The Truth About Air & Water, book 2 in the Truth In Lies Series. READ This Much Is True, book 1 first, although it's been written as a standalone. Readers say, don't do that. 

They share an epic love, but one moment changes everything. A life together that seemed certain is shattered. 

One learns you never love the same way twice; the other learns what it means to come home. 

You only think you know how this love story goes, but do you really know how an epic love can end? 


From The Truth About Air & Water

She is living color, and I’ve been in a black-and-white world for far too long without her. 

Powerful stuff. It surrounds me. I’ve felt it since I first arrived. The forcefield of her. The magnetism of her. The power she wields over me. I’m alive again because of her, like a dying plant that finally gets some water. I’ve got it bad for this girl. 
Reality dawns. 
The light comes through the darkness and shines on me. 
She’s my water.
 
-Lincoln Presley 

The truth is I breathe with him. He is my air. Raison d’etre. 
-Tally Landon 

Author's note: This novel is part of the Truth In Lies series. It can be read as a standalone, however, fans of my fiction already are highly recommending that those new to my work, READ This Much Is True book 1 FIRST. 

As Lincoln Presley would say, "do as you must, Princess."

With her writing, Owen admits she has a fondness for angst, likes to play around with a little drama and essentially toys with the ideas surrounding the unintentional complications of love. She contends this began early on when she won a poetry contest at the age of fourteen and appears to be without end. Owen has an avid love of coffee, books, and writing, but not necessarily in that order. She writes both Contemporary Romance and New Adult fiction which includes her bestselling TRUTH IN LIES Series (a series despite despising 'series') beginning with This Much Is True, The Truth About Air & Water, and her latest release, Tell Me Something True. The TRUTH IN LIES series is fan-driven. So. There will be a third book about Linc and Tally in 2015. 


About Owen's fiction...This is NOT the light trope stuff. She travels a unique, writerly path and enjoys writing dark and angsty (a "non-word" she is fond of) emotional love stories. She often warn readers to be prepared with: time, tissues, wine, Advil or your drug of choice. And, as her most favored character, Lincoln Presley, would say, "do what you must, Princess."


Katherine Owen is always writing or thinking about writing. She lives in an old house near Seattle with her family where she is working on her next book, like always, while her family wishes she would clean and cook more often. Cinderella, she is not; and she constantly reminds them of this.

 Tell Me Something True is the third book in the Truth In Lies series and cannot be read as a standalone. Please read This Much Is True and The Truth About Air & Water, books 1 and 2 in the Truth In Lies Series, first.


TELL ME SOMETHING TRUE

The star ballerina finally marries the major league baseball player and the truth about Linc and Tally—his being her air and she being his water—becomes clear after the couple finally realize that their love is all that matters. 

But that was the first day. The day they said, “I do." The day the demons seemed to leave them alone, at least, for a little while. 

Nevertheless, there were other days, when all the lies of the past and their ways of coping with their fears caught up to them. 

And, this is that story. 

If you believe in fairy tales and happy endings, 

and you want to stop right here and bask in the wonderment and joy of it all, please do. 

If you want to know the rest of our story, 

you need to take a deep breath

and tell yourself that everything will be okay,

that everything works out,

and life happens,

and in the end 

love is all you need. 

Someone has to tell you these things, 

just like someone had to tell me.

All I know is that the truth never dies, 

and it does set you free, whether you want it to or not. 

And in the end? All you have is love.

Love is all there is.

  ~ Talia Landon Presley

Both on the verge of fame. A ballerina who lies. A baseball player who believes her. Well, the truth changes everything. 

Tally Landon is just trying to escape her tragic story and graduate from high school so she can pursue her ballet career in New York. She doesn't count on meeting Lincoln Presley, Stanford's baseball wonder, nor on this chance meeting with him affecting her at all. Adding him to a long list of one-night stands is the plan. Lying to him about her age and name is her standard method of operandi. She doesn't count on being found out, on seeing him again, or falling in love. 

Lincoln Presley's life is all mapped out for him. There is only baseball. With Major League Baseball circling their favorite prospect with a lucrative offer, he cannot afford to mess up. And, he doesn't; until he meets up with the girl he saved from the burning wreckage on the 101 on Valentine's Day months before. By the time he learns her real name and of all the lies she's told, he's in far too deep to ever really let her go. 

Fate has a different set of plans and when fame and lies tear them apart, one truth remains.

 "Here’s what I know: death abducts the dying, but grief steals from those left behind." 
Compelling and provocative, SEEING JULIA is the story of a young widow struggling to find herself who seeks only a normal life after tragic loss.

Julia Hamilton is at the precipice of her life, looking over the edge and seeing nothing. The unexpected meeting of Jake Winston saves her from reckless self harm, but their illicit connection leaves her questioning her past, her life, and herself most of all. She battles heartbreak over her loss and guilt over the inexplicable attraction to Jake. Then, she learns of betrayal by the one person she thought she knew and discovers that nothing is at it seems about her life or even herself.

SEEING JULIA is rich, edgy, compelling fiction that explores the vast toll that grief can take and all the amazing ways that love transcends just about everything else.

Please Note: Be advised that SEEING JULIA contains adult language and adult situations and is not appropriate for young readers. (Mature Young Adult/ New Adult/Adult Fiction)


Owen won the Zola Award and First Place in Romance category with the Pacific Northwest Writers Association in July 2010 with Seeing Julia. If you enjoy the tender scenes of P.S. I Love You, the poignant story lines of Nicholas Sparks, and the twists and turns in plot lines like those of Jodi Picoult, you are going to LOVE Katherine Owen's novel Seeing Julia!


PRAISE for SEEING JULIA...

"...an authentic look at grief and love. I believe anyone that has ever loved someone, lost them, and found a life and another love will devour Seeing Julia. Be forewarned: keep a box of Kleenex handy, as you will need them."


"...You get a little of everything in this book. Love, anger, angst, misery, retribution, they're all in there and make for a wonderful read."


"...Seeing Julia was everything I look for in a great book. Heartbreakingly sad, funny, enlightening, and best of all, heart mending...five stars are not enough..."

If you like dark, edgy compelling fiction with elements of love and romance, look for Owen's other works in contemporary fiction/romance by simply searching for her other novels, NOT TO US, WHEN I SEE YOU, and the Truth In Lies series including THIS MUCH IS TRUE and THE TRUTH ABOUT AIR & WATER.
