Katherine Gilbert

Biography

Katherine Gilbert was born at house number 1313 and then transplanted to a crumbling antebellum ruin so gothic that The Munsters would have run from it. She has since gained several ridiculously-impractical degrees in English and Religious and Women's Studies. She now teaches at a South Carolina community college, where all her students think, correctly, that she is very, very strange, indeed.

While Katherine Gilbert is the author of several sweet paranormal romance/urban fantasy novels, when the werewolves, witches, angels, and their friends are on vacation, she transforms into her alter-ego, Kat Samuels, writer of steamy contemporary and historical romance.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I spent my childhood in a 19th-century horror of a house. Many people refused to enter it. I never argued. I wished I could do the same.

It's hard not to have an interest in the weird and gothic, given that. It's also hard not to want to find a little humor in life to make it brighter.
When did you first start writing?
I started by writing fanfiction, mostly stories which filled in the blanks in the show and didn't require much plot beyond the one the show already provided. Once the show was over, though, I started writing alternate universe stories. When I finally wrote one which went to something like 200 chapters and took three years to write, I realized that it might be time to branch out into my own fiction and characters.
