Catherine Lawrence writes sensual, thrilling historical romances.

She admits to falling in love with eighteenth-century British soldiers during childhood visits to Colonial Williamsburg. A predisposition for defying popular opinion may explain her admiration for historical villains. Or perhaps it was just their dashing red coats and well-polished boots.

She studied Art History and English at Harvard and earned graduate degrees in History from Yale.

After teaching in the humanities at a Pennsylvania college for several years, she left academia for the book- and coffee-trade.  In 2001 she co-founded the Midtown Scholar, now one of the East coast’s largest independent bookstores.
