A native French speaker and writer, Katleen always had a genuine interest in the craft of storytelling, even though she chose graphic design as a profession. A self-taught creative writer in both French and English, she won the first prize in the annual short story contest held by Montreal’s cultural weekly paper Voir, 2000 Edition.
After a Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis, she had to bid her graphic design career goodbye. With newfound free time on her hand, she discovered fanfiction, which inspired her to start writing in English. After practicing for years, she’s now ready to tell her own stories.
Katleen now lives in the woods about an hour from Montreal. Her house is the size of a shoe, her dog is no bigger than a cat, and when it rains or snows, she loses some or all of the following: cable, Internet, cell reception, and even power.
The Salvation of Judas is Katleen’s debut novel, a LGBTQ-centric psychological drama with loss and grief deep at its core.
She is currently working on the first book of her Redwater Creek mystery series about a cursed lineage. Or is it?
