Five for Friday Author Catherine Kean

What was the hardest book for you to write? A Knight’s Vengeance, the first book of my Knight’s Series and my second traditionally-published novel. It was the first historical romance I wrote, and I revised it from start to finish at least seven times while I learned the craft of romance writing.

Favorite adult beverage? Sangria.

Favorite romantic movie of all time? Romancing the Stone.

If you could time travel back to any period in history, when would you go? I’d love to go back to the Victorian era and attend the Great Exhibition of 1851 in London, England.

If your pet could talk, what would he/she say about you? I have two male rescue kitties, and I’ll bet they’d both say that I couldn’t write my books without them. They lie by my computer and keep me company every single day while I work. So cute.


Bestselling, award-winning novelist Catherine Kean is a Kindle Unlimited All-Star author of medieval romances. Her love of history began with visits to England during summer vacations, when her British father took her to crumbling medieval castles, dusty museums filled with fascinating artifacts, and historic churches. Her love of the awe-inspiring past stuck with her as she completed a B.A. (Double Major, First Class) in English and History. She completed a year-long Post Graduate course with Sotheby’s auctioneers in London, England, and worked for several years in Canada as an antiques and fine art appraiser.


After she married and moved to Florida, she started writing novels, her lifelong dream. She wrote her first medieval romance, A Knight’s Vengeance, while her baby daughter was napping. Catherine’s books were originally published in paperback and several were released in Czech, German, and Thai foreign editions. She has won numerous awards for her stories, including the Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence. Her novels also finaled in the Next Generation Indie Book Awards, the National Readers’ Choice Awards, and the International Digital Awards.


When not working on her next book, Catherine enjoys cooking, baking, browsing antique shops, shopping with her daughter, and gardening. She lives in Florida with two spoiled rescue cats. Visit her website at
