Katherine Neville's picture

Katherine Neville

USA flag (b.1945)

Katherine Neville was born in the Midwest and attended school there and in the Rocky Mountains, spending summers in the Pacific Northwest. She developed an early interest in the myths and tales of other cultures like those of the Native Americans and the Mountain Men of the Rockies. From childhood she wanted to be a writer, and began writing at the age of eight.

After college, Neville went to New York City and entered the new and fast-growing computer field. Over the next five years, her work was diverse; she wrote programs for the stock exchanges and for the transportation industry, developing systems for railroads, motor freight and ocean shipping. Her career in computers and subsequent interests would take her, over the next twenty years, to countries on three continents, as well as half of the United States.

Neville is presently working on her new novel about painters, set in the sixteenth century and in modern times, in Europe, the Mediterranean and the Caribbean.

Scorpion Betrayal (2012)

Thomas Fahy
The Halo Effect (2004)
(Butterfield Institute, book 1)
M J Rose
"Dr. Morgan Snow is a refreshingly vulnerable character whose spunky decision to go undercover in the demimonde is both believable and hair-raising. THE HALO EFFECT will have you on the edge of your seat from page one."
A Far Better Rest (2000)
Susanne Alleyn
"Alleyn's command of French culture and historical detail brings the story to life.... We can literally inhale the atmosphere of revolutionary Paris."
