Author Biography

Kathleen Driver is an entrepreneur, consultant and business coach also pursuing her dream as a novelist. Through her writing, Kathleen shares her experience and observation of the internal dialogue that we all experience regardless of position or power. She takes a very transparent, but encouraging approach in a storytelling format that is relatable, realistic and enjoyable.

Kathleen has often been heard to say, “We are more than our titles and what we do in the ‘busy-ness’ of life. Inside of us and behind what we do, are genuine, live feelings and emotions.” Reading her books is like having a conversation with a close girlfriend.

One of her favorite quotes, “The difference between a stepping stone and stumbling block is how you pick up your feet” was the inspiration for the title of “Stepping Stones.” Kathleen believes in following your dreams and the power of reinvention. To further inspire her readers, she includes an original quote, “As long as you are still in the game, you have a chance to win!”

    Book Review

Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite

Stepping Stones by Kathleen Driver is an uplifting book that narrates the conversations between two people, Kitt and April, metaphorically linking them to the conversations one can have with one's own self. The conversations touch on emotions, faith, dreams, growth, surrender, obstacles in life, doubt, and many more feelings and thoughts that form part of one's journey in life. The experiences, conversations, and the two characters portrayed in the book are honest and sincere. The book helps readers dispel misconceptions and they will also find the messages within both useful and inspirational.

The two characters in the story, Kitt and April, connect well with readers and the dialogues they have between themselves and the ups and downs in their lives are relatable. God gives everyone everything as long as they stay connected and are ready to receive what He gives us is a very uplifting thought conveyed in the book. The author's idea of putting across the message through the dialogues of Kitt and April is original and refreshing. It makes the message tangible and more real. It's like one is having a good chat with their best friend and becoming motivated after discussing life in general.

The author expresses her ideas using simple language, and the messages can be comprehended easily and incorporated into one's life without much difficulty. The book also teaches readers to love themselves first before they can make changes in their lives in a positive and encouraging way. It's a book that teaches the concept of 'letting go' of toxic relationships and negative things in one's life. The great cover will attract readers to buy/read the book.
