"Nadine Laman's Kathryn's Beach is a very well written story about human pain and tragedy and the ability to not only survive but to learn to live again." — Reviewed by Cherie Fisher for Reader Views
"I thoroughly enjoyed reading Kathryn's Beach - it's an easy, deep read. What I expected to happen, didn't. What happened, I didn't expect. Laman manages to keep the suspense up throughout the book very successfully. It was hard to put it down because I wanted to keep turning the pages to find out what happened next. I can guarantee, the ending of Kathryn's Beach will definitely make you want to read the sequel High Tide." — Irene Watson, US Author of The Sitting Swing
"Kathryn's Beach reminds me why I like to read." — Terrie Berg

Kathryn's Beach (1st book of the trilogy)
Kathryn abruptly ends a self-imposed five year exile to return to Los Angeles. Friends and a cryptic letter written by a powerful man push Kathryn to reconcile a deadly mistake from the past. Who says, "You can't go home again?" Sometimes that is exactly what must be done. But, is it worth it?
Nadine was born and raised in Los Angeles County, California, during the turbulent winds of social unrest - which explains the eternally optimistic belief that we can have a better world. She graduated from Arizona State University School of Social Work at a time when social work was a vehicle of social change that could not be ignored.
In the tradition of Irish storytellers' wit, humor, tragedy, tongue-in-cheek satire, her characters' strengths and weaknesses are exposed to further explore the human drama in which we live. Nadine prefers to write in a personal voice for the protagonist - a much more enjoyable style for herself - and, she hopes for you. She currently lives in Phoenix, Arizona.
