Kathleen Baldwin loves adventure. Her mom died when she was thirteen, but life rolls on. She roamed the Rockies skiing and rock–climbing, enjoyed way too many classes in college, wandered the desert, was stalked by a cougar, lost an argument with a rattlesnake, fell in love at least a dozen times, was proposed to eleven times, finally met and married her own personal hero, and together they've raised four free–spirited adventurous children.
An award–winning author and illustrator – Kensington published four of Kathleen Baldwin's Regency romantic comedies, including Mistaken Kiss, a Holt Medallion finalist. Her upcoming series STRANJE HOUSE, A School for Unusual Girls, Tor/Forge Books, won a Marlene in 2012.
Kat adores the wit and humor of Oscar Wilde, P.G. Wodehouse, and Jane Austen. But her eclectic reading interests bounce from Frank Herbert to Meg Cabot, and on to the delightfully imaginative tales of Diana Wynne Jones.
