Kathi lives in southeast Wisconsin on a small farm with her husband, a handful of Australian Shepherds, Her Royal Highness Princess Fionna (the cat) and assorted livestock. Growing up as the youngest daughter of a librarian, she spent more time between stacks of books and secluded away in the dusty archives than was probably even remotely normal. With so many characters and ideas spinning in her head she had to get them out onto paper or risk what little sanity she possessed. Kathi has been spending her free time sitting in front of some type of keyboard or another since she was a kid and got her first typewriter. It wasn’t even electric. Before that it was pen and paper which she still resorts to from time to time. She has published a few poems and non-fiction articles but her real passion is fantasy and urban fantasy. When not writing she trains and trials working Australian Shepherds, paints, dabbles in photography, graphic design and anything else creative her assorted muses send her way. Her first fantasy novel, tentatively titled Between Darkness and Light will be making the rounds this year in search of a home.
