Kathy Lynn Emerson began writing as a child: a newspaper for her dolls and then a rambling adventure series featuring characters from all her favorite television shows. In addition to contemporary, historical and time-travel romance (some written under the pen-name of Kaitlyn Gorton) and historical novels written as Kate Emerson, Kathy has written children's books, non-fiction, short stories, and historical mysteries. She won the Agatha award for mystery nonfiction for How to Write Killer Historical Mysteries. At present, she writes two contemporary cozy mystery series as Kaitlyn Dunnett and maintains the website “A Who’s Who of Tudor Women” at TudorWomen.com.

Message to Readers

Dear readers. At some point, this site changed the automatic posting of the Maine Crime Writer’s blog, to which I contribute twice a month, to look as if it was my personal blog and listed my website instead of www.MaineCrimeWriters.com as the source.
