Katie de Long writes steamy and dark New York Times and USA Today bestselling romance. She publishes paranormal romance as K. de Long, flirty, daring contemporaries as Lila Vega, and dark, sensuous romantic thrillers and dark romance as Tiger Tarantino. Her books blend the bloody punch-to-the-gut spectacle and wit of a David Fincher movie with kink, chemistry, and edgy, angsty romance.
Katie lives in the Pacific northwest, realizing her dream of being a crazy cat-lady. As a kid, she flagged the fade-to-blacks in every adult book she encountered, and when she began writing, she vowed to use cutaways sparingly. After all, that’s when the good stuff happens. And on a kindle, no one asks why there’s so many bookmarks in her library.
Due to her own experiences as a bisexual former sex worker living with mental and physical disabilities, and her experiences surviving abuse and sexual violence, Katie is driven to create intersectional, thoughtful romance that can provide much-needed visibility and community for marginalized communities, and challenge people’s views. Katie is an outspoken civil rights advocate and sex-positive feminist, and works hard through her storytelling to tell stories often mischaracterized, stigmatized, or ignored in mainstream storytelling, in stories that still hold mainstream appeal.
In Katie’s words, “Fiction shapes reality, by telling us who we are, and whose story matters. Romance shapes reality, by showing us we all deserve a happily-ever-after.”
