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.

What’s New with Katy and Grace?

Dog Days of Summer

I recently held a book launch for my new book, Humble Yet Fierce: My Life Behind the Curtain of the CIA. It was a wonderful party filled with friends, family, neighbors and many former colleagues. It was a night of reconnecting with important people in my life. I didn’t want to end.

The celebration was held in the Glory Days Grill in Falls Church, Virginia. It was a sweet reminder of the book signing we did a few years ago to celebrate the Everybody Loves Grace series. The only difference this time was Grace wasn’t there to greet everyone, work the room, and find yummy bits of food on the floor.

It’s hard to believe the dog days of the summer of 2023 are almost over. I wanted to remind readers to take advantage of the 20% off every Everybody Loves Grace book through the end of August.

I hope everyone enjoys the end of summer and that our kids and teachers have a wonderful school year.

With Love, Katy

Humble Yet Fierce

My newest book, Humble Yet Fierce: My Life Behind the Curtain of the CIA, is dedicated to Grace for helping me find my voice. When I started telling Grace’s stories, I had no idea they would lead me to writing my story.

Often, we want to speak up, but we don’t, gripped by fear and the need to get along. The reality is, it’s hard to find our voice: and then one day we do.

Like the Everybody Loves Grace stories, I bring my true-life stories of courage, faith, and adventure related to that journey. From the life-changing events in my first year of college to my career in the CIA, I share that you don’t have to be loud to be strong.

It’s only fitting that Grace is on the cover of the book with me as I am often reminded how Grace epitomized being Humble Yet Fierce. You can read about Grace in Part 8: Find Your Voice.

If you are interested in ordering the book, you can  buy it on Amazon.

Grace’s Legacy Lives On

Dear Friends and Grace Followers,

I have struggled with how to share the news of Grace’s passing. This is a post I never wanted to write but knew that it was inevitable. Death is a part of the cycle of life.

Grace lived with such a strong spirit until the bitter end, and then she let me know it was time. She was as dignified in death as she was in life.

I am grateful she shared her life with me and with all of you through her stories. She brought joy, adventure and love to everyone she met for 16 years.

I plan to write book seven of the Everybody Loves Grace series. In her parting message, Grace asked me to share her story that we are never too old for a new adventure. She also wanted to remind us to love and live every day to the fullest.

Much Love, Katy

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...

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.
