Kate Langan

Biography

Kate Langan loves words; long ones, short ones, old and new ones, and she has strung some together to create her most recent work: “The Grand Plan, A Tale of Romance, Crime and Boatbuilding,” which she hopes that you will enjoy reading as much as she enjoyed writing.
Kate won two awards for her first book “The Art of Worship: The Vision and Craft of Contemporary Nova Scotian Artists.”(Nimbus Publishing Ltd, Halifax, 2001,) which was published in conjunction with an exhibit curated by her at the Mary E. Black Gallery in Jan/Feb 2002. She is the author of over seventy five magazine articles published both nationally and internationally, and several radio programs aired on CBC Radio One. Her first ebook, “Beulah in Bethlehem,” was published on SMASHWORDS.COM. “The Grand Plan, A Tale of Romance, Crime and Boatbuilding” utilizes her experiences building wooden boats as an instructor with The Nova Scotia Sea School, and is her first novel.
Kate lives with her husband John and their two cats in a cottage on a hill overlooking Halifax Harbor in Nova Scotia.
