Thanks for checking out my website. I’m Kate Christie, a lesbian fiction writer currently residing in the Pacific Northwest. As of April 2020, I am the author of 15 books, mostly novels but with a couple of nonfiction titles thrown in there, too. I decided I wanted to be a writer when I was 10, and finally, more than 30 years later, I was able to quit my day job and now write full time.
I was born and raised in Kalamazoo, Michigan, where I learned to love soccer and writing equally. I left the Midwest for college in Western Massachusetts (Smith, woot!), and then moved to Seattle after college. Except for a brief return to Western Mass in the early 2000s–just in time for gay marriage to be legalized there–I’ve called Washington State home since 1995.
In addition to being an author of lesbian fiction, I am the parent of three amazing daughters. My wife Kris gave birth to our first daughter, Alex, in February 2011, and our twins Ellie and Sydney followed in April 2013. The girls are finally old enough to play 2 v. 2 small-sided soccer games (yes!), which we try to do as often as we can.
My first three novels were published by Bella Books, but now I typically publish my books with my own imprint, Second Growth Books. To find out more about my writing, check out the writing category on this website or visit the Books page. Thanks for visiting, and happy reading!
