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. My current publication schedule is a little bonkers, but an In Hot Pursuit sequel is definitely in the realm of possibility. (less)

You may know that I am a huge baseball fan. Game 1 of the World Series is tonight, which is very exciting! And you may have wandered over to this website thinking, “I heard Kate wrote that baseball romance, what was it called again?”

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 :)
