The Eftsoons Writer

Originally “eftsoons” was an adverb meaning that you are either about to do something again, or are going do something immediately following. I use it as an adjective to describe myself as a writer. Why? Well, you’ll have to read my first blog post to find out!

About Me

Hi, I’m Kathleen. After working in the business world for a number of years, I decided to get back in touch with my first love: great literature. The blog addresses classic literature, mindset, writing, and the space where those three meet. I’ve always thought classic literature in particular is overlooked and underutilized in today’s world. My mission is to show you why the books of the past are still relevant today and how they can actually change your mindset and, by extension, your life.

When I’m not working on the blog, or writing my trilogy, I’m knitting, being a bird mom, and, of course, reading! In particular, I like Shakespeare, Dante, Jane Austen, and Tolkien. Each of them has helped form me into the person and writer I am today. Shakespeare actually saved my life on one occasion.

Thank you for visiting and for reading!

The Boss

This little ball of fluff is Max. Short for Maxima Desima Meridia. Yes, we named her for the main character in Gladiator. As you can see, she likes to keep me busy with snuggling and shenanigans when I’m not writing. She also makes sure the house is run like clockwork because, you know, dishes and laundry still have to be done at some point. She’s bossy but effective and she makes sure this particular writer’s brain stays on point.
