Currently living in Missoula, Montana, Kat is the bestselling author of twenty-five Historical and Contemporary Romance novels.
Before she started writing in 1985, Kat was a real estate broker. During that time, she met her husband, Larry Jay Martin, also an author. Kat is a graduate of the University of California at Santa Barbara where she majored in Anthropology and History.
"I love anything old," she says, "and especially visiting the settings for my books." She and Larry often do research in the areas where their novels take place. "We like to stay in out-of-the-way inns and houses built in times past. It's fun and it gives a wonderful sense of a by-gone era."
Sometimes the houses themselves spawn tales, as happened with THE SILENT ROSE, a ghost story that became Kat's first contemporary romantic suspense. Her fourth, HOT RAIN will be out in May of this year. Her next historical, FANNING THE FLAME, will be out August 1st.
To date, Kat has been published in Germany, Norway, Sweden, China, Korea, Bulgaria, Russia, England, South Africa, Italy, Spain, and Greece.
