Born in California, Cate M. Turner grew up in Ohio and considers herself a country girl with a heart for adventure. But after graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in German from Wright State University, she relocated to Germany. There she worked as an English tutor and a check-in/boarding agent for European airlines such as Lufthansa, Swiss Air, and Austrian Airlines.
Always an avid reader and with a few novellas under her belt, she began The Stolen Papyrus in college, working on it on and off between research papers and exams. Inspired by her love of travel and history (and the prodding of a friend determined to read the ending), she finally finished after eight years.
When Cate isn’t writing or editing, she enjoys baking French macarons, riding her bike around the Lower Rhine, and traveling the world with her husband and son.
