Mystery and Thriller Author Kathryn OrzechAbout Author Kathryn Orzech

Author Kathryn Orzech writes mystery, suspense thrillers set in New England “and other exotic locations.”

A seasoned world traveler having visited more than thirty countries, she’s logged the miles to prove it and puts her global adventures to work in her novels.

Strong women characters confront danger, flirt with romance, and brush with the supernatural.

Her website, true paranormal experiences of everyday people, has been online since the late 1990s with visitors from more than 50 countries and every U.S. state. was the inspiration for her psychic thriller, Premonition of Terror, when she wondered, What if premonitions from around the world predicted the same catastrophic event?

A Normal Life

Working on a new novel in her Connecticut home often begins or ends before dawn. When she’s not writing, she’s likely viewing movies or binge-watching a favorite TV drama on the DVR. Downton Abbey, Madam Secretary and The Americans come to mind, though the list is long.

An avid film fan and news nerd, other interests include history and geopolitics, society and culture, archaeology and psychology, earth science, and parapsychology, leaving few subjects off her literary table.
