Kate Worth


Kate Worth lives on a farm in Central Virginia with her wonderful husband Jeff, their four children, three cats, a hound dog, and God only knows how many squirrels, bunnies, skunks, raccoons, and mice. (The dog and cats are very lazy.) She spends her days writing, reading, gardening, and painting… basically anything that doesn’t bear the slightest resemblance to housework.

Kate lived a nomadic childhood, moving every year or two as her father was assigned to a new post throughout his career with the State Department. She and her family were evacuated during the revolution in Iran, watched tanks roll through the streets of Quito, Ecuador from their attic windows during a coup d’etat, survived an Oktoberfest bombing in Munich and a massive earthquake in Chile that walked their refrigerator across the kitchen floor… all events that fired her fertile imagination.
She began her career as a journalist then meandered into graphic design, illustration, and baby making for a decade before returning to her first love… writing. Now she pens the types of novels she likes to read… well-researched historical romances with complex, swoon-worthy heroes and strong, interesting heroines.

In her spare time Kate collects Victorian etiquette manuals, old newspapers and magazines about life in pre-1900s England, and first-person travelogues from the Golden Age of travel.
She loves reader feedback and always responds to emails. Drop her a note at KateWorthRomance@yahoo.com or visit her website: KateWorth.com where she shares some of the interesting, little known bits of history she has picked up along the way. Her blog chronicles her journey as a writer and her struggle to carve a place for her work in a rapidly changing field.
