Kathy Lowinger

As some of you know, for my day job, I am a publicist at Tundra Books. This means I have the privilege of working with Publisher, Kathy Lowinger. Not many people are able to do what they love, but Kathy does, and all of us at Tundra happily feed off her energy and expertise.

Earlier this year, Kathy announced that she would be retiring. =(

So last week, we had a small get-together to toast Kathy's retirement. Naturally, I was on cupcake duty and with the help of everyone at Tundra, came up with these Kathy-themed cupcakes:

Books! This was an obvious one. I even gave one of the books a "starred" review. =)

Here are Bill and Kathy's pets: Mimsey (Hungarian Sheepdog), Rupert (Basset Hound), Abby (Boxer), and William Buster (Tabby).

Music note, treble clef, and a keyboard! Kathy loves playing the piano.

Swimsuits, we know Kathy will be lounging by the pool a lot more now!

Ballet slippers, Kathy owns quite a few pairs...

Camper shoes. Kathy really likes the ones with the strap over the foot!

This is Bill. Kathy's husband!

Thank you to everyone at Tundra for helping me with the Kathy-themed cupcakes! I love how well we know Kathy and I had a blast making them.

Kathy, we wish you all the best on your retirement!


  1. Those are really sweet. They're perfect retirement cupcakes. Bill is a cutie too!

  2. Monica H - Thank you! It was a great moment when Kathy pointed out Bill on the cupcake. =)

  6. Avanika [YumsiliciousBakes] - I can't speak for Kathy, but from the look on her face, she was pretty happy with the surprise/gifts!

    Dominika - LOL! You did get to meet Rupert in the office! Thank goodness Kathy won't be leaving completely, she'll still be around to help us. =)

  7. These are too wonderful!

  8. The Lucy and Dick Show - Thank you so much! =)
