Kate Brallier is a native of New York
City's Upper West Side. As a child, her family spent summers
on a forested island in the DownEast region of Maine. Her
family bought six acres overlooking the sunsets of Penobscot Bay
but, lacking a house, they had to make do with tents
instead--quite a contrast to a New York apartment.
Despite a life-long obsession with
reading and writing, Kate trained as a biologist, attending Yale
University and the University of California at Irvine, before
throwing it all in for the exotic world of publishing.
She is a now a senior editor for a
major New York publisher, and tries her best to balance
married life, writing, editing, and a profound love of
Seal Island has been Kate's first try
at paranormal romance. She has enjoyed working with Tor
Paranormal Romance, and Kate has been very excited at the reception
Seal Island has received so far (see our Kind Words page for a sense
of what's got Kate smiling).
If you give her a chance, Kate will
tell you all about the stories that she and her friends wrote
together when they were suppose to be studying. (Whole novels
swapped between friends just to make other friends blush!)
Seal Island is a dream coming true.
