Kathleen Mix

Multi-published author Kathleen Mix writes stories with a thrilling mix of romance and suspense.

She took an indirect route to becoming an author. A degreed software engineer, Kathleen consulted on applications ranging from submarine combat systems to biological research databases. But weekends and vacations were always reserved for boating.

As an avid sailor and licensed charter boat captain, the itch to sail away into the sunset soon became too strong to resist. She and her husband moved aboard their sailboat and headed south. Since then, Kathleen has spent many years roaming the U.S. coastline, exploring the Bahamas, and enjoying the islands of the Caribbean and the coast of South America.

She began her writing career with non-fiction sailing and travel articles. But she was sailing to lush, exotic islands under starry skies and walking on the most beautiful, white-sand beaches in the world. She started imagining stories of romance and adventure and turned to writing romantic suspense.

Kathleen now sails on Chesapeake Bay, but her heart remains in the Caribbean and the Bahamas. For her thoughts on life and books, follow her blog at To read book excerpts and find links to connect with her on Facebook and Twitter, visit her website at
