About Kathryn R. Biel
Never one to be accused of being a shrinking violet, I use humor, often inappropriate, to deal with real life. Filled with the inability to sit still and blessed with the ability to multi-task, when I'm not writing, I'm working as a pediatric physical therapist. I can also be found dancing, knitting, watching Marvel movies, and doing absolutely anything to avoid cleaning my house. Through my stories of resilient women, let me help you find your funny.

It doesn't get more complicated than sleeping with your twin sister's boyfriend ... unless he doesn't even realize he slept with the wrong sister. But that was ten years ago and Rio Pascucci doesn't do complicated—anymore. She's as hard-working, straight-forward as they come. She put that mess behind her when she left her train-wreck of a twin sister back in Ohio. Now, independent Rio is unprepared for this twist. His name is Ian McCallister, and this is where it gets tricky.
Ian and Rio were best friends growing up. Complication #1: The friend zone.
Rio's been in love with Ian for as long as she can remember. Complication #2: Unrequited love.
Ian was in love with Rio's twin sister. Complication #3: Will he ever see her as anything but a replacement for his first love?
Oh, and then there's that little secret Rio's hiding. Complication #4: Deceit and lies.
Rio and Ian may have been born for each other but when the odds are stacked against you, are some things just too complicated to overcome?
It sounds like a line from some superhero movie, not a family motto. Except it is the Moose family creed. We even have it on T-shirts. Snazzy apparel aside, it means I've grown up with a lot of pressure to, well, be the best.
Except I'm not. No matter how hard I've worked, it's time to face the fact that I'm never going to have a career as a professional ballerina. I'll do the next best thing—I can dance in the theatre. Thanks to that eight week drama camp when I was a teenager, as well as a stubborn-to-the-point-of-foolish drive, I'm ready to take on this challenge.
Especially if it means I get to be reunited with the boy I fell in love with at that camp…
Oh no. I'm not working with her.
She broke my heart, ghosting me after the most incredible summer together. But now, here she is, and we need her to make The Edison successful. The stakes are high, and if this show works out, there's a shot I'll finally get my chance to bring the production I've been writing ever since she left me to the stage.
The show must go on. Whatever it takes.
USA Today Bestselling Author, Kathryn R. Biel, takes you back to The Edison Theater for Act Three in this powerful and moving tale of second chance love and finally loving yourself.
Once upon a time, I used to be famous. Then semi-famous. Now I'm obscure, mostly because I'm trying to stay out of the limelight, while trying to keep one of Hollywood's biggest secrets. And I'm sort of miserable. But with three weeks in the Big Apple, child free, maybe I can figure out what exactly I'm doing with my post-Sassy Cat life. I know what I want, but I don't know how to get it.
Once upon a time, I wanted to be on stage. Now I'm content to control things from behind the curtain. I'll do anything to make The Edison successful, as long as it doesn't break my one cardinal rule: don't date an actress.
But this isn't a real date. I'm here to convince this washed-up pop star to headline one of our shows this summer. Except she doesn't seem that washed up, and it certainly feels like a real date. Especially when she sings to me.
So let's make this one night a fling. A one-time thing. I'm never even going to see her again. But now thanks to a meddling reporter, The Edison needs her.
But I need her too.
This is either going to be the perfect match or an epic disaster. Either way, the show must go on!
Vision of Love is the toe-tapping, song-singing follow up to the award-winning Take a Chance on Me. This romantic comedy will have you belting out show tunes and pop hits, while waiting for your swoony happy ending.

When therapy meets theater...
Moving to the small Upstate New York town of Hicklam is the last thing Gloria Benedetti wants to do, but it's her final hope at having a normal life. After spending almost a decade as a near recluse and virtually paralyzed by crippling panic attacks, an alternative therapy might be her only shot at regaining her life after trauma. Trauma that forced her to give up everything, including a promising career on the stage.
Originally bound for the bright lights of Broadway, staying in Hicklam is the last thing Grayson Keene planned on doing, but The Edison Theater has been in his family for generations, and he can't let it sink on his watch. Unfortunately, things with The Edison have gone from bad to worse, and Grayson needs all the help he can get to save his historic legacy. He needs one successful season to make things work, and then maybe, just maybe, he can get his life—and his Broadway career—back.
As Gloria's on the verge of the health and healing she's been working toward, the one thing that will save The Edison may just break her once and for all. If she protects herself, it'll cost Grayson everything. This may be the one chance that's too big to take.
I've committed a cardinal sin in my traditional Italian family. I'm 29 and unmarried. Not only that, but I'm now jobless and homeless and moving back into my parents' basement.
Desperate times call for desperate measures, so applying for a reality TV fashion show seems like a good idea. And it is, until I find myself on the show, Made for Me, tasked with designing a wedding gown for a princess.
It's pretty apparent I'm the underdog here—vanilla in a sea of thirty-one flavors—but I need to prove to everyone, most of all myself, that I can do this. And I know I can, if only I could focus on designing instead of falling in love.
