    About “Kathleen Ernst

    • Kathleen Ernst

      I grew up in Maryland, in a house full of books Both of my parents were avid readers, thank goodness Before we traveled to a new area, my librarian mom used to bring home historical novels set in that place It was a great way to get excited about history.I began writing stories when I was maybe 10 or 11 At 15 I wrote my first novel I sold my first novel to a publisher 20 years later Writing was my hobby, so during those two decades I just kept practicing, reading, writing some What a thrill to finally hold my first book in my hand Still, I write because I enjoy the process at least most of the time.For years I wrote while working at other day jobs I spent 12 years working at a huge historic site, which was a perfect spot for someone interested in historical fiction I also developed and scripted instructional videos for public television Finally, though, it got to be too much to juggle I now write full time, and consider myself enormously fortunate to do something I love.

    • Surprisingly, this mystery actually ties in with one of Kit s short stories But all you need to know is explained in the first chapter This is probably the closest that the American Girls will get to exploring Appalachia, which is kind of a shame It seemed like it did a fairly good job of it, though.


    • This was pretty well done there is a bit of a mystery, but it s also a nice picture of what life was like in the Appalachian mountains during the depression As usual with American Girl, heavily seeded with a nice it s fun to be helpful message.


    • This is probably my favorite book out of the Kit Mystery books It has an awesome plot, and I would never have guessed who had been ruining the trip for Kit and Aunt Millie I d definitely recommend it.


    • Not my favorite of the AG mysteries but still fun to read with my 8 year old Some of the sentence structure and vocabulary is at a higher reading level than my daughter is at, and the Kentucky turns of phrase don t help much either Nice book but we re moving onto another easier series.


    • My 2nd Grade daughter and I love sharing these American Girl mysteries together This one was a lot of fun and my daughter and I enjoyed talking about the setting together.



    • Mystery and mountain basket craft appreciation combined to make this a winner Kits experiences in Kentucky paralleled much we have experienced in North Caroline and Tennessee.



    • Harkening back to Nancy Drew, this American Girl mystery was cute even though I had it solved half way through HA.





    • l loved that this tied to Aunt Millie Rides Again, from the extended set of short stories This is a whole new environment for Kit, and a really nice read.
