About the Author

Katherine Ladny Mitchell wrote her first literary work - bound with rainbow-colored shoelaces - at age seven. Decades later, she still delights in weaving words together to craft intriguing, uplifting stories. 

A graduate of Covenant College with a B.A. in Sociology, Katherine has freelanced for years with narratives and articles in Tea Time Magazine, Chicken Soup for the Soul, a local health magazine, and a couple anthologies. She's also authored three books available on (all ranked 4.7 stars or higher) and signed a book contract with Bandersnatch Books in September 2023 for her new cozy murder mystery series. The first book is due to be released in the summer of 2025!

When she's not writing, you can find Katherine singing and dancing, taking tea with her husband, caring for 50+ animals on her new TN homestead, and educating her five Mitchell munchkins. She also enjoys fire-breathing and fire poi-twirling on occasion - just to shake things up.
