Katharine Swan is a freelancer living in Denver, Colorado.  An avid reader and writer since childhood, getting her degree in literature was the most natural thing in the world.  After a year-long stint as a technical writer, she started freelancing full-time, writing online marketing copy for clients.  After nearly six years of that, she finally found her way back to writing fiction with the help of NaNoWriMo and a lot of plot ninjas.

A flapper at heart and a fan of vampire fiction, Katharine has enjoyed tagging along for Ruby's adventures.  When she's not rewriting the history of organized crime in the Roaring Twenties, you can usually find her curled up somewhere with her nose in a book.  If she's not there, she's probably out at the barn, riding her soul-horse, Panama, who is neither a vampire nor a plot ninja, but inspires her all the same.
