Katharine Britton’s first novel Her Sister’s Shadow was published in 2011 by Berkley Books (Penguin, USA). Her second novel Little Island came out in September 2013 from the same publisher. She has a master’s degree in Creative Writing from Dartmouth College and a master's in Education from the University of Vermont.
Her screenplay, Goodbye Don’t Mean Gone, was a Moondance Film Festival winner and a finalist in the New England Women in Film and Television contest. Ms. Britton is a member of the League of Vermont Writers, New England Independent Booksellers Association, and The New Hampshire Writer’s Project. She has taught at Institute for Lifelong Education at Dartmouth, Colby-Sawyer College and The Writer’s Center in White River Junction, Vermont.
When not at her desk, Ms. Britton can often be found in her garden, waging a non-toxic war against the slugs, snails, deer, woodchucks, chipmunks, moles, voles, and beetles with whom she shares her yard. Her defense consists mainly of handwringing after the fact.
