Kate Sheeran Swed

Kate Sheeran Swed is a space-obsessed reading junkie who guzzles outrageous amounts of coffee in upstate New York, where she lives with her husband and kids. She reads equally outrageous amounts of science fiction, and especially enjoys the pulp stuff. Stacked vertically end to end, her book collection would collide with the International Space Station.* She’s aiming to reach the moon eventually.

Kate grew up with her nose buried in books by Madeleine L’Engle, C.S. Lewis, Mary Stewart, and Robert Jordan. One day she was like, ‘Maybe I’ll try that,’ and the rest is history. And the future. Or so she hopes.

Kate is the author of the Parse Galaxy space opera series, the League of Independent Operatives superhero saga, the Toccata System space opera trilogy, and a quirky smorgasbord of other titles.
