Author Kathy Harris

Kathy Harris is an author by way of a “divine detour” into the Nashville
entertainment business. After graduating with a Communications degree from
Southern Illinois University, she moved to Nashville, Tennessee, to work with a
well-known gospel music quartet. A few months later, The Oak Ridge Boys
began their transition into country music, and Kathy had the opportunity to help
build an entertainment empire from the ground up.

She worked her way to becoming a member of the Operations Management
Team, eventually heading up the company’s public relations and marketing
department. A lifelong fascination for books and editing led to her working as a
book agent for Oak Ridge Boys’ vocalist Joe Bonsall. Joe subsequently
published four books, including his bestselling inspirational biography, G.I. Joe &
Lillie.

For several years, Kathy freelanced entertainer biographies and wrote, as well as
ghost wrote, news stories and columns for various music publications. In 2007,
she sold her first Christian non-fiction story, “Walk on Water,” which was included
in Thomas Nelson’s All My Bad Habits I Learned from Grandpa. That fall, one of
her devotions was included in The One Year Life Verse Devotional, published by
Tyndale House. Kathy’s writing is also included in Chicken Soup for the Soul
Thanks, Mom.

An active member of American Christian Fiction Writers and the publicity officer
for Middle Tennessee Christian Writers, Kathy lives near Nashville with her
husband and their two Shiloh Shepherd dogs. She regularly interviews literary
and music guests on her blog, http://www.DivineDetour.com.
