Kat is a California native with a degree in Magazine Journalism from California State University, Long Beach. She is the national bestselling author of the Greywalker paranormal detective novels. Prior to success in the fiction world, Kat worked as a writer and editor in the computer industry and as a course writer for the Gemological Institute of America. She has tried her hand at a bit of almost everything in genre fiction and has dabbled in other text forms and media including: RPGs (Moon Elves); Film (The Glove); and Computer Games (T2X). Before going into writing, Kat pursued a degree in vocal music and she used to read the “Sunday Funnies” for the Evergreen Radio Reading Service in Seattle–part of the Washington Talking Book and Braille Library. A former theater brat, she worked the technical side as well as singing and acting in community and school theater from the age of eight, and put in thirteen years as a renaissance faire actor, dancer, and costumer at RPF in Agoura CA.
She currently lives on a sailboat in Seattle with her husband and the ghosts of ferrets. She rides a motorcycle, shoots target pistol, and has been known to swing dance, sing, and spend insufficient time at the gym. She does not have a TV because she has no room for one–yes, she missed Buffy.
