BIO

Kate is in love with the sport of hockey. And the entire Los Angeles Kings team. Having lived most of her life completely uninterested in professional sports, she is surprised at the intensity of her enthusiasm and her growing collection of Kings merchandise:

  • a Dustin Brown jersey (signed by Jordan Nolan, Dwight King, Jake Muzzin, Willie Mitchell, Slava Voynov, Tyler Toffoli, Tanner Pearson, Jim Fox, Andy Andreoff, Tanner Pearson, Martin Jones, Kyle Clifford, and Luc Robitaille.)
  • an iPhone case
  • four T-shirts
  • three lapel pins
  • a wristwatch 
  • a floating charm pendant
  • four hats (two beanies, one cap, one Santa hat)
  • several play-off towels from 2012, 2013, 2014
  • a purple sequined jacket
  • replica Stanley Cup Champions banners, 2011-2012 and 2013-2014
  • a car windshield sticker and license plate frame
  • a fuzzy blanket
and the pièce de résistance...
  • an autographed collector card with a swatch of Justin William’s game-worn jersey.
Yeah. Don’t judge her.

She has held a variety of jobs—podiatrist's assistant, telemarketer, typist, gift wrapper, painter, illustrator's assistant, paste-up artist, calligrapher, teacher, transcriptionist and barista—but her favorite by far is author. She resides in Los Angeles with her husband, their two sons, and a Chihuahua named Mochi.


She is also a member of the Romance Writers of America and Los Angeles Romance Authors and winner of the 2009 EPPIE Award for Best Fantasy/Paranormal Erotic Romance.
