Katherine Center is the author of five bittersweet comic novels about love and family, including The Bright Side of Disaster and The Lost Husband. Her books and essays have appeared in Redbook, InStyle, People, USA Today, Vanity Fair, The Atlantic, Real Simple, Houstonia, the Dallas Morning News, The Houston Press, and the Houston Chronicle, as well as the anthologies Because I Love Her: 34 Women Writers on the Mother-Daughter Bond, My Parents Were Awesome, and CRUSH: 26 Real Life Tales of First Love.
Katherine recently signed a three-book deal with St. Martin’s Press. Her newest novel, Happiness for Beginners, was a Book Club Pick for InStyle, a Target Emerging Authors pick, a Top Seller on the Macmillan site, a Women’s Fiction Best Bet for Heroes and Heartbreakers, and a Reading Roundup pick at SheReads. Her next two books are slated to go on sale in March of 2016 and 2017.
People Magazine calls The Lost Husband, “A sweet tale about creating the family you need.” Library Journal calls Get Lucky a “thoroughly enjoyable girlish romp,” and Kirkus Reviews likens Everyone Is Beautiful to the 1950s motherhood classic Please Don’t Eat the Daisies: “Center’s breezy style invites the reader to commiserate, laughing all the way.”
