Biography

Katherine Center

BookPage calls Katherine Center “the reigning queen of comfort reads.” She’s the New York Times bestselling author of eight books, including HOW TO WALK AWAY, THINGS YOU SAVE IN A FIRE, WHAT YOU WISH FOR, and her latest, THE BODYGUARD. Katherine writes laugh-and-cry books about how life knocks us down --- and how we get back up. She’s been compared to both Jane Austen and Nora Ephron, and the Dallas Morning News calls her stories, “satisfying in the most soul-nourishing way.”

Her books have made countless Best Of lists, including RealSimple’s Best Books of 2020, Amazon's Top 100 Books of 2019, Goodreads' Best Books of the Year, and many more. Bestselling author Emily Henry calls THE BODYGUARD “a shot of pure joy.” The movie adaptation of Katherine’s novel THE LOST HUSBAND (starring Josh Duhamel) hit #1 on Netflix, and her novel HAPPINESS FOR BEGINNERS is in production now as a Netflix original starring Ellie Kemper.

Katherine lives in her hometown of Houston, Texas, with her husband, two kids and their fluffy-but-fierce dog.
