Katie Hauenstein was educated at Northwest University in Kirkland, Washington, where she met and married her husband, Nick Hauenstein. After graduating with her Bachelor’s Degree in Communication, she had her daughter, Mary, and began writing her stories. Forgotten, the first book in the Rose of Petrichoria series, is her first published novel.

In her spare time, you can find Katie playing with her cat, General Jack O’Neil, pwning her family at card games, binge watching superhero/sci-fi/fantasy shows on Netflix, fangirling about Doctor Who, attending a variety of movies at the local theater, or with her nose in a book. She also enjoys cake decorating, online shopping, and other introverted activities.
