About Kacey Gene

Pretty much how writing and thinking about the holidays makes me feel!

Well, if you haven’t guessed by my Jennifer Hunter Holiday Mysteries, I love all holidays! Something about taking time to bake, to be with family, to play music or make crafts, and to (of course) read a good book that takes you on any adventure you could imagine, makes my soul smile with delight. Maybe it’s because I was raised in a small town that’s officially named the “Pumpkin Capital of the World,” or maybe it’s because in that small town people would take time to teach crafts like crocheting, candle-making, and baking the best pumpkin pie you can ever dream of. Either way, those small-town-home-town roots have stayed with me.

Even when I left for the city, and then for Europe, and then for Asia, and then for South America, I always found myself thinking back to those days of home and comfort. And that’s why I read books that return me to places and times when people helped one another and saw their neighbor as their friend. And even though I’ve landed in the Deep South, where everyday when I walk down the street there are smiles and “good mornings” exchanged, that small-town life is always folded up and tucked close to my heart. Yet, it unfolds and comes alive in my books, which I know will spark your adventurous, intelligent minds while keeping you as cozy as can be.

Stay tuned for more news about the upcoming books in the Jennifer Hunter Holiday Mystery series.
