Kathleen Eagle

Kathleen Eagle published her first book, a Romance Writers of America Golden Heart Award winner, with Silhouette Books in 1984. Since then she has published more than 50 books, including historical and contemporary, series and single title, earning her nearly every award in the industry.  Her books have consistently appeared on regional and national bestseller lists, including the USA Today list and the New York Times extended bestseller list.


Born in Virginia and raised "on the road" as an Air Force brat, Ms Eagle earned degrees from Mount Holyoke College and Northern State University.  She taught at Standing Rock High School in North Dakota for 17 years.  She continues to teach writing at the Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis.


Eagle's work is often singled out by book reviewers for its exceptional quality and appeal. THE NIGHT REMEMBERS was a Chicago Tribune Notable Book. SUNRISE SONG, THE NIGHT REMEMBERS, THE LAST TRUE COWBOY, and WHAT THE HEART KNOWS made the Library Journal "Five Best Romances of the Year" list. BookPage listed WHAT THE HEART KNOWS among its "Top Six Romance Picks" for 1999. THE LAST GOOD MAN was a finalist for the 2000 Minnesota Book Award for Popular Fiction--the only Romance so honored thus far. YOU NEVER CAN TELL was named to RWA's "Top Ten Favorite Books of the Year" list.  RIDE A PAINTED PONY (Mira Books, first time in paperback 10/07) was named one of the "Top 5 Romances of 2006" by Library Journal and a finalist for Romance Writers of America's RITA award.  MYSTIC HORSEMAN, the sequel to RIDE A PAINTED PONY, is the latest of her backlist to be revised and republished by Bell Bridge Book in digital and trade paperback formats. She continues to publish Harlequin Special Editions and is hard at work on a new single title contemporary novel entitled BONE KEEPERS.

    Kathleen Eagle lives in Minnesota with her husband of 35 years, who is Lakota Sioux.  The Eagles have three grown children and three grandchildren. Check out  the complete list of Kathleen's published work.
