Kathleen Reid lives and writes in Richmond, Virginia. She grew up in Chevy Chase, Maryland and returned there after graduation from Mount Holyoke College. Thanks to a career in corporate marketing in Washington, DC and New York City, she wrote numerous articles in trade and commercial publications, including the National Trial Lawyer and Southern Living Magazine.
While raising her girls, Kathleen studied the craft of fiction on nights and weekends. Her hard work was rewarded when she won an award at a Writer’s Conference. From there, she landed her first literary agent and book deal. Her first novel, Paris Match (2004), was called “stellar” by New York Times Bestselling author Adriana Trigiani. After that, she had the idea to write the first work of fiction about a group of women who scrapbook together and share life’s ups and downs. Her second work of fiction, A Page Out of Life was released by Penguin Books (2008), garnering her national press in such venues as USA Today, Good Housekeeping Magazine and ABC-TV.
Over the years, Kathleen has been very active in the Richmond community either volunteering her time or serving on various community boards: the Richmond Ballet Council, the Junior Board of Sheltering Arms Rehabilitation Hospital, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, the Richmond Symphony, the Junior League of Richmond, the James River Garden Club, ChildFund International, St. Stephen’s Community Outreach Program and numerous others.
