Katherine Pine is addicted to shoujo manga and black tea. Though she's only in her mid-twenties, she lives in a retirement community in the Pacific Northwest. Alright, so maybe it isn't officially a retirement community, but the age of the average person is about 62. As a result Katherine has grown accustomed to epic bingo battles and losing terribly at Bridge. When she's not writing she knits, tries to convince slugs that her compost pile is much tastier than her vegetable garden, and gets bossed around by her cats.
