Kate Somerset is a pen name for the author, who three years ago, moved from Texas to New York City. After her 24-year marriage ended, she decided to pick up stakes and take a chance on a second chapter in Manhattan. Embracing living in the Northeast, Kate sees every opportunity as an adventure. She revels in the sights and sounds, life in a high-rise building, and the fun and madness of dating again after so many years. Although Kate misses her family, friends and eating Texas salsa, New York has opened many new doors for growing, learning, laughter, and love.
