Kat Richardson (born May 22, 1964) is an American author best known for her Greywalker urban fantasy series. The series consists of nine novels. In the 9th novel she states, “This is the last Greywalker novel, at least for a while.” Harper Blaine, the heroine of the series, is a private investigator living in Seattle and was killed whilst pursuing a case. She was dead for only two minutes and brought back by medical intervention. During her recovery, she discovers she is able to recognize witches and vampires, see ghosts and is aware of other elements of the supernatural world . She discovers that her brief death has turned her into a Greywalker, a human able to move back and forth at will through the Grey, the realm that exists between our world and the next.
In addition to the Greywalker series, Kat has published in other text forms and media, including role-playing games, video games, and comics as well as magazine writing, technical writing, and curriculum writing and editing. She is married and lives in Seattle, Washington, and is an advocate of California Ferret Legalization.
Harper Blaine was your average small-time P.I. until a two-bit perp’s savage assault left her dead for two minutes. When she comes to in the hospital, she sees things that can only be described as weirdâ€”shapes emerging from a foggy grey mist, snarling teeth, creatures roaring.
But Harper’s not crazy. Her “death” has made her a Greywalkerâ€” able to move between the human world and the mysterious cross-over zone where things that go bump in the night exist. And her new gift is about to drag her into that strange new realmâ€”whether she likes it or not.
