Kathryn Louise Wood
I am an author of historical fiction with supernatural and/or science fiction twists. I love researching the eras of which I write and enjoy sharing some of my discoveries on my blog.
My first novel, Sea Snow- the gentle haunting of a 19th century lighthouse, is the journal of a young lighthouse keeper’s bride in which she records the daily joys and challenges of her new life at the turn of the 20th century as well as the other-worldly events that unlock the secrets haunting the Massachusetts lighthouse and the nearby village. http://seasnowhauntedlighthouse.com/
I am currently writing the first novel in my new Young Adult series, Time Shadow, about a 16 year old girl from Edenton, North Carolina who is launched into the past to solve a 300 year old murder mystery with repercussions affecting not only her own future happiness but the fate of the entire planet.
My dear husband and I live with our 2 dogs in a tiny old cottage sagging with books and quirky charm in Edenton, NC.
