Kate Saundby lives in rural northwest Tennessee with her husband Herman. Her black and tan Coon lab dog, Jessie Mae, joined her ancestors two years ago and she's still greatly missed.
Kate also has two grown sons. The younger, Nicholas, is the talented creator of her covers and the father of three little girls and a little boy. (Don't ever let Kate get started on the subject of her granddaughters, however, because she'll never shut up.)
Kate's first and second trilogies in the Nublis Chronicles saga "The Wages of Justice, The Wages of Sin, The Wages of Greed, and Golden Silence, Dark Angel and The Artemesian Mandate" will be coming soon from Double Dragon. They will be followed by The Orion Property and Fortune's Hostage. The final titles in the Nublis saga?The Spirit Dogs of Sirius and its sequels, Aase's Daughter and The Wages of Deception?were originally released in June 2000 by Starlight Writer Publications and will be re-released soon by Double Dragon.
The forthcoming editions of the Nublis Chronicles have been extensively revised and contain additional material suggested by Piers Anthony and Steve Lazarowitz and new cover art by Nicholas Krueger and Tony de Luz.
A Circle of Arcs, Kate's standalone historical time travel, was first released in November 2000 and has been referred to by one SF reviewer as "A grand conceit for the paranormal romance fan." The sequel, A Distant Bell is now available in eBook with the paperback becoming available in July 2003.
Kate's romantic poem, "The Other Woman," was also voted #1 in the Preditors and Editors 1998 Poll.
The covers of Kate's Nublis Chronicles titles, The Wages of Justice and Aase's Daughter, and her novels Golden Silence and The Spirit Dogs of Sirius were all finalists in the 2000 Dream Realm Awards, and The Artemesian Mandate was recently granted the Environmental Life Award. The Wages of Justice was a Frankfurt Awards Nominee in 2000, A Circle of Arcs and The Wages of Greed were finalists in the 2001 Eppie Awards. At the end of November 2001, The Wages of Justice was also named the Dream Realm Award winner in the Science Fiction category.
