Katheryn is a programmer by day, writer by night. A lover of all things supernatural and helpless romantic at heart, she spends most of her writing time coming up with stories that incorporate at least one of the two. So far, she’s only published one book and a few short stories, but she intends to publish more work in the future. She lives with her boyfriend, Eric, and her puppy, Ada.

Unfortunately writing isn't my full time job so I can't pump it out as fast as I'd like. For reference, Reckoning took me the better part of a decade to get complete.
