Day-dreamer and committed late-sleeper, Katherine Bayless writes paranormal fantasy and romance for fun and occasional profit. When she isn’t adventuring vicariously through her stories or playing chauffeur to her three teenagers, Katherine crafts hand-made greeting cards, lays waste to the Scourge in World Of Warcraft, and indulges various addictions to cooking shows, science documentaries, and digital photography.
Katherine's writing career began when she wondered what a clairvoyant's life would be like, an idea that sparked her imagination and added 'creative writing' to her brimming list of hobbies. In her pre-Mommy life, Katherine worked as a software engineer in the game industry, where she not only met her awesome husband but also discovered her passion for fantasy stories and role-playing games.
Over the past twenty years, she has moved eleven times, calling California, Oregon, Washington, and Illinois home states at one time or another. She currently lives happily in view of Central Oregon's ancient volcanoes with her husband, three children, a sweet but shamelessly spoiled whippet named Patches, and Zeke, a cabinet-opening, treat-stealing commando that doesn't know his own name because everyone just calls him Cat.
Although Katherine freely admits she'd rather live inside her head and write stories instead of blog posts, she always makes the time to respond to emails and blog comments.
