For every woman who wonders if she chose the right career…

In Love and Other Subjects Carolyn Jenkins strives for two things—to be the greatest teacher ever and to find true love. She’s as skilled at both as an infant trying to eat with a fork. Carolyn’s suburban upbringing and genuine compassion for people who don’t fit effortlessly into society are no match for weapon-wielding, struggling students, drug-using colleagues, and a wicked principal.

Meanwhile, her budding relationship with a mystery man is thwarted by his gaggle of eccentric sisters. Carolyn depends on her friends to get her through the hard times, but with poverty-stricken children at her feet and a wealthy man at her side, she must define who she is. The reality of life after college can be daunting, the road to full-fledged adulthood long and unscripted. Can Carolyn take control and craft the life she’s always wanted?

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

I loved this book. Simply loved it. This is a strong recommend for pretty much anyone, but especially for young women starting out on their own…


I highly recommend Love and Other Subjects. It is easy, fun, witty, and eye opening to some of the everyday problems teachers have to deal with.


As an editor and writer, I find it harder and harder to get lost in a good book; I just can’t turn off my inner critic. With Love and Other Subjects, however, it was easy. I was drawn into the story on the first page and kept reading because I was enjoying myself. If you want to treat yourself to some relaxing and absorbing fiction, this is a perfect choice.


I love this book. This only allows me to give 5 stars but it deserves 10 stars. The best ending anyone could ever ask for. Love And Other Subjects covers all aspects of real lives and I found it so touching but so much fun to read.


Love and Other Subjects is a quick, funny read, which also contains useful and insightful life lessons – a unique blend of fun and serious subject matter. Just read it! You will not be disappointed. I love all of Kathleen Shoop’s books.

About The Author

NOW AVAILABLE– Bliss–an anthology of love stories that all take place in the same house on the water, but each novella is set in a different era! Lovely, fun, easy read!

LOVE AND OTHER SUBJECTS…A fun read for women’s fiction lovers!

Thank you for reading about me here and for purchasing my novel! I’m married with two children. I’ve been seriously writing for almost a decade although I dabbled much earlier than that! I’ve had short stories published in four Chicken Soup for the Soul books, am a regular contributor to a local magazine, Pittsburgh Parent, and have had essays in local newspapers as well.

I have a PhD in Reading Education and have worked in schools for over twenty years. I work with teachers and their students in grades k-8 and am lucky to learn something new from them every time I walk through their doors. This experience was a huge help in writing LOVE AND OTHER SUBJECTS–a quirky, post-college coming of age story.

My first novel, The Last Letter (2011 IPPY Gold Medal–Regional Fiction, Midwest, 2011 Indie Excellence Finalist Award for Historical Fiction and Regional Fiction, 2011 International Book Awards Finalist for Historical Fiction and Best New Fiction), was a fascinating trip through history, punctuated with fictional characters and events. The idea for the story grew from my great-great grandmother’s letters (see My Dear Frank for the complete set of letters!) written during the year of her engagement to Frank Arthur. The beautiful letters are the inspiration for the novel, the seed from which The Last Letter’s characters and their voices grew.

I’ve also written women’s fiction–LOVE AND OTHER SUBJECTS– and have written another historical fiction novel, AFTER THE FOG, set in 1948 in a town not far from Oakmont, PA. AFTER THE FOG is also an award winning book–silver IPPY and WINNER in the literary category of the National Indie Excellence Awards.

Right now, I’m finishing up a 20,000 word short love story for an anthology and am also using my characters and setting from THE LAST LETTER as per reader request to show what happened between the two timelines in the original book! I hope readers will enjoy the fact I write about varied eras and places and that they will love each book for its unique setting and time.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Kathleen Shoop and ENT appreciate it.
