Welcome to my website!

Dear Readers,

Welcome to the world of Kathryn Shay. I write contemporary romances that reviewers have called “heart-wrenching and emotional.” Many of my books are set in upstate New York, New York City, and surrounding areas.

You might have heard I write firefighter and teacher stories, but I cover a whole host of professions such as lawyers, Secret Service agents, CEOs, Irish pub owners, architects and police officers.

My work centers on hot, controversial: family problems, parents and children, friendship, troubled teens, school violence, infidelity and marriages in trouble, holiday stories and online dating. I hope you’ll peruse my website and get to know me (on my bio page and fun stuff) and the novels I write on the rest of the pages.

Best always,

Kathy
