Kate Boorman and I met at the Surrey International Writers’ Conference a few years go, and she’s been a member of my tribe ever since. Hers is one of the first faces I look for (and it’s easy to spot, way up there above the crowd), and not just to shop for books with, or go for drinks in the hotel bar with. (Lavender gimlets? Why, thank you!) She’s is smart, funny, and all-around good company. And she writes good books!
Kate A. Boorman is a writer from the Canadian prairies. She was born in Nepal and grew up in the small town of Rimbey, where the winters are long and the spring thaw is a highly-anticipated event. Kate has a MA in Dramatic Critical Theory and a resumé full of an assortment of jobs. She lives in Edmonton, Alberta with her family, and spends her free time sitting under starry skies with her friends and scheming up travel to faraway lands. The WINTERKILL trilogy is her young adult debut series.
