Hi! My name is Grace.

Welcome to my site.

I am glad you are here because I love having visitors, whether it is in real life or on the Internet.

I am over 10 years old and live with Mommy in Colorado. That is a state in the western part of the United States. It has lots of mountains with days of sunshine and days of snow. One of my favorite things is going to our friend’s house in the mountains.

The way I see it, life is an adventure.

I have had a lot of adventures in my life. You can read about some of them in Everybody Loves Grace, books 1, 2, and 3!

Loving people is another one of my favorite things.

Everyone needs love. I look into the eyes of every person I meet so they can feel the love I have for them. They like to pet me, and I like it too. And sometimes, I give them my paw to say hi.

Even when I am not sure what will happen next, I find the fun and the good in everything I do and in everyone I meet. It certainly makes life more interesting!

I hope you like my site.

Please join me on my very first adventure.

Lovingly yours,

A special dog. A heartwarming story.

Let There Be Magic in 2024

It seems hard to believe I was saying goodbye to Grace at this time last year. She was such a big part of my life and I miss her every day. That said, I’ve come to realize the beauty of Grace living on through her books.

At least once a week I get a picture from a parent who wants to share about the special connection their child has with Grace. A connection they make through her stories.

I wish I could share with you all the emails, phone calls and text messages I receive. They come from people who are truly her fans. The sweet photo below came to me this week from a family in Maryland.

Recently, I was driving to meet a 5-year-old, Amelia, because she wanted to meet Grace’s mommy. I reminded myself on the way to meet her that “this is a joyous occasion.” I am so lucky to connect with young readers who absolutely adore Grace.

This is a long way of saying, there’s beauty and joy even in difficult times, we must look for it. The beauty I see is connecting with each of you and knowing Grace lives on through the Everybody Loves Grace books.

My hope for all of you is to find the magic in simple things in life and the holiday season.

Merry Christmas, Katy

I’m excited to share that my new book, “Humble Yet Fierce: My Life Behind the Curtain of the CIA,” is officially published. When I headed off to college in 1979, I couldn’t have imagined that one day I would be writing books and delivering speeches about leadership.

Yet it’s here, a book with some of my life stories and lessons learned about work and leadership during my thirty-two year career in the CIA.
