At the age of nine, Katharyn Blair would sneak vampire stories past her mother at the library check-out (as a preacher’s daughter, that’s not easy.)
Born and raised in Southern California, she went to Pepperdine University and took International Studies and vocal performance, before changing her major to English. It was Stephen King’s “On Writing” that made her decide to give writing a shot So, while her husband went through his doctoral program, Katharyn wrote a novel while working various odd jobs—social media manager, Parks & Rec intern, history TA…
Her books: THE BECKONING SHADOW and UNCHOSEN, were bought by HarperCollins and published in 2019 and 2021. While working on books (and navigating publishing talks of adaptations) she branched into screenwriting, eventually signing with UTA and 3 Arts and landing a job as a Staff Writer/ Executive Story Editor on LOKI which will premiere this fall on Disney+ .
Now based in LA, she specializes in dark, female-driven genre fiction that will probably get her excommunicated. She’s represented by Daniel Vang and Jonathan Rosenthal at 3 Arts Entertainment, and Gwen Beal, Mary Pender, and Echo Matthews at UTA.
Katharyn is new to Script Anatomy, so testimonials will be coming soon!
