Kate McMurray writes smart romantic fiction. She likes creating stories that are brainy, funny, and of course sexy, with regular guy characters and urban sensibilities. She advocates for romance stories by and for everyone. When she’s not writing, she edits textbooks, watches baseball, plays violin, crafts things out of yarn, and wears a lot of cute dresses. She’s active in Romance Writers of America, serving for two years on the board of Rainbow Romance Writers, the LGBT romance chapter, and three—including two as president—on the board of the New York City chapter. She lives in Brooklyn, NY, with two cats and too many books.

I have some ideas for a sequel; if I can figure out how to do it in a way that works for all of the characters, I will.

Here’s a little taste of Damage Control my new romantic suspense, second chance romance novel.


“Leaving you was the hardest thing I ever did. I did it for what were probably selfish reasons. It wasn’t anything you did and it wasn’t that I stopped loving you. I think a part of me probably always will.” Somewhat alarmed that he’d confessed that much, Park stared at the floor. When he looked up ag...

Josephine Myles Hi Kate - thanks for the friendvite! I keep meaning to read your books because I hear so many good things about them, but being a Brit I'm mystified by baseball. Actually, I'm mystified by cricket too, so that's no excuse :)
