All About Kate Carlisle

New York Times bestselling author Kate Carlisle is a native Californian who worked in television production for many years before turning to writing. It was a lifelong fascination with the art and craft of bookbinding that led her to write the Bibliophile Mysteries, featuring Brooklyn Wainwright, whose bookbinding and restoration skills invariably uncover old secrets, treachery and murder. Her first book, HOMICIDE IN HARDCOVER, debuted in February 2010, followed by IF BOOKS COULD KILL, THE LIES THAT BIND, and MURDER UNDER COVER. Her fifth Bibliophile Mystery, ONE BOOK IN THE GRAVE, comes out in February 2012. It will be preceded by Kate's first e-novella, PAGES OF SIN, available in e-format only in January 2012.

Kate also writes romance for Harlequin Desire, and the third of her Duke brothers trilogy, HOW TO SEDUCE A BILLIONAIRE, came out in August 2011. Her fourth Desire, AN INNOCENT IN PARADISE, will be out in December 2011.

Kate is a member of Romance Writers of America, Sisters in Crime, Mystery Writers of America, and International Thriller Writers. She loves to travel and read and drink good wine and watch other people cook. She is the proud recipient of the Golden Heart and Daphne du Maurier awards, and her first Bibliophile Mystery received a Best First Mystery nomination from RT Book Review.

Kate's television credits include numerous game shows, music videos, concerts, and variety shows, including The Midnight Special, Solid Gold and The Gong Show. She traveled the world as a Dating Game chaperone and performed strange acts of silliness on The Gong Show, most notably as a member of the girl group, The Whispers. They didn't sing, exactly. They spit water on the host of the show.

Kate also studied acting and singing, toiled in vineyards, collected books, joined a commune, sold fried chicken, modeled spring fashions and worked for a cruise ship line, but it was the year she spent in law school that finally drove her to begin writing fiction. It seemed the safest way to kill off her professors. Those professors are breathing easier now that Kate spends most of her time writing near the beach in Southern California where she lives with her perfect hero husband.
