From the Author

The Life of Willow was inspired by themany emails and messages I've received from my readers asking if my books aresuitable for their teenage children. With that in mind, I set out to write astory that would appeal to those going into their teenage years, as well asentertain my usual adult audience. The story of Willow began from the prologuein my memoir, Silent Tears: A Journey ofHope in a Chinese Orphanage. In the prologue, Mei Li is a young motherforced by her husband and his family to give up her less-than-perfect child.The act is devastating to her and the child, changing their lives forever.Then, the Life of Willow picks upsixteen years later, for she is the daughter of Mei Li from Silent Tears. It is also my hope that inwriting these stories, readers will join me in realizing what my connections tothe adoption community have taught me--that families are built in a variety ofways, and it only takes love and acceptance to begin a foundation that canresult in a lifelong bond between individuals, whether they share the sameblood or not. And for those adoptees who are still searching for answers, Iwish them a measure of peace and a reminder that the struggle is part of yourstory, though it does not have to be the ending. Every person is in charge oftheir own happily ever after.

Kay Bratt; Writer, Rescuer, Wanderer

As a writer, Kay used writing to help her navigate a tumultuous childhood, followed by a decade of abuse as an adult. After working her way through the hard years, Kay emerged a survivor and a pursuer of peace—and finally found the courage to share her stories. She is the author of more than two dozen books, with ten of those published by Lake Union Publishing. Kay writes women’s fiction and historical fiction, and her books have fueled many exciting book club discussions. Her works have been translated into German, Korean, Chinese, Hungarian, Czech, Estonian, and have made it into the hands of more than a million readers around the world.

As a rescuer, Kay currently focuses her efforts on animal rescue and is the Director of Advocacy for Yorkie Rescue of the Carolinas. As a child advocate, she spent a number of years volunteering in a Chinese orphanage, as well as provided assistance for several nonprofit organizations that support children in China, including An Orphan’s Wish (AOW), Pearl River Outreach, and Love Without Boundaries. In the USA, she actively served as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) for abused and neglected children in Georgia, and spear-headed numerous outreach programs for underprivileged children in the South Carolina area.

As a wanderer, Kay has lived in nearly three dozen different homes, on two continents and in states from coast to coast in the USA. She’s traveled to Mexico, Thailand, Malaysia, China, Philippines, Central America, Bahamas, and Australia. Currently she and her soulmate of more than 25 years enjoy life in their forever home on the banks of Lake Hartwell in Georgia, USA.

Kay has been described as southern, spicy, and a little sassy. Social media forces her to overshare and you don’t want to miss some of the antics that goes on with her and the Bratt Pack.

Find her on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and then buckle up and enjoy the ride. You can find a full list of her published works at -- To be notified when new books are released, please sign up for my monthly email newsletter at or at this link:
