First published in 2007, Kathryn Albright writes western historical romance for Harlequin. Her stories celebrate courage and hope and love against all odds with a dash of adventure. Her award-winning books are inspired by the real people and events of the past and have been described as being tender and emotionally gripping against a backdrop of authenticity.
Kathryn grew up in southern California where many of her books are based. A career in high-risk obstetrical nursing and sonography did little to dim her desire to write. She was first published in non-fiction in a national nursing journal.
When she sent her very first short story to a contest in Redbook Magazine, she placed–which encouraged her to continue with her writing. After her first full-length manuscript made the finals in the Golden Heart contest for unpublished writers, Harlequin published it in 2007 as The Angel and the Outlaw. Since then, she has continued to write historical romance, mostly for Harlequin. She lives in the Midwest with her husband and sons and now writes full-time.
Kathryn often attends conferences and workshops on writing to keep abreast of the changing publishing landscape. She has attended RWA’s national conference, the ACFW conference and several local conferences. She also judges contests — the RITA for published authors and the FabFive for unpublished writers.
Kathryn is a member of RWA, ACFW, and NINC. Please visit her website at www.kathrynalbright.com to learn more about her and her books.
