Cat Sebastian (she/her)


Cat Sebastian has written 16 queer historical romances. Her books have received starred reviews from Kirkus, Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and Booklist. Before writing, Cat was a lawyer and a teacher and did a variety of other jobs she liked much less than she enjoys writing happy endings for queer people. She was born in New Jersey and lived in New York and Arizona before settling down in a swampy part of south. When she isn’t writing, she’s probably reading, having one-sided conversations with her dog or doing a crossword puzzle. Her latest is "The Perfect Crimes of Marian Hayes."
