New York Times bestselling author Kate Carlisle is a native Californian who worked in television production for many years before turning to writing.

With the publication of A High-End Finish in November 2014, Kate launched the Fixer-Upper Mysteries featuring building contractor Shannon Hammer, who specializes in Victorian home renovation and repair. The series is set in Lighthouse Cove, a seemingly idyllic town with many dark secrets hiding under its floorboards. This Old HomicideCrowned and MolderingDeck the HallwaysEaves of DestructionA Wrench in the WorksShot Through the HearthPremeditated MortarAbsence of Mallets and Dressed to Drill continue the series.
