About Me

Hello there! Thank you so much for visiting my blog!

This is the page where I tell you a little about me. Possibly a lot about me. So here it goes!

My name is Kathleen Smith. I was born and raised in Brooklyn,NY.   I am the third Italian generation for pr blogon my dad’s side born here in the USA and the third Irish, Italian and English generation on my mom’s side born here in the USA.

I am the youngest of two daughters. Growing up I loved spending time with my family.

I now live in UpState NY with my husband, our kids and our dog. I still love spending time with my family, but now that family is my husband and kids.

I spend a bunch of my time on my laptop promoting my books and blog. When I’m not doing that I’m cleaning my house or spending time with my family.

I have been a self published author for six years now. Funny thing about that is, If anyone had asked me growing up if I ever thought I would become an author, I would have laughed. Here I am now an author and a blogger! Who would have thought! NOT ME!

I technically have three books published now. My first and second books are almost the same. The first book which is on miscarriages is title Marriages & Miscarriages : One Woman’s Personal Experience. The revised version of this book is Miscarriage My Story. My third book is called Brooklyn Raised / Livin’ Upstate. All my books are memoirs.

My books on miscarriages are about how I managed to get through three miscarriages, keep my marriage together and how I kept my relationship with God strong at the same time. My miscarriages happened in the first ten years of my marriage. I wasn’t the only one who was effect by my miscarriages. My husband was too. You can read all about it in my books. You can find bookcoverstorythe first and revised edition of my books on their page,here on my blog. I am thankful to know that my books have been able to help other women all over the world to get through their own miscarriages.



My Brooklyn book has been written in three sections. The first part is titled Growing Up in Brooklyn. In this part I talk about what it was like for me growing up in Brooklyn. How I spent time with my family. Our vacations. What it was like for me going to work with my mom and a bunch of other stuff. The second part is titled Living in Upstate. In this part I share what it was liking for me moving to Upstate NY. How it was so different. What it’s like living in Upstate. The winter weather. The Upstate Book CoverCountry Fairs and such. The last part of my book is titled Good-bye Mom. The last part of this book was hard for me to write. Most of it was written after my mom passed away from cancer. I’m glad I wrote it though. In this part of my book you will read about how much I loved my mom and all the things we did together.

All of my books can be found on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
