Kate Bigel writes stories, there is definitely kissing in them. 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. She worked on PC and console computer games, lots of military RTS and FPS games. It was lots of fun and continues to inspire her writing. She loves adventure and spent five years on a sailboat traveling around the Pacific with her husband and young son. Currently, she lives in beautiful Southern California. Kate, who has over four thousand books on two different devices, is grateful for e-books because otherwise, the boat would have sunk by now.
