Katherine St. John

Katherine St. John is the author of The Vicious Circle (William Morrow) a twisty, escapist suspense about a mysterious jungle retreat center harboring violent secrets.

“[A] fun romantic adventure-thriller… St. John effectively ratchets up the suspense and the surprises. Lushly exotic locales and touches of humor add to tasty escapism that should please fans of Nine Perfect Strangers.” — Publishers Weekly

St. John’s previous novels include The Siren and The Lion’s Den. She is a native Mississippian who spent over a decade in the film industry as an actress, screenwriter, and director before turning to penning novels.

Katherine St. John currently lives in Atlanta with her husband and two daughters.
