Kat Falls grew up in Maryland, US. She now teaches at Northwestern University, where she is continually inspired by her students’ creativity. As a member of the WGA, Kat has had four screenplays optioned by independent producers and was hired to write a script for Disney Studios based on a pitch.
Kat’s leap into prose came by way of a writing exercise. Knowing that her 12-year-old son loved reading about the ocean, Wild West pioneers, and (of course) the X-Men, she combined his interests and created the premise for a story that kept her up nights plotting and world-building.
Her first sci-fi adventure novel, Dark Life was published by Simon & Schuster in the UK and was followed by the sequel Rip Tide.
Kat lives in Evanston, Illinois with her husband, theatre director Robert Falls, their three lively children, two cats, two guinea pigs, a dog, and a snake named Poncho.
