You might know Kate Beckinsale best from her work as a vampire in the Underworld series or her role in the blockbuster film Pearl Harbor. Yet Beckinsale is much more than a pretty face. She won the W.H. Smith Young Writer’s competition twice in her teenage years and went on to study Russian and French literature at Oxford, a major that requires a serious amount of bookworm stamina. Kate admitted to Oprah that reading was a major escape for her as a child and since the birth of her daughter has taken up reading again in earnest.
Tee received a Master of Arts in English in 2008 from Southeastern Louisiana University. She has studied under Edgar nominee Tim Gautreaux, Booksense Pick novelist Bev Marshall and Clarion West graduate and World Fantasy nominee, Cat Rambo. She has more than ten years of documentation and editing experience and is currently the Editor-in-Chief at LitStack.com.
She has spent the past nine years in the corporate environment as a Technical Editor and has previously edited for Christine Rose, Phoebe North, Heather McCorkle, Laura Pauling, Anne Riley, Christine Fonseca and UF writer Carolyn Crane. With Heather McCorkle, Tee co-founded the #WritersRoad chat on Twitter.
In addition, she is working on several creative projects, including her second novel and various short stories. Her flash fiction, "Street Noises," was included in the Pill Hill Press anthology "Daily Frights 2012: 366 Days of Dark Flash Fiction (Leap Year Edition)" and her short "Til Hunt Be Done," was included in the Winter Wonders anthology from Compass Press.
A diehard New Orleans Saints fan, Tee lives with her family in Southeast Louisiana.
