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.

More recently, 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 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 a Victorian-era world, magic is real and spells and potions are the focus of academic study. A debutante-turned-animal escapes her sheltered life. Civil servants adopt disguises and fall in love. An enigmatic magician stalks the capital's streets, tracked by a burgeoning police force. The books in the Roesia series can be read on their own, but readers may wish to start with Aubrey. Meet the erstwhile villain in the series as a villain first! The stories in Tales of the Quest provide a comprehensive overview of the sorcery that can bring to its practitioners stark tragedy, poignant comedy, and unexpected joy.
