One reviewer writes on AMAZON:  ‘Pity Becomes You’ is a very thought-provoking and heartbreaking story about a woman’s secrets and conflicts with her life’s decisions, as well as her struggles with dementia. The supporting characters are believable, and draw the reader to empathize with their reactions to the main character’s mental decline. This is a compelling novel for anyone dealing with a loved one’s dementia diagnosis, as well as the consequences of that terrible disease.





I'll Be Honest with You
 published September 2015





I'll Be Honest with You is a collection of essays about everything under the sun including the kitchen sink - seriously. Thomas takes on a new challenge writing minimally leaving readers to piece together what they want from brief "flashes," or eruptions of ideas. It's a book to be picked up and read over and over for snippets of truth sprinkled with a decent portion of playfulness.








Don't Whatever Me, Ever 
published 2014

AND ONE MORE THING, Vol. II




This collection of essays first appeared in print in Thomas' popular biweekly column, AND ONE MORE THING... in the Livingston County News.

A Smidgen of Irish Luck


 A woman's musings on her solo trip to 
Ireland and what she discovered about herself along the way.


One reader's review: Just delightful! This book not only inspires a tour of Ireland, but also provides a convincing portrayal of enjoying a tour without a companion. 
Another review: Whether looking for a four-leaf clover or deciding against kissing the Blarney Stone, Kay Thomas' trip around Ireland has a place in my heart. Perhaps it is the booklover in both of us, but I was thrilled to read how she lingered in the library of Trinity College. Perhaps you will savor tipping a pint or walking along and looking in the shops. Whatever your interest in Ireland, it will appear in the pages of this book.
NOTE: Yes, I know the author, but that challenges me to give an honest review.
