Katherine is from Calgary, located in the Treaty 7 region on the traditional territories of the Blackfoot Confederacy.
She has a background in music, fine arts, design, and naval warfare. She's a Chaplain in the Canadian Armed Forces. She once specialized in advanced areas of naval operations and now focuses on theology.
She travelled Europe as a toddler with her family, lived in Brazil as a teenager and was off grid in the Yukon Territory as a young woman. Her naval career has taken her all over the world and she has sailed many seas.
Her heritage includes a Huguenot rebel, a Rhodes scholar WWII hero, and a stunning Swede she was named after.
Katherine would call writing a passion, except it feels more like an affliction—her muse is demanding! There's a theme of redemption in Katherine's work and she uses humour to get up close to the tough stuff of life. They say humour and truth are related and she hopes you enjoy the irresistible pull of these forces like she does. All is Well makes use of the full spectrum of funny, from a light shimmering pink all the way to an inky blot out dark. You'll giggle, scoff, smirk, and gasp — she promises.
There are more stories on their way. Her literary agent, Stacey Kondla at The Rights Factory finds these stories good homes. All is Well, Katherine's debut, found the best home with Thistledown Press and is available from independent bookstores and online. Her family, friends, fellow sailors, teachers, and mentors have supported her. She thanks them 🖤.
