Katherine once specialized in advanced areas of naval operations and is now a Chaplain in the Canadian Armed Forces.

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. 

Katherine is from Calgary, located in the Treaty 7 region on the territories of the Blackfoot Confederacy. Her heritage includes a Huguenot rebel, a lost fortune, a Rhodes scholar WWII hero, and a stunning Swede she was named after. She grew up in a household of advanced musicians which gave her an intrinsic sense of harmony which shows up in all areas of her life.

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. She proudly serves as Honorary Assistant in Christ Church Cathedral Ottawa. Her family, friends, fellow sailors, teachers, and mentors have supported her. She thanks them 🖤.
