Kate Merrill Books



fiction writer

 Kate Merrill is an art gallery owner with a lifelong passion for writing. Her books reflect her love of both the mystery and romance genres. June 2020, in honor of what would have been her father’s 105th birthday, she celebrates the release of NORTH SHORE, the first collection of his poetry. Most of the 292 poems were previously published as individual works in major national magazines, but never before assembled in one book.


Kate lives with her family on a lake in North Carolina. When she is not writing, working with artists or creating unique driftwood sculpture, she enjoys swimming, boating, playing with her two cats, and allowing her strong-headed rescue Golden Retriever to take her for a walk.
