Katherine Starbird is an award-winning American author of fiction, born and raised in coastal Florida. A life-long fascination with religious and mystical beliefs, folk tales, legends, and romanticism combine in her work as a blend of fantasy and realism.
Kate spent much of her childhood on and around the water. On the flats off Pinellas Point in her hometown of St. Petersburg, she collected shells and hunted sea critters. On vacations and weekends, the family sailed their yawl in Tampa Bay and to far off destinations. Adventuring on the water gave Kate ample time to dream up fantastical stories. Not surprisingly, many were about young people and the ocean.
Kate lives with her husband and children in Longwood, Florida. She still enjoys dreaming up stories. Now she writes them into novels so others can join her adventure.
