Katey Hawthorne is writer of superpowered and paranormal romance, even though the only degree she holds is in the history of art. (Or, possibly, because the only degree she holds is in the history of art.) An increasingly diverse cast people her stories, though she has a decided bias in favor of bisexual characters and causes. She loves a happy ending, though a little darkness often carries over from her horror writing on the side. She reads everything from splatterpunk to regency romance to historical nonfiction with gusto. Her work is often inspired by the comic books she read growing up, and continues to read to this day.
Originally from the Appalachian foothills of West Virginia, Katey currently lives in Columbus, Ohio, with her family, two cats, and one very large puppy. Animal rescues get a big thumbs-up in her house. In her spare time she enjoys travel, B-movies, loud music, video games, Epiphones, and Irish whiskey (especially Bushmills). She is an unashamed fangirl when it comes to Spider-Man, Dragon Age, any number of rock bands, and several other pursuits—and collects nerdy tattoos like she’s trying to prove it.
