SILVER AWARD ~ Nautilus Books Awards

FIRST PLACE ~ 2018 Journey Book Awards ~ Memoir 

Released November 1, 2018 Seductive, sincere, and at times hysterical and heartbreaking, this memoir follows author and good girl, Kayce Stevens Hughlett out of her carefully constructed comfort zone into the world of international travel, healers, wise winged mentors, and inspiring versions of humankind. 

SoulStroller introduces a fresh and exciting way of experiencing and living life on one's own terms---expanding readers' world views whether they choose to visit destinations like Paris, Ireland, or Bali, or get to know what home looks like through fresh eyes. 

Labeled shy and rendered virtually silent by age six, Kayce had been raised to fit the role of perfect wife, doting mom, and accomplished woman. She fulfilled her mission by her mid-forties when society said she had it all. Society was wrong. 

When her eldest child disappears into the haze of addicition, her perfect world changes faster than you can say, Get it right! 

Ethereal, gritty, and relatable, SoulStroller is the evolution of a woman too timid to speak her mind into someone who writes her own rules and redefines what it means to live with silence, compassion, and joie de vivre.


1st Place WINNER ~ 2015 Somerset Awards ~ Contemporary Women's Fiction

"Blue: a novel"

One insecure perfectionist. One guilt-ridden artist. One child-woman who talks to peacocks. A trio of complex heroines on separate journeys toward a single intertwined truth.

Blue—a subtle psychological mind-bender where each heroine is her own worst enemy. Eccentric. Loveable. Unforgettable. 


"Three women live their lives, and are somehow connected in a mysterious way. During the story there are more and more pieces of the puzzle that fit together, until in the end the whole seablue picture is complete. At that point, all three women have shown some wonderful strength, deep emotions, and a completeness when they dare to fit together." Jantine Kampes-Schimmel ~ Goodreads

Released in January 2012, As I Lay Pondering: daily invitations to live a transformed life is a fresh and innovative daybook that hints of a memoir, reads as a gentle guidebook, and resonates with the human experience. Each of the 366 daily entries conjures the ineffable with soulful specifics—some tiny and concrete, others dreamily unreal—always seamlessly present. It is no heavy-handed moral guide to self-improvement; rather it is an invitation into the bigness of life. Filled with inspiration, personal reflections, and simple activities to deepen the pathway to presence, it is the ideal companion for any transformational journey.


"Like Mark Nepo and Rachel Naomi Remen, Kayce invites me to learn with her day by day as she creates a handmade life. Her stories enlighten me while her prompts tickle my heart's ear to listen with more clarity and self-kindness. A beautiful way to spend a few minutes each day." Jennifer Louden, best-selling author and teacher

"These daily meditations are a treasure, full of wisdom and creative invitations for your own pondering. Immerse yourself in a year of grace through this book.”  Christine Valters Paintner, PhD, author of The Artist’s Rule: Nurturing Your Creative Soul with Monastic Wisdom
