ancient Egypt, Rosa discovers that finding Hesena if not all she must do and is not as easy as she thought it would be, even though she carries part of the lost queen in her soul. She must also keep out of the reach of the living Horemheb—who crosses mortal boundaries using Seth's evil magic—if she is to stay alive to make it back
Top Ten List:
1. Things I like to do when not writing:
I enjoy traveling, reading, spending time with my family, and working in the yard. I’m definitely not a housekeeper.
2. How I relax:
Sitting on the beach in Puerto Aventuras, Mexico!
3. My favorite color:
Blue’s always been my favorite color. It’s the color of my eyes, of the sky, and of the ocean.
4. My favorite drink:
Just can’t pass up a good margarita!
5. My favorite snack:
I devour nachos and Auntie Anne’s pretzels!
6. My your favorite movies:
Star Wars, The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter, and The Mummy. I’ve watched each of these so many times that I’ve lost track, and my husband shakes his head when he sees one on and says, “Really?” I just smile.
7. I am a night owl:
I don’t usually go to sleep until midnight, and now that I’m retired, I’m comfortable not seeing the sun come up in the morning:)
8. My favorite food:
That would be a smothered shredded beef burrito washed down with a good margarita.
9. My favorite authors:
I grab anything by the writing duo of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Childs, and I also love their individual books. David Baldacci’s books are also favorites. I’m addicted to blood & guts & spy thrillers!
10. If I could live anywhere, it would be in Colorado.
We have the best weather—All four seasons. I live next to the foothills, and a drive up in the Rockies is a cure for any ailment. I can see the world famous Red Rock Amphitheater from my couch, and if the wind is just right, we can hear the concerts. My immediate family is all here, except for one sister who lives in Texas, poor soul. In addition to being a retired teacher, I’m also a retired airline employee. So, when I need a change, it’s so easy just to hop a plane and go to the beach.