Maybe, just maybe, I can do both?
INDIEREADER AWARD WINNER FOR BEST CHICK LIT! "MADE FOR ME by Kathryn Biel is like your favorite binge-worthy television series--a fun reality show romp bursting with drama, romance, and high fashion."
READER'S FAVORITE AWARD WINNER! "This is what I think of when I think 'Chick Lit.' Light, easy, fun, funny, and something I smile about every time I think of it. It will leave you wanting just a little bit more. I highly recommend MADE FOR ME."
Erin McAvoy is living her best life. A lover of tacos, witty T-shirts, and Pinterest, Erin is always ready to tell you about her favorite thing—the animals she tends to at one of the nation's best zoos. But then there's that other thing she doesn't like to talk about: how a supposedly-for-fun DNA test revealed that Erin has a strong genetic predisposition to breast and ovarian cancer. She'd like to conveniently ignore that elephant in the room, except for the fact that unless she does something soon, Erin will miss out on her only chance to have a baby.
Up to this point, the only guy she's needed in her life was a sloth—the animal kind, not the lazy kind—named Barry. Turns out, if you want to have a baby, a sloth is not the right man for the job. Growing up in a conservative family, Erin's never even considered any other options, until now. She doesn't have a lot of time to wait, and online dating isn't for the faint heart.
When co-worker Xander Barnes—foe—or friend?—or maybe even more?—comes up with a plausible solution to give her the baby she wants, Erin realizes this may be her last chance to grab the tiger by the tail. Her family may not agree with her choices, but Erin knows that if one leopard can change his spots, then she can too. And maybe, just maybe, this will be everything she's ever wanted.
"Look on the bright side, Millie. At least you don't have cancer."
Testing positive for the BRCA gene only means one thing: Millie Dwyer is almost certain to develop cancer at a young age. After losing her grandmother and mother to the dreaded disease, Millie's always feared a similar fate. But now the twenty-nine-year-old has technological advancements on her side, including radical surgeries, that can save her from ever having to deal with the Big C… but at quite a cost.
Now Millie has to come to terms with a new normal—new breasts, missing ovaries, hot flashes, insensitive friends, and, worst of all, the knowledge that she'll never have biological children. One thing's for certain—she's never planned on trying to navigate the dating scene with all this on her plate … but on the road from loss to love, Millie finds that laughter certainly is the best medicine.
The New Beginnings Series that you loved in Made for Me continues!
I thought not winning Made for Me was tough, but arriving home to find a one-word note that my ten-year marriage is over is a lot worse. So here I am, a suddenly single mother in my mid-thirties, doing what everyone advises me to do—have a fling.
If only it was that easy.
I'm not your typical PTA mom, but then again Tony doesn't seem to be the typical meaningless fling. He's too young for me and much too cute and funny and too sexy.
I'm going to need a new attitude if I'm ever going to figure this out.
Marg won't let something like cancer stop her. Instead, she's being proactive and saving her life before she gets sick. A small bump in her perfect road. But that bump turns into a massive sinkhole when her breast implants are recalled, and she finds her husband has been cheating on her.
Now faced with health crisis after health crisis, a failed marriage, and rebelling children, Marg can no longer keep up the facade of a perfect life. It's time, with help from a most unlikely source, to realize that facades may crumble, but it's underneath it all that really matters.
Yes, I have an attitude problem. You would too if your Olympic potential career as a ski jumper crashed just as the sport was taking off, no pun intended. I'm working on that.
I also have a good-for-nothing cheating husband. Trust me, I'll be working on that too.
And now, thanks to Mother Nature, I'm snowed in at the airport. And some guy just knocked me over. I should be pissed, but he's very friendly. And very attractive.
I'm not sure he's looking for someone like me. If I learned anything from soaring off mountains, it's sometimes biggest jump can bring the best reward.
Jump, Jive, and Wail is a slow-burn, closed-door stand-alone sports romance.
And then they lived happily ever after ... right?
Not necessarily in my case. I thought marrying Crown Prince Stephan was the happy ending to my fairy tale. Little did I know that after the 'I do's,' there'd still be dragons to slay.
Namely, my curmudgeon of a father-in-law, otherwise known as the King of Montabago. He's so old-fashioned and cranky, and no matter what I do, he doesn't seem to accept me into the Royal Family.
I think marrying a prince was a mistake.
Montabago is on the brink of change, as am I. If I'm going to get my storybook ending, we're all going to need a New Beginning.
Seems simple, especially when Christine meets Patrick, the man who could be Mr. Right. He's got the right credentials: a job, a sense of humor, a love of all things Indiana Jones, and best of all, he's actually taller than Christine. But busy schedules take over and gets in the way of Patrick and Christine's budding romance.
Life interferes, as it has a way of doing, and Christine wants to throw in the towel. Is the magic of the Christmas season enough to renew Christine's faith in love?
