Katherine Center is the author of two novels—The Bright Side of Disaster and Everyone Is Beautiful—and has two more on the way. Her books and essays have appeared in Redbook, People, USA Today, Vanity Fair, Real Simple, the Dallas Morning News, and the Houston Chronicle, as well as the anthology Because I Love Her: 34 Women Writers on the Mother-Daughter Bond.
Kirkus Reviews likens her second novel to the 1950s motherhood classic Please Don’t Eat the Daisies, and says, “Center ’s breezy style invites the reader to commiserate, laughing all the way.” Booklist calls it “a superbly written novel filled with unique and resonant characters.” BookPage named Katherine one of seven new writers to watch, and her first novel was optioned last fall by Varsity Pictures.
Katherine’s third novel, Get Lucky, goes on sale April 2010, and she is at work on her fourth. She lives in her hometown of Houston, Texas, with her husband and two young children.
