Here is the current official bio:
Kathy Lynn Emerson writes in a variety of genres and under several names. Now semi-retired, after writing sixty-four traditionally published books and self-publishing six original titles, she is concentrating on revising and republishing her backlist, some of it in omnibus editions.
Under her own name, she is best known for her historical mysteries. The Face Down series features Susanna, Lady Appleton, sixteenth-century gentlewoman, herbalist, and sleuth (Face Down in the Marrow-Bone pie). A spin-off series features Lady Appleton's late husband's illegitimate daughter, Rosamond, as the sleuth (Murder in the Queen's Wardrobe). The four Diana Spaulding 1888 Mysteries feature a late nineteenth-century American journalist. (Deadlier than the Pen).
She is the author of the Agatha-award-winning nonfiction book, How to Write Killer Historical Mysteries: The Art and Adventure of Sleuthing Through the Past and has independently published A Who's Who of Tudor Women, a collection of mini-biographies of over 2300 sixteenth-century women and I Kill People for a Living, a collection of 115 essays.
As Kaitlyn Dunnett, Kathy wrote the contemporary Liss MacCrimmon Scottish-American Heritage Mysteries (Kilt Dead), set in the fictional Maine town of Moosetookalook and the Deadly Edits Mysteries (Crime & Punctuation), featuring a retired teacher turned book doctor in a Sullivan County, New York setting.
