BriefingWire.com, 2/04/2015 - Seattle, WA.—On February 7, 2015, from 2-4 p.m., Barnes and Noble in Southlake, TX, will sponsor a book launch for Kathleen M. Rodgers’ novel, Johnnie Come Lately ($14.95, 292 pp., ISBN: 978-1-60381-215-3), released by Camel Press on February 1st. Despite an outwardly happy existence as a wife and mother, Johnnie Kitchen yearns for a way to fulfill her dreams and end her nightmares. Kathleen will also be signing copies of her first novel, The Final Salute.

The bookstore is located at 1430 Plaza Place, Southlake, TX 76092 (817-442-0207).

Rodgers is the winner of the 2009 MWSA Silver Medal Award for Fiction and the 2010 William E. Mayer Literary Award. Her first novel, The Final Salute, was featured in USA Today, The Associated Press, and Military Times. It reached #1 on Amazon’s Top-Rated War Fiction list and was a Book of the Month selection for the Army Wife Network.

“Kathleen M Rodgers book is truly an inspiration to anyone who has gone through an eating disorder …. Johnnie Come Lately is a great book. It’s a little hard to read this and not feel for the characters.” —Sharon Salituro, Fresh Fiction

“Rodgers’ characters—from Johnnie Kitchen to her lovable chocolate lab, Brother Dog—will jump off the page, grab your heart, and not let it go until the very end.” —Terri Barnes, author of Spouse Calls: Messages From a Military Life and columnist for Stars and Stripes

“Kathleen M. Rodgers masterfully unfolds the faded, damaged petals of her flawed characters to reveal their glorious essence in this gripping story about the soul’s risk and its inevitable redemption.”

—Parris Afton Bonds, New York Times bestselling author

Would Johnnie’s life be different if she’d been named after a woman instead of her dead uncle? Or if her mama hadn’t been so beautiful or flighty? The grandparents who raised her were loving, but they didn’t understand the turmoil roiling within her. And they had so many, many secrets. Now Johnnie has a loving family of her own … but also her own secrets.

Says the author, “I know so many women who reach a point in their lives when they realize they've been living for others and not themselves. They have unfulfilled dreams and unfinished business, and it will eat at their souls unless they do something about it. I hope readers will connect with Johnnie Kitchen, with all her flaws and passion for life. She is wounded, but she has never stopped fighting. By confronting her demons, she finds a way to really live for the first time.”

Kathleen M. Rodgers’ stories and essays have appeared in numerous magazines and anthologies. Johnnie Come Lately is her second novel. She lives in a suburb of North Texas with her husband, a retired fighter pilot/commercial airline pilot, and their dog, Denton. For more information, go to www.kathleenmrodgers.com.
