Katherine Center is the New York Times bestselling author of eight books, including How to Walk Away and Things You Save in a Fire. This summer, she released her newest, WHAT YOU WISH FOR, as the movie adaptation of her novel The Lost Husband (starring Josh Duhamel) hit #1 on Netflix. Katherine writes laugh-and-cry books about how life knocks us down—and how we get back up. BookPage calls her “the reigning queen of comfort reads.” Katherine has 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, the Indie Next Great Reads List, and many more. Katherine—a fifth-generation Texan—lives in her hometown of Houston, Texas, with her husband, two kids, and their fluffy-but-fierce dog.
