Kate decided that writing was going to be a big part of her life early on, when she “wrote” her first “book” about a unicorn who eats rainbows.

She went on to write many more stories (most of them lacking in unicorns) at the University of Waterloo, Ontario, where she graduated with an Honors Bachelor of Arts in Rhetoric and Professional Writing.

After a brief stint working in youth magazine publishing, it became clear that the charmed world of fiction is where her heart is most happy, so she embarked on her journey into the book-publishing world, first as an assistant editor for a major publisher, and then as an author, writing about magic, adventure, and all things swoonworthy.

Kate makes her home in Southwestern Ontario, where she lives with her husband, two children, two cats, and an ever-rising pile of cherished books. She is rep'd by the irrepressibly brilliant Marlene Stringer.
