Kate E Thompson is the author of the family drama, “Bigfoot Hunters Never Lie“, and a novella, “The Asteroid’s Daughter and the Serpent Handler’s Son”.
Currently, she’s finishing her second novel, a historical, coming of age story inspired by her Danish great grandmother’s life. The story takes place in 1869 Salt Lake City when Ana Nielsdatter’s father sends her and her sister to America to join the Mormons in Zion.
Kate has many writing projects in the works, including a novel set in 1880s Utah, and another novel inspired by her Irish grandfather who served in the War of 1812 and his immigration to America. Kate’s research has led to many surprising revelations, including, an unexpected side journey that has taken her on a personal quest to find her ancestors and learn their stories.
She is fond of reading old diaries and letters and enjoys nothing more than searching through university archives and special collections. Thompson is an avid reader and has an extensive library. No, buying books to add to the more than 2500 she owns, is not hoarding! Kate is a Goodreads Author and would love it if you joined her there. She stops at all bookstores, historical sites, and museums. In her spare time, she makes handmade journals and books. She loves to travel and is planning a trip to Scotland, and another, to a book fair in Wales.
Kate posts regularly on Instagram about her work in progress, the books she loves, travel, and of course, her fur babies.
Kate’s writing companion is Ali, a rescued 16-year-old Golden Doodle, who has her own comfy bed and chair alongside Kate in the home office. Kate lives in Seattle with her husband, who is a college dean, and publisher of TwoNewfs Publishing, two daughters, 2 dogs, and 2 cats.
