Kat Martin

Currently living near Missoula, Montana, Kat Martin is the bestselling author of over sixty-five Historical and Contemporary Romantic Suspense novels. The New York Times bestselling author of the AGAINST series, before Kat started writing in 1985, she was a real estate broker. During that time, she met her husband, L. J. Martin, also an author with over 33 book-length works. Kat is a graduate of the University of California at Santa Barbara, where she majored in Anthropology and also studied History. “I love anything old,” Kat says. “I love to travel and especially like to visit the places where my books are set. My husband and I often stay in out-of-the-way inns and houses built in times past. It’s fun and it gives a wonderful sense of a by-gone era.”

To date, Kat has over sixteen million copies of her books in print. She is published in more than twenty foreign countries, including Germany, France, Norway, Sweden, China, Korea, Bulgaria, Russia, England, South Africa, Italy, Spain, Argentina, Japan and Greece.
