A historical middle-grade novel that drops you right into 1870's Kansas, with a whole lot of drama and a little bit of romance.

Housemaid? What a horrible word Not that I'd ever actually seen a housemaid, but I could picture one: a meek, aproned, pale-faced girl who never saw the sun.

When her parents force her to work at grand Ashford Manor, 12-year-old Cabby Potts will do anything to escape, including playing matchmaker between her sister and the rich young lord of the manor. If it succeeds, her scheme will save her family's struggling homestead. If it fails . . .

Can Cabby find the courage to stand up for her family, a Native American friend, and an entire community threatened by land-grabbers?

Cabby Potts, Duchess of Dirt, is a tale of the prairie with humor, heart, and a dash of romance.

Kathleen Wilford was born in Panama and has lived in four different countries and three different states-but never in Kansas. She has always loved to read and was inspired to become a writer by such "classics" as Miss Osborne the Mop. She studied literature at Cornell University and at Rutgers University, where she now teaches writing. When she's not teaching or writing, Kathleen can be found outdoors, mowing the lawn or chasing her disobedient dog. Kathleen believes that to understand where you are, you need to know where you've been. That's why she loves to read and write about the past. Cabby Potts, Duchess of Dirt is her debut middle-grade novel. Connect with Kathleen at and on Twitter at @kathwilford.
