Kate Kelly has had a love affair with books her entire life. Writing came in fits and starts, and she didn’t take it seriously until her forties. Now she can’t get along without it. She finaled in the RWA Golden Heart contest, 2001, and won the Daphne du Maurier (unpubbed) 2006. She has the good fortune to live on the east coast of Canada with her husband. She writes, grows herbs and perennials and sails when the wind blows her way.
