Hello! I’m Katie Bachand (lover of all things romance),
Here are a few highlights about me:
- I’m the author of contemporary and sweet romantic comedy novels.
- I have a reading obsession that can’t be cured.
- I binge bake on the weekends.
- I pretend to be Joanna Gaines when I decorate.
- I think my husband is basically straight out of a romance novel.
- I think my sons and golden retriever are immeasurably adorable.
- I have a passion for mid-day napping (though this one rarely happens).
- I pay for the Hallmark Channel…because, love stories…
- We should be best friends! (Just kidding…but also, not really kidding).
Growing up, aside from English being the only class I was good at, and writing my life story in journals, I didn’t stumble upon my career as an author until ten years ago.
Long story short: I went through a breakup and read every romance novel I possibly could. Then I found mysteries, thrillers, and fantasies until those ran out. And one day, I walked into Barnes and Noble and realized I had read all of the books. Well, except for one. Writing Romance for Dummies. ’Twas then and there I wrote my first romance novel…and with heartfelt admittance…it really was for dummies.
Yup, you read that right.
Flash-forward ten years, and what has to be millions of words later, here I am today happily married with children in a beautiful suburb of Minneapolis, Minnesota. I’m doing what I love as an author, and have a reading hobby that’s a required by-product of my job. I’m basically living the dream.
I’d love to hear all about you and your love of romance, too! What makes you pick up a book and not want to put it down? And who you are as an amazing, fascinating person?
(Yes, locking yourself in your bathroom, away from your children, to eat cookies and read a chapter of the latest book you’re devouring just to escape makes you amazing and fascinating.)
If you’re up for it, I’d love to hear from you!
