Kathleen McGowan

Kathleen McGowan's dynamic publishing career began with the debut of her novel, The Expected One, on the New York Times bestseller list. The sequel, The Book of Love, followed with a similar NY Times bestseller list debut and has developed a fierce cult following around the world. The third novel in the series, The Poet Prince, tells an unprecedented story about the birth of Renaissance art and the secrets hidden in the greatest paintings in history.

Kathleen's unique style of historical fiction combines unprecedented field research with inspired storytelling. Her books have sold over a million copies and are published in almost 40 languages while appearing in approximately 80 countries.

Her first non-fiction work, The Source of Miracles, is a life-changing handbook about prayer and spiritual practice which was influenced by Kathleen's studies of Catharism in France. It was chosen by Oprah's book editor as a holiday gift selection in 2009.

Kathleen has just released her first ebook in her series, Legends of the Divine Feminine, based on the provocative Scottish folktale, THE BALLAD OF TAN LIN. This series is a unique hybrid of fiction and non-fiction, with each featuring a novella followed by extensive author's notes on the history, research and inspirations and how each tale brings us to a new understanding of what the Divine Feminine means to us today. A percentage of all profits from theis series are donated to charities supporting women and children (see below for details).

Kathleen is currently at work writing her fourth full-length novel, The Boleyn Heresy, an explosive and previously untold account of Anne Boleyn's heretical education in France. These lost years of Anne Boleyn have been thoroughly researched in multiple languages, using sources inexplicably ignored by most Tudor scholars, to provide an exciting and controversial account of the infamous queen who changed the world.

Kathleen is a dedicated activist, and commits a portion of her time and royalties to organizations that protect women and children from the horrors of human trafficking and sexual slavery. She has teamed with The Emancipation Network and Made by Survivors to fund and participate in programs which provide shelter and safety for victims of abuse, and raise awareness of this global epidemic.

Kathleen shares her life with her partner, author Philip Coppens, and her three sons in the US and Europe.
