Award winning author, Kathryn Lane writes fiction inspired by Latin American cultures she experienced firsthand during her career as an international finance executive. Her debut novel, Waking Up in Medellin, was released by Pen-L Publishing in 2016 and will be followed up with a second novel, Coyote Zone, in 2017.

Originally from Mexico, Kathryn wanted to be a painter in oils but quickly changed to accounting and international finance after she discovered the path to painting lead to a starving artist existence. To cement her ability to earn a living, she became a CPA and a CMA and worked for a multinational corporation where she traveled extensively for several years. After jetting to over 90 countries, she realized her travels gave her the opportunity to fulfill another passion – to write fiction. When you read her short stories, you may find the occasional fusion between fantasy and reality, often layered with symbolism punctuated with occasional hints of surrealism.
