Katherine O’Neal is the USA Today best-selling author of twelve historical romances. Her 1993 debut novel, The Last Highwayman, earned Romantic Times’ honors for Best Sensual Historical Romance, and she is the recipient of the magazine’s coveted Career Achievement Award.
Dubbed by Affaire de Coeur magazine, “the Queen of Romantic Adventure,” Katherine lives for travel and has made extensive research trips to all the glamorous locations where her novels are set. “The spirit of place is very important to my work,” she says. “To me, nothing is sexier than travel.”
Katherine lives in Seattle with her husband, the author and film critic William Arnold, and their four guinea pigs—all of whom have had one of her books dedicated to them.
Foreign language editions of Katherine O’Neal’s books are available in more than a dozen countries. Her 2008 novel, Just for Her, will be published this year as a Japanese Manga comic.
