ABOUT KATHERINE



New York Times bestselling Seattle-born author Katherine Stone set about plotting her life’s journey at a very young age.  At age five she knew she hoped to become a doctor. Then, after writing her first short story at age 11, she knew she’d love to be a writer, too.

 

In pursuit of that youthful dream, Katherine attended Stanford University, where she completed her premed requirements while majoring in English.  She received her M.D. from the University of Washington. Following her internal medicine residency in San Francisco, she accepted a fellowship in infectious diseases in Los Angeles.

 

What remains one of the world’s largest outbreaks of Legionnaires’ disease coincided with her fellowship, which gave her the opportunity to write and lecture on this mysterious new disease. But it was not all work and no play.  There was also romance in L.A.  It was there (during a spinal tap!) that she met her future husband, physician and novelist Jack Chase.

 

While she had accomplished the first half of her young-life goals, Katherine never really got around to the second part—being a writer—until Jack bought her a word processor and urged her to “Just do it.”  The result? Bestselling books in the distinctive Katherine Stone style:  a marriage of lyrical prose, evocative emotion and, above all, romance.

 

“There’s nothing wrong with incurable romanticism,” the physician asserts.  “I love writing about nice people, who are giving life their best shot despite the sometimes monumental obstacles I place in their paths and who discover, despite those obstacles, the splendor and power of love.”

 

Although Katherine has hung up her stethoscope for the moment and is writing full-time at her home near Seattle, her medical background is often evident in her books.  “I very much enjoy sharing my passion for medicine—its drama, its emotion and yes, its science—with my readers.”

 
The author of 21 novels, including Twins, Bel Air, Love Songs, and Pearl Moon, Katherine’s books have been translated into 20 languages and sold worldwide. She is in the process of publishing all 21 novels in ebook and trade paperback formats. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with Jack and their three much beloved canine girls . . .
