Katrina Kittle is an American novelist from Dayton, Ohio. She is an alumna of Ohio University, where she earned degrees in English and Education. She was a middle school teacher at The Miami Valley School. She currently works at the Miami Valley Fair Housing Center on a part-time basis, which allows her time to write. She is the author of several novels, including Traveling Light (2000), Two Truths and a Lie (2001), The Kindness of Strangers (2006), The Blessings of the Animals (2010), and Reasons to Be Happy (2011). Traveling Light and Two Truths and a Lie were released by Warner Books, and The Kindness of Strangers was released by William Morrow. A softcover edition of The Kindness of Strangers was released in 2007.
Much of Kittle's work deals with large, often overwhelming issues and their effects on individuals or families. Traveling Light is about a woman coming to terms with her brother's AIDS diagnosis, and The Kindness of Strangers is about child sexual abuse.
Kittle is represented by Lisa Bankoff of International Creative Management. Her current publisher is HarperCollins. Kittle frequently appears at the Antioch Writers' Workshop in Yellow Springs, Ohio, an annual week-long high-intensity writing workshop.
