Kathryn Shay
Kathryn Shay is an author of contemporary romance novels. She writes the Bayview Heights, America’s Bravest, Hidden Cove Firefighters, O’Neil Brothers and Ludzecky Sisters series. Kathryn has been writing all of her life. Her first “romance” was written when she was 15 – it was a short story about a newspaper reporter trying to make her name in a male-dominated world. However, before she was able to realize her dream, she took the detour of teaching. Years later, she would give writing another go and ended up selling a manuscript to Harlequin Superromance. Despite her success as an author, Kathryn’s love for teaching never went away. She retired from teaching in 2004 – from the same school she started at. Kathryn lives in upstate New York with her husband, and has two children.

Kathryn Shay made her debut as a novelist in 1995 with the novel The Father Factor. Below is a list of Kathryn Shay’s books in order of when they were originally published:
