Catherine McKenzie, a graduate of McGill University, practices law in Montreal, where she was born and raised. She is one of three children of college professors at Dawson College. Growing up, McKenzie was fascinated by the law, perhaps hooked by the TV's LA Law. She eventually headed to McGill University where she attained a law degree and now practices litigation.

In addition to practicing law, McKenzie has also written some eight novels, several of them Amazon Best Sellers. As she told the Montreal Gazette, a lot of lawyers are writers. "To be a good lawyer, you have to be a good storyteller."

You’re not making up facts, but you are telling a story. To convince someone of something, you have to lay out the facts in a compelling way. The skills you develop writing effective pleadings and delivering them are very applicable to writing. Also, lawyers are driven, they’re focused, they know how to get things done.

An avid skier and runner, Catherine’s novels Spin, Arranged, Forgotten, and Hidden are all international bestsellers and have been translated into numerous languages. Hidden was an Amazon #1 bestseller and a Digital Book World bestseller. Her fifth novel, Smoke, was an Amazon bestseller, a Goodreads Best Book for October 2015, and an Amazon Top 100 Book of 2015.
