Author Kate Gateley is proud to live, work, write, and raise children on Unceded Quw’utsun Territory. Continue reading for Kate’s full bio.


Author Kate Gateley holds a B.A. in Linguistics and a B.Sc. in Physiology from the University of Saskatchewan. Her continued areas of personal study in history, Celtic ideology, ancestral memory (and its influence on generational wounding), and the reemergence of “The Divine Feminine,” heavily influence her writing perspective.

A lifelong fan of modern fantasy, Kate has always wanted to add another story to its ranks—one with both depth and meaning. After carrying this one with her for most of her life, Kate finally set out to bring it to life on paper in 2020. When she did, she relished the way her characters emerged so eagerly onto the page, seeming to come alive and dictate exactly what they wanted to say and do next.

Kate currently lives on a small farm in the Cowichan Valley on beautiful Vancouver Island with her wonderful husband and two sons, an adorable dog, a few outdoor cats, a number of chickens, and countless bees.
