Kat Latham writes sexy contemporary romance set all around the world. Her debut novel, Knowing the Score, is due to be published by Carina Press on August 5, 2013.
Kat’s a California girl who worked as an editor in London for five years and now lives among the Dutch, so if you think her spelling’s messed up you should hear her accent.
With degrees in English lit and human rights, she loves reading and writing stories that reflect the depth, humor and emotion of real life. She’s been fortunate enough to win some contests, including the Golden Pen and Ignite the Flame, though her Mom is most proud of Kat winning the sex-scene contest, Between the Sheets.
Through her British husband (Dr Smarty Pants, PhD), Kat’s gained a keen appreciation for rugby, cricket, and the sound of a pucka English accent saying words ending in ‘-er’. He’s inspired her to start writing a series about hot rugby players with incredibly sexy voices. The first in the series, Knowing the Score, will be published by Carina Press in summer 2013.
Kat’s other career involves writing and editing for charities, and she’s had the privilege of traveling to Kenya, Ethiopia, Bosnia and Northern Ireland to write about the heroic people helping their communities survive poverty, inequality and hunger.
After spending her entire adult life living in big cities – Chicago, Los Angeles, Prague and London – she now lives in a small town in the rural Netherlands which is surrounded by miles and miles of green pasture, canals and Shetland ponies. Kat’s slowly adjusting to life in a place where bicycles and cows seem to outnumber people.
Kat is represented by Laura Bradford of the Bradford Literary Agency.
