Katherine Center

USA flag

Katherine Center wrote her first novel in the sixth grade (fan fiction about Duran Duran) and got hooked. From then on, she was doomed to want to be a writer—obsessively working on poems, essays, and stories, as well as memorizing lyrics, keeping countless journals, and reading constantly.

She won a creative writing scholarship in high school, and then went on to major in creative writing at Vassar College, where she won the Vassar College Fiction Prize. At 22, she won a fellowship to the University of Houston’s Creative Writing Program and moved home to Texas with plans to become Jane Austen ASAP.

I'll Be Your Blue Sky (2018)

Marisa de los Santos
"Breathtaking. These characters are so alive and so complex, you might pass them on the street. Marisa de los Santos infuses their lives with poetry and insight - and does the same for us in the process."
Daisy Jones & The Six (2019)
Taylor Jenkins Reid
"From the very first page you know this book is something special. Taylor Jenkins Reid brings insight and poetry to a story that's utterly unique and deeply authentic, one that transports you to world of seventies rock--with all its genius and temptation and creativity--so completely it feels like you're there."

Tin Camp Road (2021)
Ellen Airgood

Book Lovers (2022)
Emily Henry
"You KNOW I love a book--and a writer--when I bust out my trusty ballpoint and absolutely maul the pages...and that's exactly what I just did to the divine Emily Henry. I could not devour Book Lovers fast enough. Emily Henry is pure delight. I'm utterly enchanted by her wry, self-aware sense of humor, the relish that she brings to every cleverly crafted sentence, and her irrepressible love for love."
We All Want Impossible Things (2022)
Catherine Newman
"Catherine Newman sees the heartbreak and comedy of life with wisdom and unflinching compassion. The way she finds the extraordinary in the everyday is nothing short of poetry. She's a writer's writer - and a human's human."
