About this author

Kat Falls lives in Evanston, IL with her husband, theater director Robert Falls, their three children, and a whole slew of pets. She grew up in Silver Spring, MD, attended Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute as an undergrad, and went on to receive an MFA from Northwestern University, where she now teaches.

Kat is the author of the middle-grade science fiction novels, Dark Life and Rip Tide, which she describes as “underwater westerns.”

She came up with the idea for Dark Life (Scholastic, 2010) during a writing exercise. Knowing that her 11-year-old son loved reading about the ocean, Wild West pioneers, and the X-Men, she combined his interests and created a story premise that kept her up nights plotting and world-building. Since then, Dark Lif...more



Hello and welcome to my website.
I'm Kat Falls, author of two scifi-adventure novels,Dark LifeandRip Tide, set (mostly) in the ocean. I wrote them with my own kids' reading preferences in mind. Meaning, I tried to keep the stories fast, fun, fresh and edging over-the- top. Actually, those are my favorite kind of books too – adventures that pull me into new worlds, dangerous and beautiful.

A good continuation of the series -- action-packed, funny and downright adorable at times. Well, Bones was anyway. I'll keep reading these.

I’m officially hooked on this series. It’s got a ferocity that thrills me. Mac is continually thinking and doing outrageous things. Better yet, those moments aren’t followed with two pages of regret and guilt. Now that’s refreshing. One small example...more

Another urban fantasy containing lots of familiar tropes for the genre, however, there are also plenty of story elements that makes this series a stand out. Those differences are also the reason why I thoroughly enjoyed Book 1 and am now 1/2 way thro...more

More of Kat's books…
“I think you glow more when you embarrassed. Maybe that's how you blush.”
Kat Falls, Dark Life

“Before I could turn to look up, a voice boomed from the heavens: "What the heck is going on down there?”
Kat Falls, Rip Tide

“They'll uncouple easily enough," Omar said dryly.
"You're wrong" Rafe met the man's one-eyed gaze head on.
My heart slowed. What was he doing?
Omar snorted. "You'll forget her in a week."
"Not a chance. I've loved her since I was ten, long before we even met"...
"So if you try to take her from me," Rafe went on lightly, though his eyes had a dangerous gleam, "I will stick a steel knife in your happily ever after and gouge out its guts”
Kat Falls, Inhuman
