Kate Birch. Spring of Fever hits the streets in New York!
Congratulations to Kate on the release of her first novel in Mass Market. Here are some of the comments she has received about her work.
-Spring of Fever is a timely and relevant read. As we struggle to understand uncontrollable diseases and pandemics (SARS, Anthrax, and more), Kate Birch has produced a novel that capitalizes on this terror.
There is no known cure for the strain of plague featured in Kate's book, and it is one of the easiest diseases to spread from the air. I discovered Kate Birch in Africa, where she was working as an editor and freelandce writer. I understood immediately the power of her writing and storytelling ability. What I didn't know at the time was that she was also a molecular biologist. For past time Kate would explore the origins of Ebola in the Elephant Caves of Uganda. Yes fun!
Spring of Fever has been brought out by Dorchester with a new cover and new title. Mass Market offering - Lone Star Plague by Kate Birch. It will be a wonderful winter read.
