Kate Curran


California native Kate Curran has spent long hours behind the lens of a camera, wading through cow manure, rice paddies and orchards over her twenty-year career as a photojournalist specializing in agriculture. One day, while leaning on a corral fence, ankle deep in cow manure, Kate paused to consider if this was the life she’d envisioned when she’d been young and idealistic. Definitely not, and although she enjoyed her career as a photojournalist, she was ready to spread her wings and make a leap into something new—contemporary romances. Ironically, her books still carry an agriculture thread in them, some more than others.

Kate’s always been a believer in jumping into the deep end of the pool and learning
to swim later, whether it’s venturing into self-publishing, mountain biking or cross-country skiing. Is she an adventure junkie? Yes and no. She’s willing to try, but with caution since she’s not a fan of road rash. Kate’s characters, on the other hand, tend to be much more willing to drive blindfolded or leap into the unknown.

Kate’s favorite things: cuddling by the fire, ice cream, fresh-baked scones, mochas, and finding outdoor activities for every season, whether it’s swimming, skiing, mountain biking or a quiet stroll through the woods.
Happily married for over thirty-five years, she and her husband have two grown sons, a new grandbaby and a menagerie of animals—a black lab who thinks she’s human, a house cat that looks part bobcat, and half a dozen cottontails roaming freely on her property.

Kate loves—and writes—deeply emotional, feel-good stories. She gets her inspiration from movies like While You Were Sleeping, Return To Me, music, and from her own happily-ever-after. Her favorite place to plot out novels is swinging in a hammock on a warm spring day.

Also writing under Kathy Coatney, Kate has written two series of children’s books, From the Farm to the Table and The Adventures of Fisher the Wonder Dog.
