Katherine Starbird

Katherine Starbird is a fantasy author of fiction, born and raised in coastal Florida. Her stories spring from her life-long fascination with religious and mystical beliefs, folk tales, legends, and romanticism.

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.

Today, 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.
