Telling stories and writing them down for a living. Wouldn’t we all love to do that?
And then having them become New York Times best-selling books at that! How does one go from a business career to writing historical fiction to writing crime fiction? My guest today has done all of that and is here to share her journey and experiences with the Salem Witch Trials, pioneer Texas and a woman detective.
Join me for my conversation with Kathleen Kent!

Hi and welcome to Coffee with Claire!
Today’s theme is going to be about resilience.
The definition of resilience is the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.
At the beginning of anything new, there’s always excitement and an adrenaline rush as you build that something that has never been built before.
You figure it out, you put processes together, and pretty soon, you have a well-oiled machine that you understand and know you can depend on.
Then, one day, you hit a snag–something completely unexpected, and out of your control. Everything you worked for is suddenly gone. You’re left standing at a crossroads. Which road do you choose?
Path #1 is easy. You quit. You throw in the towel. You decide that the thing that happened was a sign that you weren’t supposed to do it anymore anyways.
Path #2 is you pick yourself up, gather the pieces you can find, and re-invent and re-create those that you can’t. It takes time and it takes money that you didn’t think you had, but you find ways to make it work.
Not everyone will pick Path #2. It may not be feasible. But those who are successful know there’s going to be up’s and downs. You’re never 100% right, or profitable, or marketable or whatever other adjective you want to inject. However, it’s the people who have resilience in their blood that are willing to try again. Maybe do it a little differently this next time around, but it’s definitely worth it in their minds.
The resilience I am speaking about specifically is Coffee with Claire, and how I came to the conclusion that just because we hit a major bump in the road didn’t mean we veered off the road, took the wheels off the bus, and walked home. Would it have been easy? Sure. But I wasn’t done, and I wasn’t going to give up.
