Kathryn Purdie

Kathryn Purdie

Kathryn Purdie is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Burning Glass series, the Bone Grace duology, and The Forest Grimm duology. Her love of storytelling began as a young girl when her dad told her, in his own words, the story of To Kill a Mockingbird while they listened to the film score together. Enchanted, she began her own attempts at storytelling, which usually led to home video productions featuring her younger sister as the nerd or maid, while she reserved the role of the glamorous movie star or princess. Don’t worry; her sister got her revenge.

In high school, Kathryn focused on acting and won first place for a monologue at a prestigious statewide Shakespearean competition. When she wasn’t on the stage, Kathryn spent her time composing sappy poetry and completing at least ten pages in her journal every night. Her author dad edited her school papers and taught her the art of writing. She went on to study acting in college and at The Oxford School of Drama in England. (All that character analysis transferred nicely to writing!)

The writing bug bit Kathryn when she was in recovery from donating a kidney to her older brother. She found her old stash of short stories, and the inspiration for her first novel struck. She’s been writing fantastical stories ever since.

A lover of art in all forms, Kathryn also enjoys singing and playing the guitar. Her husband is equally artistic. They keep busy raising three wonderful and creative children.
