Cate Culpepper lives in the Pacific Northwest, where she works with homeless LGBTQ youth. She is the author of the four-volume Tristaine series, tales of a modern-day Amazon clan, which won two Golden Crown Literary Society awards and an Alice B. Readers' Choice award. Her recent novels include Fireside and the Lambda Literary Award-winning River Walker, set in the spooky New Mexico valley Cate still considers home. She loves writing about ghosts and passionate, flawed women, but she struggles turning out a fascinating author's bio.
