Katherine Reay has enjoyed a life-long love affair with the works of Jane Austen and her contemporaries and can’t seem to leave them out of anything she writes. She left them behind for a bit in college and studied history and sociology at Northwestern University and earned a Master’s degree in marketing from there as well. After a few years working in marketing and a few moves, including stops in England and Ireland, Katherine and her family now reside in Seattle, WA, where she spends her days running, writing, cooking and trying to clean the house and keep up with the laundry.
You can also find Katherine at http://www.katherinereay.com on Twitter @katherine_reay as well as lurking somewhere within the pages of her first novel, Dear Mr. Knightley. She’s also lurking in her second novel, Lizzy and Jane, but you can’t find her there until November 2014.
