About me

Kate Dolan writes award-winning historical fiction and romance under her own name and children’s books and contemporary mysteries under the name K.D. Hays. A professional writer since 1992, Kate has written everything from legal analysis to a weekly newspaper column on religion. She holds a degree in English, history and drama from The Catholic University of America and a law degree from The University of Richmond, but prefers to work with kids rather than lawyers because the former are generally better behaved. Originally from Chicago, she now lives outside Baltimore with her husband, son, daughter and way too many pets. When she’s not writing, you can find her coaching jump rope, demonstrating 18th Century cooking and laundry techniques, driving a carpool somewhere or walking a handful of dogs.
