The story of Kacee Marie Havemeier Robinson and her personal journey into a life she thought she knew. Her own life.

Who am I?

I’m a single mom to an amazing young woman. I was born and raised in north central Texas. My stories tend to delve further into the darker parts of the human psyche, while retaining a good bit of the Southern charm my grandmother taught me to embrace.  I’m a firm believer that words have the power to change us, either for the good or for the bad.  I have a responsibility to you, the reader, to ensure each story is crafted with diligence, care, and a good bit of anxiety-producing moments.

I enjoy a wide variety of literature, from true crime, to women’s fiction to a great literary fiction novel. Some of my “go to authors” include Elizabeth Flock, Freida McFadden, and Christina McDonald. I welcome your thoughts and feedback. I have the most fantastic writing partners and encourage all new writers to make this an essential part of the process. None of us is successful without a community of supporters. Thank you for being part of my family! Happy reading, happy living. Each day on this earth is a gift, my friends.
