Kathleen Baldwin

Award-winning author Kathleen Baldwin loves adventure in books and in real life! She taught rock climbing in the Rockies, survival camped in the desert, was stalked by a mountain lion, lost an argument with a rattlesnake, enjoyed way too many classes in college, and married her very own hero. Together they’ve raised four free-spirited adventurous children.

A SCHOOL FOR UNUSUAL GIRLS is Kathleen’s first alternate history book for teens. It was awarded 2016 Spirit of Texas, is a Junior Library Guild selection, and Kansas State NEA Reading Circle gave it a starred review in their “Best of the Best” for High Schools. Ian Bryce, producer of Spiderman, Saving Private Ryan, and other films optioned the series for film.

REFUGE FOR MASTERMINDS is the third installment in the Stranje House series for young adults. #1 New York Times best-selling author Meg Cabot calls this romantic Regency adventure “completely original and totally engrossing.”
