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: Donna Howard Mysteries
The Donna Howard Mystery series connects the past with everyday modern life. Like many amateur detectives, Donna Howard didn't set out to be one. She also never wanted the supernatural ability to literally see historical figures strolling through her hometown of Portland, Maine. She only wanted to be a hairdresser, a good sister, and a decent girlfriend—until an ancient Roman coin embroiled her in a contemporary mystery. Tackling crimes that no one else can solve, Donna travels around the Northeastern United States, and to time periods as disparate as Ancient Rome and Tudor England.
