Katina French


Hi, I’m Katina French, aka KatFrench: gen-x wife, mom, writer, web marketing nerd and follower of Christ.

I’ve been married for over twenty years(!) to my high school sweetheart. We live in southern Indiana near Louisville, KY with two amazingly creative, funny, opinionated kids.

Writing has been what I love doing most since I was five, and my vocation since I was 18. I’ve written everything from lullabies to radio commercials to technical specifications for military weapons simulators. I've written social content from the perspective of a brassiere, a beach, an automotive battery and a bottle of bourbon (yes, my marketing career has clearly been brought to you by the letter "B").

Right now, I'm returning to my first love, writing fiction. My specialty at the moment is steampunk retellings of classic fairy tales, but I also love contemporary fantasy and old-fashioned, unpretentious space opera. If you like fast-paced fantastical fiction with a sense of humor, give my stories a try.
