Kathryn Barrett reluctantly put aside childhood dreams of becoming an author and took the practical approach, majoring in Business Administration in college. But after marrying an Air Force officer, she realized a career in high finance didn't suit an itinerant lifestyle. She happily returned to her first love, writing stories that feature larger-than-life characters, family relationships, and of course, a happy ending.
Having lived all over the United States, Kathryn and her family now live in England, just outside London. She enjoys walking her dog in the Chiltern hills and exploring crumbling castles, and only occasionally reads the Financial Times.
