Kay is forty-something wife and mother, born and raised in the Midwest. During the day, she is a high school teacher. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends. Her favorite pastime is reading and writing romance novels about the dopeness of BLACK LOVE.
Kathy Douglass came by her love of reading naturally – both of her parents were readers. When she was little, she would “find” books on the dining room table or piano bench and immediately sit down and read them. As she grew she continued to read, starting a new book as soon as she finished one. Then she attended law school and traded romances for legal opinions.
After the birth of her two children, her love of reading turned into a love of writing. Kathy now spends her days writing the small town contemporary novels she enjoys reading. She is currently published by Harlequin Special Edition.
