Kathryn Lane, originally from Mexico, took the long road to becoming an author. She started work life as an artist in oil painting, but soon discovered that lead to a starving artist lifestyle. To earn a living, she became a certified public accountant and enjoyed a career in international finance with a major multinational corporation.

As an author, Kathryn draws deeply from her experiences growing up in a small town in Mexico as well as her work and travel in over ninety countries around the globe. In her youth, she lived in a story-centric culture where reality blended with the surreal in perfect harmony – a dichotomy that developed her ability to form mental images of characters and stories that spring to life.

Kathryn loves the Arts and is a board member of the Montgomery County Literary Arts Council. Kathryn and her husband, Bob Hurt, split their time between Texas and the mountains of northern New Mexico where she finds it inspiring to write.
