BookPage calls Katherine Center “the reigning queen of comfort reads.”
She is the New York Times bestselling author of nine bittersweet comic novels, including How to Walk Away, Things You Save in a Fire, and Happiness for Beginners, which is soon to be a Netflix movie starring Ellie Kemper. Katherine’s newest novel, novel is The Bodyguard, was an instant New York Times and USA Today bestseller.

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 work has appeared in O Magazine, Vanity Fair, The Atlantic, Redbook, InStyle, People, USA Today, Real Simple and many others—and has 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 more.
Katherine holds degrees from Vassar College and the University of Houston’s Creative Writing Program and lives in Texas with her kind-hearted husband, two fun teenagers, and their fluffy-but-fierce dog.
Her upcoming, Summer 2023 novel is called HELLO, STRANGER.
