Kathryn H. Kidd is an American author.

Kidd was Orson Scott Card's co-author in writing a novel named Lovelock,[1] the first novel of a proposed trilogy. An anticipated second installment by Kidd and Card, Rasputin, has been mentioned, but its future is unknown, especially as Card suffered a "mild stroke" on January 1, 2011.[2]

Kidd has also written a few comedic novels about life among members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, including Paradise Vue and Return to Paradise, and children's books such as The Inkeeper's Daughter.

Kidd has also written several non-fiction books of practical advice geared toward readers who, like Kidd and Card, are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. These include titles such as Ward Activities for the Clueless, Food Storage for the Clueless, On My Own and Clueless: An LDS Guide to Independent Life, A Convert's Guide to Mormon Life, and A Parent's Survival Guide to the Internet. Kidd co-wrote many of these books with her husband, Clark L. Kidd. Kathryn and Clark have also co-authored a large number of magazine articles in the Latter-day Saint magazine, Meridian.

Both Kathryn and Clark are converts to Mormonism.[3] The Kidds jointly authored A Convert's Guide to Mormon Life which won an Association of Mormon Letters Award for devotional literature.[4]
