About Me

Katie Maximick lives by the ocean in Comox, B.C. with her husband David, their puppy Old Tom (yes, Old Tom) and cat Dale. When she’s not writing, revising or researching, Katie loves walking along the beach with her dog looking for seashells, gardening, reading, and – when she can afford it – travelling. Scotland is where her heart lives; it’s just hanging out in Comox for now.

Katie earned both her B.A. and M.A. in History from the University of Victoria on Vancouver Island, as well as her post-graduate certificate in journalism from Langara College in Vancouver.
