Author of the Month
Kathy Hoch Chwedyk, who writes as Kate Huntington, fell in love with the Regency period as a high school sophomore Huntington High School, when she was required to read Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen in English class. It changed her life. Kathy credits her love of writing to her English teachers at SS. Peter & Paul Elementary School, Huntington Catholic High School, Huntington High School, and the University of St. Francis. She credits her love of reading to the dedicated librarians at the Huntington County Library – now the Huntington City-Township Public Library – for giving her special permission to borrow books from the adult collection when she was in grade school because she had already read all the books in the children’s collection. She has one sister (who currently works at the Huntington City-Township Public Library) and two brothers. She lives in Algonquin, Illinois with her husband of 28 years, Robert Chwedyk.
