International Bestselling Author Kathrin Hutson has been writing Dark Fantasy, Sci-Fi, and LGBTQ Speculative Fiction since 2000. With her wildly messed-up heroes, excruciating circumstances, impossible decisions, and Happily Never Afters, she’s a firm believer in piling on the intense action, showing a little character skin, and never skimping on violent means to bloody ends. Kathrin is an active member of SFWA and HWA and lives in Vermont with her husband, daughter, and two dogs.

Sometimes it's really hard, admittedly, and I look at it like starting a new workout routine or diet. The most pain happens in the very beginning, when it all just seems like too much. But that initial resistance is the body's/mind's way of telling me that I'm on the verge of something really big, and as long as I push through, the results are electrifying. Then it seems I just can't stop.(less)

The first is that I get to make up whatever I want, to delve deep into emotions, situations, characters, and worlds in whatever way I see fit. There's a certain reality I experience through my own work that I just can't give up.

The second is that I get to inspire readers in whatever ways are suitable for them. My goal is to illicit reactions in readers - whether it's joy, sadness, heart-pounding excitement, sweaty palms, rage, annoyance, or anticipation. As long as somebody feels SOMETHING when they read my work, I've done my job.(less)
