Katherine is completing a Ph.D. in American and New England Studies at BostonUniversity, which included teaching a research seminar on New England witchcraft. The idea for her debut novel, The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane, developed while she was studying for her doctoral qualifying exams, walking her dog through the woods between Marblehead and Salem.
She lives in Marblehead, Massachusetts with her husband and assorted animals
