Kate Sweeney was born in Athens, Georgia, and has since lived many places, including Los Angeles, New York, and Salt Lake City. She began writing when she was sixteen. Her father—a novelist and screenwriter—had died five years prior, and in writing she found a way of bringing his voice back to her ears. For the past fifteen years she has resided in the Bay Area, where she spends her time making music with her bands, Magic Magic Roses and July, and working in Education. She is also the author of Catch the Light and This One’s for You.
