A late bloomer, kathryn finished college in her early thirties, and spent nearly twenty years writing for magazines."It's been a lot of fun, and, in the process, I've contributed more than 100 articles to national magazines that include: Ladies' Home Journal, TV Guide, Rolling Stone, Texas Monthly, Seventeen, MORE, Town & Country, and Readers' Digest" Kathryn said. Some of Kathryn's books are: EVIL BESIDE HER (formerly titled THE RAPIST'S WIFE). Following that, along came Susan White, Kent McGowen and A WARRANT TO KILL. Then she was off to Austin for the next three books, the first SHE WANTED IT ALL, on the Celeste Beard case, followed by DIE, MY LOVE, on the Piper Rountree case, set in Austin/?Houston/? and Richmond, Virginia. Her most recent true crime book, A DESCENT INTO HELL, on the Colton Pitonyak case, is a truly tragic Austin case, deeply troubling. The research took her into the world of college kids, drugs, sex, and guns. In DESCENT, three college-age kids with the whole world ahead of them slide into dangerous territory, and two end up committing a terrible, terrible crime. Finally, after two decades covering crime, she has relied on her experiences and expanded into fiction. The result: SINGULARITY, her first novel, published by St. Martin's Minotaur. The first in a series, SINGULARITY introduces Lieutenant Sarah Armstrong, the Texas Rangers' lone profiler, as she hunts a seriously strange killer. The case quickly takes over Armstrong's life and nearly destroys her. The second in the series, BLOOD LINES, is now out, and THE CROSSROADS is scheduled for fall 2010.
