About Katherine Woodbury

Katherine Woodbury reveres Jane Austen, "Columbo," classic fairy tales, and cats.

The author of twenty-five published short stories and seven novellas, Katherine (Kate) has spent her writing career tackling mermaids, bemused cops, Greek heroes, Joan of Arc, a devil's assistant, aliens with wings, and a not-quite-dead Viking funeral bride.

Now she's turned her writing hand to a mystery series with a no-nonsense detective and paranormal elements.

All good mysteries are grounded in social behavior. Kate began her apprenticeship of human idiosyncrasies with tributes to eighteenth and nineteenth century classics: "A Man of Few Words" (based on "Pride & Prejudice"), "Persuadable" ("Persuasion"), and "Mr. B Speaks!" (Samuel Richardson's "Pamela").

Next came the Victorian fantasy series, The Roesia Chronicles, so far including "Aubrey: Remnants of Transformation," "Richard: The Ethics of Affection," "Lord Simon: The Dispossession of Hannah," and her most recent publication, "Tales of the Quest."

As well as a writer (and reader) of fantasy, history, mystery, and romance, Kate (Katherine) enjoys watching classic sitcoms, collecting manga, and her day-job: teaching humanities courses at Maine community colleges.

About the Series: Roesia
In this world, some countries have knights, and some have dragons. Roesia has bureaucrats, social climbers, and magic. Bounded by the sea on one side, superpowers and (supposedly) less advanced countries on the other, Roesia struggles to progress politically and scientifically. Moral improvement is left to each individual's own devices. Aristocrats, ministers, police, criminals, and the rising middle-class tread their own (and occasionally treacherous) paths to new identities, romantic relationships, and redemption.
