Katharine is a professor of history and popular culture, teaching courses in the history of romantic fiction, film religion, and fiction and creative writing at Duke University. She co-founded and directed the UNSUITABLE Speakers Series at Duke University on women, history, and popular fiction.
She writes publicly and teaches in workshops on women's history, feminism, romance, and writing. She is also the organizer and moderator of Facebook's Feminist Romance Book Club.
Katharine lives in the wonderfully warm Southeast with her husband, son, and a garden she likes to call romantic rather than sloppy. She loves meeting readers in person and connecting with readers by letter, email, and also on social networks!
