Born and raised in Coral Gables, Florida, Katherine Kurtz attended medical school for a year after completing her B.S. in chemistry in 1966 at the University of Miami, Coral Gables. Deciding that medicine wasn't what she really wanted to do, she moved to Los Angeles. While studying for her M.A., she published her first novel, DENYRI RISING, in 1970. This book marked an important first in the world of fantasy literature: it was the first work of original fiction published by the newly created Ballantine Adult Fantasy line, which had been developed to capitalize on the late-'60s resurgence of interest in Tolkien's classic LORD OF THE RINGS books. These Ballantine books, and the Denyri series in particular, which has lasted over 25 years and encompassed more than 15 books, has been instrumental in the development of the post-Tolkien fantasy genre. After receiving her M.A. in medieval English history in 1971 from the University of California, Los Angeles, Kurtz continued to write fiction, but also went to work at the Los Angeles Police Academy as an instructional designer, where she stayed for 10 years. In addition to the ongoing Denyri series and a handful of stand-alone novels, Kurtz has collaborated with Deborah Turner Harris on the, also ongoing, Adept series. Kurtz and her husband have lived for many years in Ireland, where she is able to indulge her passion for the restoration of Gothic revival architecture. As a sidelight, Kurtz is also a professionally trained hypnotist.
