Fall Arrives


Officially Fall is a week away with the autumnal equinox. Weather wise fall arrived a few weeks ago. The dogwood leaves are turning. Soon the sumac will be scarlet. The harvest moon will be full soon.

I will miss summer even with all the endless chores.

New Botany Books

Dr. Richard Rintz has published two botanical books. You might notice the About Me page is now about GKP authors and includes some information about Dr. Rintz as well as about me.

cover of Discovering the Floral Biology of Aristolochia

So many important botanical papers are in other languages. Older ones are in Latin and German. Discovering the Floral Biology of Aristolochia has many of these important papers translated into English.

cover of The Syrian Milkweed by Dr. Richard Rintz

The Syrian Milkweed is the story of Dr. Rintz’ quest to discover how a North American plant ended up with such an inappropriate name. His search took him back into original papers in Latin and parts of his translations are included in the book.


Book Sample Pages!

A pdf of free sample pages from all of my books are available under GKP Books on the menu. I plan to add sample pages from Dr. Rintz’ books soon.


Visit me at: http://www.pinterest.com/karengoatkeeper. I try to keep up with nine boards on nature, my books, country living, gardening, my cats, my goats and the science projects. Take care or you may spend hours browsing as Pinterest is a very interesting place to visit.

Visit me at: Goodreads. I write a short weekly blog on some aspect of writing my books. It is a great place to meet new authors, established authors and people who like to read.

Although I try to pretend every day has about 40 hours, a day really has only 24 hours. So I have no Facebook or Twitter accounts.

I do updates on Wednesday afternoons. Occasionally weather or other difficulty delays this. And I tend to take the last week of the year off.
