vegetables-3386212_1920Hello Friends,

What is the best place to purchase juicy sweet fruit, crisp tasty vegetables, fresh herbs and flowers in a variety of colors? What is your favorite place to buy produce and plants for your house and garden? Local vendors provide these and other wares at your local Farmers Market.

National Farmers Market Week begins next week. I’m collecting a list of Farmers Market to share with you. I want to include your favorite Farmers Market. Please answer the following questions.

  1. Where is your Farmers Market?
  2. When is it? Time and day(s)?

The completed list will be posted here on my website on Saturday August 4th, just in time for National Farmers Market Week.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Thank you!

Kathryn Hughes

P.S. Post a photo of your favorite plant or produce vendor!



Happy 100th Birthday Royal Air Force!

On July 10, 2018 the United Kingdom celebrated 100 years of the Royal Air Force (RAF) with a parade in London and 100 planes flying overhead. Instead of candles, that’s a plane for every year. From the pictures I saw online, it looked like a show-stopping celebration.

The Royal Air Force was formed on April 1, 1918 with the merging of the Royal Flying Corps and the Royal Naval Air Service. The Woman’s Royal Air Force was also formed at this time.

Here are a couple of photos of the Royal Air Force in World War II which I’ve collected for research for my World War II novel I’m working on writing. More photos are on my WWII- Royal Air Force board on myPinterest page, KathrynHughes-author.

Thank you to all the Allied forces who kept us free then as well as now.

“Thousands gathered in London’s Green Park to finally and formally acknowledge the debt to the 55,573 men of Bomber Command who never came home.RAF Bomber Command’s role during World War Two was to defend the UK and bomb the enemy’s airbases, shipping, troops, communications and other industries connected to the German war effort.”

Writing Journey

The Writing Journey

Writing is an incredible journey.  I’ve been published for twenty years as of November 2017. I could not do the journey without special people along the way.

To my family: Thank you for your support, encouragement, love, and patience as I spend time writing and hosting critique groups. Your sacrifice is greatly appreciated. I could not do this without you. Thank you for your editing, computer rescues, and for sending me to classes and conferences to improve my craft.

To Lynn Wolsey, my Poway Progress editor:  Thank you for taking this raw writer back in 1997 and editing and publishing my work. May we work many more years together.

To the Poway Critique Group of the San Diego Christian Writers’ Guild: There are so many of you friends to thank over the years. Thank you for your editing, your wise and thoughtful critiques, and your encouragement. I have learned so much from each of you.

To my many prayer partners: Thank you for praying for me to honor God in my writing, have clarity of thought, and the ability to learn and research.

To my Lord, Jesus Christ: Thank you for guiding me along the way and giving me words to write. To You be all the glory.
