Kathleen Baldwin loves adventure in books AND in real life. She taught rock climbing in the Rockies, survival camped in the desert, was stalked by a mountain lion, lost an argument with a rattlesnake, spent way too long in college, fell in love a dozen times and finally married her very own hero. They’ve raised four free-spirited children.
She’s written several Amazon bestselling, award-winning Traditional Regency Romances. Her alternate history for teens, A SCHOOL FOR UNUSUAL GIRLS, was a Junior Library Guild selection. New York Times Sunday Review called it “enticing from the first sentence.” Texas library Association awarded Kathleen the 2016 Spirit of Texas for middle school reading programs. Kansas State NEA Reading Circle gave her a starred review in their “Best of the Best” for High Schools. REFUGE FOR MASTERMINDS won a 2018 Booksellers’ Best award. Scholastic licensed her series for school book fairs. Ian Bryce, producer of Spiderman, Transformers, Saving Private Ryan, and other blockbuster films, optioned her series for film.
#1 New York Times bestselling author Meg Cabot calls Kathleen’s romantic Regency adventure series, “completely original and totally engrossing.”
