Biographical and Professional Information
Kat attended Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute as an undergrad and went on to receive an MFA in screenwriting from Northwestern University. She came up with the idea for her debut novel, Dark Life, during a writing exercise. Knowing that her 11-year-old son loved reading about the ocean, Wild West pioneers and the X-Men, she combined his interests and created a story premise that kept her up nights plotting and world-building. Kat also teaches screenwriting at Northwestern University.
