Kathy Coatney

Dad's Girls

Lily and her dad were very close. They spent lots of time together. Friday was her dad’s day off, and they did special things together while her mom taught school. But then a few months before her sister, Violet, was born, her dad died, and everything changed.

This is the story Lily shared about her dad to remember all the special things about him for her and Violet.

Inside the Story

Dads-Girls-Back-no-text-high-resDad’s Girls was written for all the children who’ve lost a parent. This particular book moved me deeply as it’s a true story, and the husband, father, son, nephew and friend we lost is missed every day.

A special thanks to Lily and her mom for sharing this story of the special man they called husband and Dad.

All proceeds from the book go to Lily and her sister, Violet’s college account.

Kathy Coatney has spent long hours behind the lens of a camera, wading through rice paddies, dairies and orchards over her twenty plus years as a photojournalist specializing in agriculture. With her roots in agriculture running four generations deep, she felt a deep concern that children didn’t know how their food was produced. Envisioning a new direction for her writing, she launched From the Farm to the Table series of nonfiction children’s books about agriculture.

Kathy also loves—and writes—deeply emotional, small-town romances. She gets her inspiration from movies like While You Were Sleeping, Return To Me, a variety of music, and from her own happily-ever-after. Her favorite place to plot out novels is swinging in a hammock on a warm spring day. Ironically, her fiction books also carry an agriculture thread in them, some more than others.

Kathy’s favorite things: cuddling by the fire, ice cream, fresh-baked scones, mochas, and finding outdoor activities for every season, whether it’s swimming, skiing, mountain biking or a quiet stroll through the woods.

Happily married for over thirty-five years, she and her husband have two grown sons, a granddaughter and a menagerie of animals—a black lab who thinks she’s human, a house cat that looks part bobcat, and numerous wild animals that roam freely on her property.
