Kate Bigel combines imagination and magic with contemporary life in her stories. She grew up as her family’s designated bookworm and thought she was going to be a librarian. She ended up in art school painting fantastical stuff from her imagination and obtained a Masters of Fine Arts. Somehow she ended up working in computer games as an Art Director and a Producer. Sometime in the middle of that, she spent five years on a sailboat traveling around the Pacific with her husband and young son. Based in beautiful Southern California, Kate, who has over five thousand books on two different devices, is grateful for e-books because otherwise, the boat would have sunk by now.
