About the Author

Kathleen Heady

Author Bio

Kathleen Heady grew up telling stories – to pass the time, or just to exercise her imagination. She spent her childhood on a farm in southern Illinois, where she was fortunate to have parents who encouraged her to study, read, and learn about the world.
She is the author of four mystery novels featuring protagonist Nara Blake and is at work on a fifth. She also has a young adult historical fantasy titled Jewels in Time and hopes to eventually write a sequel.
She is a member of Sisters in Crime, a national organization to promote crime and mystery writers, especially women, and has had short stories published in their anthologies.
Kathleen has spent most of her professional life as a high school teacher, teaching English, Spanish and social studies. Besides rural Illinois, she has lived in Chicago, Costa Rica, Colorado, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and now North Carolina.
She shares her “almost a tree house” home with her husband and two cats, Macavity and Violeta. She has a daughter, two sons, two daughters-in-law, a grandson and a granddaughter who are all really cool people.
