Kat Latham wrote her first novel when she was eight. The hero was Frankenstein’s monster (Frank). The only scene she can remember has him driving a red convertible Corvette to pick up his date, who reminds him to put on his nice-young-man mask before they go ice skating.
And that was at least fifteen years before paranormal romance and shapeshifters became popular! If only she’d finished it. She could be a kajillionaire now.
Instead, she’s changed her focus to contemporary romance, which may never make her rich but certainly makes her happy.
With degrees in English lit and human rights, she loves stories that reflect the depth, humor and emotion of real life. Apparently her work’s not complete rubbish, either, because she’s won some contests! Her manuscript All Things Easy has been awarded first place in the Golden Pen, Between the Sheets, and Ignite the Flame contests. Huzzah!
Kat’s an American working as a web editor in the UK, and she spent three years teaching English from British textbooks to international students in the Czech Republic, so if you think her spelling and vocab is weird, you should hear her accent. If something she writes looks strange to you, she’d appreciate it if you’d assume it’s correct in whatever country you’re not from.
When she’s not writing, she can usually be found blogging or tweeting overly personal information. She loves meeting other readers and writers online, so follow her on Twitter or subscribe to her blog and say hello!
