Author & Writer, Kathleen Morris

Kathleen Morris is a graduate of Prescott College in Arizona and lives and writes in the desert Southwest, an aficionado of American and Western history. She loves being able to immerse herself in the lives of her characters, especially bringing to life the charismatic and capable women of the West, both real and imaginary. Her debut novel, The Lily of the West, the story of “Big Nose Kate” Haroney, was published in 2019 to critical acclaim. She is a member of Western Writers of America and Women Writing the West.

“THE LILY OF THE WEST shines the spotlight on a character mostly known as a background character in the telling of the gunfight at the OK Corral. Mary Katherine Haroney is best known as the on-again, off-again companion of Doc Holliday.

“Kathleen Morris masterfully gives a first-person account of a well-educated, independent woman’s journey from the royal courts of Hungary and Mexico to the dance halls of the American West.

“This book is filled with sumptuous language and an interesting cast of characters. If you like historical fiction, you’ll love this book.”
