American Girl
Chloe Stories
Fall Sneak Peak 
Email Header


I traveled a lot over the summer, and loved the opportunity to meet readers at various events around the country. Huge thanks to all of you who came out -- and also to the many readers who took the time to write, post an online review, or connect on my blog or Facebook page. I appreciate you all!

Goldenrod blooming in the yard of author Kathleen Ernst. After a particularly nice summer, there are some early signs of fall here in Wisconsin. Goldenrod is flowering, nights are growing chilly, hummingbirds are migrating, and some trees are starting to turn.

This is one of my favorite times of the year, and it's book release season!  


American Girl

Catch The Wind:
My Journey With Caroline
American Girl released my newest book, Catch the Wind: My Journey With Caroline, in late August. It's my 8th Caroline book. It's also my first time travel book, and my first choose-your-own-ending book!

Catch the Wind is available as a paperback and for e-book apps and readers, including Barnes & Noble Nook and Amazon Kindle.

In other news, American Girl has just re-branded the initial six Caroline books and released them in two volumes: Captain of the Ship and Facing the Enemy.

As a result, the original Caroline Six Book Boxed Set is now out-of-print. It's been replaced with a new boxed set that includes Catch the Wind and the two volumes.

Chloe Stories

The fifth novel in my Chloe Ellefson Historic Sites mystery series, Tradition of Deceit, has been sent to the printer!

The official release date is November 8th. Printed copies can be pre-ordered now, and e-Book versions will be out in November.
I can't wait to share it with Chloe fans!

In other news, my husband and partner in crime (aka "Mr. Ernst") has just upgraded my website with a treasure trove of details about the people, places, and the past that I've woven into each of the Chloe books -- including Tradition of Deceit.

You can make virtual visits to key scenes, get recipes and discussion guides, learn about objects that appear in the stories, watch videos, hear interviews, and read book reviews and blog posts about aspects of the novels.

Fall Sneak Peak
Between launch activities for Tradition of Deceit and writing the sixth Chloe book (due out fall 2015), the rest of my year is going to be very busy. An almost-final list of my remaining events this year can be found on my online Calendar page. I'll send an email in few weeks with final details and a map.

I hope the next few months bring you many colorful fall days -- and lots of opportunities to read!

Warm regards,
