Meet the Author: Katherine Wynter

  • McQuixote Books & Coffee 1512 Portland Ave Louisville, KY, 40203 United States (map)

Join us for an evening with regional author Katherine Wynter. Katherine is a horror and fantasy novelist living just up the river in Cincinnati. She will be at the shop in support of her novel, Blackout, and provide a first look at her newest release, Keeper Chronicles: Awakening. Come pick up a copy of the books, hear some readings over coffee, get your copy signed, and chat with the author about her passion for writing

Katherine fell in love with the horror and fantasy genres at a young age, hiding in libraries whenever she had the chance and reading till they made her leave – usually by throwing her book out the door so she was forced to follow. When she was old enough for an allowance, she spent it exclusively at bookstores and began building her own library which has grown and been donated only to grow again like a bookish vestigial tail. Although she once planned a career in genetic engineering so she could create her own time traveling dragon, she abandoned this profession when it became clear that sometimes the best science lives only in the imagination of readers. (Okay, her friends pointing out that said dragon, should she create it, would probably just end up having her for lunch instead of letting her ride its back may have also influenced that decision.)

On a less crunchy note, Katherine lives in Cincinnati, Ohio, with her husband and three insane cats of doom and destruction. 

Her first novella was released in April 2014 by Under the Moon Press. Keeper Chronicles: Awakening, an urban fantasy novel, is scheduled for release in November 2014 by Geminid Press, LLC, and Reaper Legacy: Hunt for the Lost Raven is scheduled for the winter 2014 from Under the Moon. Please see the Books tab for more information about her writings.

She’s always happy to answer questions or hear from readers. You can email her at katherinewynter@yahoo.com
