Kathryn has always loved to read. Growing up she could most often be found curled up with a book. She craved adventure, romance, and mystery. Each book transported her to a new world with new wonders to explore. Unhappy with the weak female characters she found in many of the stories she read, Kathryn started writing her own. At twelve, she was putting her own heroines in danger and allowing them to save themselves.
She attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison earning a degree in history and then a law degree from Hamline University School of Law. After practicing law for several years and hating every minute of it she put down her law books and picked up her creative pen, this time to write a book she would publish. She's been scribbling ever since. Kathryn currently lives in Minnesota with her husband, and a lovable but neurotic cat named Brooklyn.
