Kathy Tyers’ Firebird series helped launch the genre of Christian speculative fiction, with the interest of Steve Laube—then with Bethany House—who was willing to take a risk on this new project. In her career, she has published ten novels in the Christian and general markets, two of which were Lucasfilm®-licensed installments of the official Star Wars Expanded Universe.
Kathy recently completed her Master of Christian Studies from Regent College in Vancouver, BC. She then returned home to Montana where she is currently working on a contemporary fantasy and mentoring several apprentice writers through the Christian Writers Guild. Kathy is widowed, has one son and enjoys playing the flute.
