Katie Jane Gallagher is the author of the forthcoming YA novel Specter and the online, serialized YA fantasy The Gold in the Dark. She is a life-long writer, and she strives to craft stories where relatable, realistic characters are swept up in extraordinary events. An avid reader of YA and genre fiction, she has a self-proclaimed affinity for the best sorts of trash.
Born and raised in Illinois, Katie currently lives in Connecticut with her stupendous, half-human half-neanderthal husband and their dopey boxer dog. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from Connecticut College in 2012, with a bachelor’s degree in Chinese Language and Literature and a minor in History.
