Born in the year 1947 in New Jersey in the USA and from where she grew up as well, Katherine Hall page, a daughter to the executive director of the Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation and an artist mother, had an older brother and a younger sister. While growing up, her family developed a passion for the Maine coast, and so they could always spend their summer holidays on Deer Isle. Interestingly, Katherine graduated with a BA from Wellesley College, by majoring in the English language and further went on to receive her Masters in Secondary Education for the Tufts and a while later, she received a doctorate in Administration, public planning and social policy from Howard university. In fact, it is college that brought her to Massachusetts where she has since continued to reside.

However, with that said, Katherine Hall page parents are known to have been descendants of Norwegian-Americans on the mothers side, while the father was a descendant of the New England. While growing up, it is believed that Page must have have listened to all sorts of stories as it was later to be depicted in her bold way of writing. However, before embarking as a full time writer, Ms page taught at a high school level for so many years and so while at it, she developed a program for the adolescents with special emotional needs, an institution with a school model that dealt with various issues of truancy, family relationship and drug abuse related issues and so those were indeed quite an amazing and a rich 5 years experience for her. In any case, it is this interest in human behavior that later on informed her writing style and content.

Up an till now, Katherine has been married to Alan Hein, a professor and a psychologist at the MIT for almost 39 years, and with whom they have had a 31 year Old son. Well, it is during Page’s hubby’s leave year in France, immediately after giving birth to their son that Page wrote the first mystery book, Body in the Belfry, a 1991 Agatha Award winner for the best mystery Novel. Indeed, Katherine is the author of fifteen previous Faith Fairchild Mystery books, from which its first books received the Agatha Awards for the best 1st Novel and with another of her book, the Snowdrift getting honored with Agatha award for the best novel. Similarly, page has also won another Agatha award for her short story, The would be Widower. She has therefore written several books from series to novels, with some of her renowned series being the Faith Fairchild, the Christie and Company Mystery not to mention CookBook, Have Faith in Your Kitchen books and novels in the Domestic X collection Avon books.

Besides, being the only author who might have won all the four Agatha categorizes , Katherine Hall Page has also been nominated and bagged numerous other awards such as the Edgar Award for her Juvenile Mystery, Christie and Company Down East to the Macavity Award and the Mary Higgins Clark Awards. Her short stories have also been widely acclaimed as nice reads with the Small Plates, a collection of short stories is currently out in various formats in hard cover to paper back and in large print, Ebook not to mention audio editions.

Being an interesting writer, some of Katherine Hall Page great works ranges from the books in her series such as the Body in The Belfry which is all about Faith Fairchild. In this book, Faith Fairchild has spent so much time in New York city that she is convinced that she has witnessed almost everything. However, the transplanted caterer and a minister’s wife was unprepared for some of things that were bound to happen in the sleepy Massachusetts Village of Aleford, and so she is so surprised by the dead body that was discovered stashed in the Church Belfry. It is no doubt that the victim is Cindy Shepherd, well known locally for her jilted beaux and acid tongue that has created a lot of bad blood and a number of perpetrators, including even her luckless Fiance, who apparently did not have either an Alibi nor a better way to cut of from the engagement. Although, Faith considers it to be quite unfair that the cops have narrowed down on the hapless boyfriend, she therefore gets out to try an unearth the truth. However, digging further and deeper into some of the sordid secrets of a certain small England village. The actions appears to make the natives in that village nervous. It is now evident that her curiosity may as well just become another death statistics in a very short order in this small town.

Another book in this same series is the Body in the Kelp. This book is all about the old maid’s puzzle. Well in this book, it seems like nothing will ever liven up Faith Fairchild’s horrible and a dull vacation at Maine’s Sanpere Island, until such a time that she purchases a beautiful hand woven quilt in an auction in the estate, designed and created by a wealthy, deceased and a dejected Matilda Prescott. Faith acquisition turns to be real bargain for sure, and more so when she discovers that this is actually a map or a bearing to the old woman’s hidden treasure. However, instead of this map leading to the minister’s wife direction of the treasured Prescott gold, Matilda’s artfully crafted clues leads Faith to Kelp covered corpse that was apparently afloat in a nearby pool. One again this resourceful armature sleuth becomes entangled in some very dangerous puzzle that is ensnared in some very complicated and twisted and dangerous threads of family greed and of course cold blooded homicide. Faith will however not be contented until she gets to unravel the whole murderous case and everything is sewn up.

These are just part of the 21 previous Faith Fair child Mysteries to mention just but a few, that are indeed quite interesting reads. However, as much as they are that interesting, so far none of Pane books have been adopted into either a movie or into a TV show besides most of them getting encrypted into audio Formats.

    I visited Maine in 1990, went to Waterstones in Portland and discovered Faith Fairchild. Between that year and 2007 I visited Maine many times Each time I bought The Body books and after that I had to rely on friends to send me copies from America until, at long last I could buy them in England, but with great difficulty! That is still the case.I like to buy books from o good book shop, such as the one in Steyning, West Sussex. They try very hard to purchase them for me.
    I love these stories and have been a devoted fan of them for 21 years.
    Just waiting for the next one. Congratulations to Kathleen for substanting them for so long. You must love her and her family and friends. At long last I hope I have reached you.
