- No Cosmopolitans or Daiquiris this girl. Kate’s favorite drink is a Sloe Gin Fizz, although in a pinch, she’ll down a few shots of the gin she keeps in her freezer.
- Kate not only rides a Harley, she rebuilt it and does the maintenance herself.
- Let’s just say if the book took place in the Wild West, Kate would win a gun draw.
- She’s tenacious. When she wants something, she’ll do everything to achieve it.
- She’s loyal to a fault. Good for her friends, not so good for Kate.
- She’s no timid virgin. Kate owns her sexuality and doesn’t make any excuses for it.
- She’s not perfect. She pops her anti-anxiety pills—which she keeps in a Tic-Tac dispenser—like candy, and she makes a lousy cup of coffee.
- She gets sarcastic when she’s nervous.
- She rocks out to Eminem when she’s upset.
- Money doesn’t impress her.

Book Title: One Chance, One Moment – Book One – The Mandy Story
Author: Judith Kohnen
Genre: Contemporary Romance (comedy/drama)
Release Date: June 17, 2014
Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions
Sometimes a chance comes along that can change the course of an entire life – make it right again, make a dream come true – and when that moment arrives, we grab it and fight with all of our might to make it happen … or not.
Renowned singer/musician Garry Danzlo has decided to live a life of seclusion after a debilitating accident destroys his musical career. Guilt-ridden and stubborn, he wants no part of the holistic nurse his sister has hired to rehabilitate him. He’s determined to get rid of her; she’s determined to stay.
Spunky, fun-loving Amanda Fields, widowed after a loveless marriage, is on a mission for love. More than anything in the world, she wants to adopt a wheelchair-bound boy named Robbie. When her chance arrives that will provide her with sufficient funds for the adoption, there’s nothing to stop her from accomplishing the temporary job in Colorado. But what she has to contend with is far more than just a difficult patient. Unexpected obstacles are suddenly out of her control. The least of her worries is falling for yet another man who doesn’t love her back.
One Chance, One Moment is a humorous, surprising and deeply emotional story of love found by two special people – love built on chances one must sometimes take, but sometimes give as well. Each moment becomes nourished by the faith of one woman, and eventually, by the dream of one man.
Judith has always been a romantic at heart. She adores writing, poetry, music, singing, dancing, teaching, education, and caring for others. It is her hope that through her imaginative talents that she might become a source of inspiration for her readers. Part of her life’s path is empowering others toward healing and teaching them how to use their own imagination and intuitive abilities.
She’s written over 200 pages of poetry, numerous songs and short stories, a couple of children’s plays that were performed on stage, and has begun a screenplay. She served as newsletter editor for Virginia Romance Writers for four years and has coordinated and judged VRW’s HOLT Medallion Contest and their FOOL FOR LOVE Contest many times. She has also freelanced for various non-profit organizational newsletters, most of which were entertainment reviews, inspirational articles, and articles on writing.
A teacher of mediumship & intuitive development with a professional background in registered nursing, hypnotherapy and natural healing arts, Judith is doing what she’s most passionate about – writing! She encourages you to do what you’re passionate about too. “Live for the moment,” she says, “for this moment is the most important of all moments.”
Judith lives in Chesterfield, Virginia with her husband, extended family, 2 dogs, 1 cat, and a 1 bearded dragon named Victor.
