Here is the current official bio: Kate Emerson is the pseudonym of a well-known writer of historical mysteries and nonfiction. She is not trying to confuse readers, only distinguish between two very different types of writing. Kate Emerson's historical novels are set in the Tudor era (England 1485-1603) and feature real but little known historical figures as the protagonists. Kate Emerson lives and writes in rural Western Maine, where she shares her home with her husband and three cats.
Well, okay. Kate is really Kathy Lynn Emerson, author of the Face Down Mysteries featuring Susanna Appleton, 16th century gentlewoman, herbalist, and sleuth, the award-winning How to Write Killer Historical Mysteries, and a wide assortment of other books. Speaking now as both Kate and Kathy, here's what I look like in 16th century dress, accompanied by a more or less recent picture of the uncostumed me.
I originally intended that this page would be added to from time to time, to give me, as Kate, a chance to ramble on about various topics of interest. Instead, there is now a separate page for updates and rambles which you will find by clicking here: Enjoy!
