The second novel for my Lake Shore Uni series, Midnight Rain, has just been released into the world, and I can't tell you enough how much I adore these characters! Bree, Jase and Eth, have literally taken over my life and I can't wait for them to take over yours too! Some early reviews have come in, and it's amazing to see that so far - you all feel the same about these awesome bestfriends!
"Kathleen Maree delivers another emotional punch with the Lakeshore University saga that leaves our hearts a tangled mess for these three amazing characters and has us begging for so much more!"
So if you haven't started this series, and delved into the LSU world - here are some teasers to hopefully get you to reconsider ;)
The time is coming....
I am excited to reveal the title for the next book in the Lake Shore Uni series, Midnight Rain. Eeek! Its almost time peeps! Midnight Rain will be here early in 2018, and the lead up to this novels release starts right now.
I am participating in a blog tour to reveal Midnight Rains cover, and I cant wait to hear your thoughts. I am so beyond excited, relieved and eternally grateful, that I have this novel ready for you all. The response to the first Lake Shore Uni book has just blown me away, and like you, I have been eagerly awaiting the second instalment to this amazing group of characters.
So sit back, eat a Reese, and fill in the tour form to participate in the cover reveal, and be the first to see this new cover!

Well I am back from my little hiatus, where my 'author' self had to take a back seat to the other five sides of me. I have spent the last few weeks being a 'mother-wife-wag-worker-traveller-and-overall-multitasker' of a human being that saw me literally travelling from one side of the country to the other, which unfortunately meant I needed a little break from writing (and blogging). But now I am back, and ready to see out the rest of 2017.
First though, to everyone emailing me about the second Lake Shore Uni book... do not fear :) I have still been working on it on the sly ;) and I am hoping to get it out by the end of the year. I am just as keen as you are to keep reading about Bree, Jase and Eth, so I promise I am definitely still working on it and it won't be too far away!
What have you all been up to? I love reading your emails and social media posts about your fave books and quotes. It has honestly been the best part of my author journey, just getting to meet so many amazing people. If you haven't already, come and join my Facebook 'Krew' where we really just chat about anything from books to boys, and everything in between. Its a bit of fun and we are meeting new people and that makes it just awesome.
Stay tuned for some Lake Shore Uni #2 teasers, cover reveal and TITLE :) I am super, super excited, and cannot wait to start sharing this new book with you all.
Keep dreaming, stay true to yourself and always believe.
Just 3 days.
3 days and the first book in my brand new series, Lake Shore University, will be hitting kindles everywhere! Excitement doesn't even cover it. The ARC reviews are slowly coming in, and I am blown away by the response and the love you are already feeling for Ethan, Jase and Bree. Thank you!!

Until then... xo
In this Breeze...
A Lake Shore University novel
A nerd. A quiet art student. A nobody.
Or perhaps, just some girl.
These were the non-spoken titles I was known as since I started at Lake Shore Uni almost two years ago now. When given the chance to leave my horrific childhood behind - I didn’t hesitate. In fact, I was ecstatic to have the door hit me on the ass on my way out of town; because the only two things I actually loved in my traumatic life…
Were coming with me.
And whilst the three of us shared the same beat-up truck when we moved here – that’s where the similarities unfortunately end.
Ethan ‘The Mule’ Jones, is kind of a super star on campus. Everywhere he goes he seems to draw attention. I guess that’s what happens when you’re headlining papers as the star basketballer for the LS Eagles. But to me, he’s just Eth. A boy who still spends his Friday nights snuggled up watching movies with me, and who walks me to classes just to make sure I get there okay. He is my best friend in every way, and I can’t imagine my life without him in it.
And then there’s Jase.
The truth is I knew from the moment I met Jase at the local skate park, when he was smoking a cigarette and teasing Eth for his poor skating ability, of how fiercely protective he was about those he cared for. From the time he blew his warm breath over my injured knee, to when he thankfully intervened on the most horrific day of my life. A day, that still haunts me when I am alone in the dark.
He saved me.
But Jase has his own demons too. Even if he doesn’t go looking for it, trouble always seems to find him. Which is why he has been absent from our lives for the past two years.
Sometimes I wonder what he’s doing.
Quite often I worry if he’s okay.
And I always, always, think about him.
Even though I shouldn’t.
Wow where has the time gone? I've been a little MIA on the whole blog front lately, but I promise its for a very good reason :) Not only has Camouflage hit the fiction waves, but a new novel will soon be surfing as well :) The first novel in my brand new Lake Shore Uni series will be released around the end of July, with the second book in that series to follow shortly after. So whilst I haven't been that active on the blog writing front - I promise I've been VERY active on the novel writing front :)
Anyway, back to the post...
Like always I have been reading a tonne of amazing novels by some incredible authors. I have posted some below with my thoughts and recommendations, and if you have any stories you think I might enjoy - please comment on the post below and I will be sure to check them out!
Wow, countdown is definitely on for Camouflage to hit the book world and I am literally bursting at the seams.
I have been getting a lot questions and emails about the book, and so, I thought it might be fun to host an event on Facebook on release day! So if you have access to facebook, please come and join in the release day fun :)
Camouflage Release Event
I will be answering questions live on the event page, and will be giving away some random prizes, including paperbacks, swag and lots more. We may even be lucky to have some other author peeps drop in to say hello :)
I have never done anything like this before, so please, spread the word and 'attend' the event. If you are reading the book on release day post your quotes from the novel, or even comment as you go. I can't wait to chat to you all!
Mother. Wife. Dreamer. Believer. And now Author.
