Author: Kathy Hepinstall

As a baby, Kathy Hepinstall was once thrown out with the bath water. This experience shaped her life and art. She grew up in Texas but eventually escaped after earning a MASTER’S DEGREE at the UNIVERSITY OF HOUSTON. Later, she worked for DMB&B, LARSEN COLBY AND STEIN ROBAIRE HELM (all Los Angeles agencies), then freelanced for a number of years, during which she wrote her first two novels, THE HOUSE OF GENTLE MEN (2000) AND THE ABSENCE OF NECTAR (2001).
