aka Linda O'Brien

Kate Collins is the author of the best-selling Flower Shop Mystery series. For her plots, Kate draws upon her own love of flowers, a multitude of crazy cats who've allowed her to care for them, children she adores, a lawyer husband who inspires her, and an intimate knowledge of life in a Midwestern college town. She states firmly for the benefit of all who live near her that none of the zany characters that populate the fictional town of New Chapel are based on people she knows. Honest.
