Kat Martin is an American published author.

Kat Martin’s full name is Kathleen Kelly Martin. She also goes by Kathy Lawrence or Kasey Mars.

The author was born on July 14, 1947 in California’s Central Valley in the United States. She attended the University of California in Santa Barbara where she studied anthropology and history, graduating with her degree. She went on to work as a real estate broker and then met the man who would end up marrying, Larry Jay Martin.

When they had known each other for just a short time, Larry asked Kat if she would like to read something he had written, which was a historical western in a yet unpublished manuscript. Kat agreed to give it a look and really liked it, which helped her fall for the author, too. It even helped to inspire her own career because after she had done some editing for him, she decided to try out writing for herself. She would eventually become a full-time author and go on to marry Larry Martin.

She has been in print since 1988. The author used to sign her books with Kat Martin, her married name, but also had used two pen names at the time. She used Kathy Lawrence in regard to a book that she put out that was a collaboration with her husband, and she used Kasey Mars for her first contemporary romances. The author has also won several awards, including the RT Book Review Magazine Career Achievement Award. Right now, she has over sixteen million copies of her novels in print and has had her books published in over a dozen foreign countries, from Korea to South Africa, England, Sweden, Russia, Greece, and more.

She is happily married and lives with her husband in Missoula, Montana. Her husband also kept up with writing and is a Western writer as well as a photographer. When the two are not busy writing, they like to go skiing and travel to new places, especially Europe. Kat says that she has always loved books and was an avid reader in her youth, while she also had her own stories coming up in her head, so writing them down seemed to be a logical step.

She also enjoys anything old and likes to visit the places that she sets her books. She also enjoys staying at out of the way inns and houses that were built a long time ago. Kat says that it’s fun and on top of that, gives a great sense of a by-gone era. Today she has written over fifty novels in the historical genre and the contemporary romantic suspense genre.
