About Me

Bought with a price, born-again Christ follower. It’s not religion, it’s relationship.

I write fiction.
You can also find me at; K.P. Stafford, where I write clean, quirky cozy mysteries and romantic suspense.ย 



I’m a Wife, Mom, Nana, and a little bit scatter-brained, or a lot depending on who you ask. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m not perfect (not even close) and I can be moody, although most people never notice it. I don’t bounce out of the bed in the morning eager to take the world on. It takes a fair amount of coffee and quiet time before I even consider it. And some days, I fail miserably.

I love to encourage people, but some days I can’t even encourage myself enough to encourage others.

I can be sassy and snarky, but I’m mostly a quiet person. I can be brutally honest, although I do try to keep the brutality to a minimum. I’m compassionate, and as an empath I feel way more than any one person should have to, but it is what it is. However, I’m a ‘tough love’ kinda gal. I’ll listen with a caring heart, but if I see that you’re stuck in self-pity mode, I will tell you to get off your butt and do something about it. Whining fixes nothing. Action leads to progress.

I do best when I keep things as simple as possible. Unfortunately, I have one of those brains that tries to make everything difficult and wants to overload my plate with way too many ideas and directions. Maybe you can relate.

I enjoy joking around and having fun…


In My Personal Life

I am married to heavy metal bassist, Kevin Stafford.

Between us, we have 5 kids; 2 boys and 3 girls and 11 grandkids. We listen to heavy metal, classical music and old traditional hymns. Quite the mix, eh?

We’ve known each other since we were kids and dated in high school, but didn’t marry until 2008. Looooong story. Maybe it’ll show up in a novel some day. Maybe not. ๐Ÿ˜‰

He plays at least a dozen instruments. I can play a turkey box call. LOL. Yeah, look it up if you don’t know what that is. ๐Ÿ˜‰

The pic of him on the bottom right is from back in the 80s when he played metal for a living. He’s the one on the left with the thick wrist band. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Why so many pictures of my husband? Cuz, I like him. I like him a lot! Okay, I adore him. He can be a stubborn butt-head but I love him to pieces!

Back in the 80s

Be Blessed!
