Katie Urban


My writing is inspired by my lifelong passion for archaeology, which has woven a thread through all my life's decisions; from studying Classical and Near Eastern Archaeology in undergrad to completing the placement for my MA in Museum Studies at the Roman Baths Museum in the UK, and to my day job as a museum educator at an archaeology museum.
Archaeology is the thread that weaves through my first novel Silver Locket Secrets as well. Reflecting my experiences excavating and travelling in the deserts of Jordan and Egypt and my love of a good mystery this fantasy adventure follows Kassie, a young woman with a famous grandfather, as she discovers the secrets hidden beneath the surface of her family and their world.
