From a young age, Kathleen empathized with storybook monsters and the creatures who lived under her bed. Drawn to the strange and unusual, her healthy obsession with history and the occult sculpted fictional worlds steeped in dark magic and ominous folklore.

While working as a graphic designer, her love of comics, visual storytelling, and classical arts inspired her to craft tales with a quirky style and vibrant imagery. She recently signed a five-book contract with Scarsdale Publishing for her debut fantasy series: Otherworldly.

Kathleen lives in Pennsylvania with her husband and frighteningly brilliant toddler. You can follow Kathleen on Twitter @KathleenBednar_ or check out her website
