  1. This was a great interview. Kathleen is so full of knowledge and passion. I ordered the new book, but she is experiencing publishing issues for the hardcover. They still are trying to block her rewriting of history. So sad. I ordered the e-book though and cannot wait to read it. Many years ago I read The Expected One and never went on with the Trilogy, so I am encouraged to get back to it again.Thank you Tanya.
