This then became the hardcover edition available at,, and Barnes and Noble stores.

Kathleen Blease’s Summary
(please visit for further details) 

From 1987-1991, I was fortunate to learn book editing from the "old school" editors, who worked closely with authors to develop manuscripts with depth and focus. From 1991 to 2003, I ran my own freelance service called Ghosts and Edits. My specific skills were ghost writing, developmental editing, and rewriting various nonfiction adult trade titles, from a variety of experts. Topics ranged from home improvements to finance to parenting. During this time, I also co-authored THE FISKE GUIDE TO COLLEGES with NY Times Education Editor, Edward B. Fiske for several years. I also published 5 gift books with Ballantine Books--such as LOVE IN VERSE: CLASSIC POEMS OF THE HEART--all of which stayed in print and on the publisher's backlist for 12 years. LOVE IN VERSE made the Boston Book Review's bestsellers list. In addition, a collaboration with painter Thomas Kinkade resulted in several gift books.

In 2003, I began homeschooling our children in the light of the Catholic Faith, using a classical method and studying Christian Latin. Today, as we continue with homeschooling, I also write KATHLEEN'S CATHOLIC: HOW GRACE DRIZZLES IN, a daily blog that features my original articles and my husband's photography. I am also the author of I CAN'T WAIT TO MEET MY DADDY a gift book for expectant dads.
