Anne Canadeo—the real name of Silhouette author Kate Little. The author of over thirty books, Anne has written fiction and nonfiction for both children and adults. Her publishers include Bantam, Knopf/Random House, Dell Publishing, Harlequin/Silhouette, Walker & Company and The Berkley Publishing Group—publishers of the nationally bestselling series, Cape Light. Over the past twenty years, Anne has published many titles with Silhouette Books in Desire and Special Edition, writing as Anne Cavaliere and Kate Little. As senior editor at Dell Publishing from 1980 to 1985 she acquired and edited originals and reprints, discovering several authors who later became New York Times bestsellers, such as Jayne Ann Krentz (a.k.a. Amanda Quick), Susan Kyle (a.k.a. Diana Palmer) and Heather Graham Pozzessere. As senior editor for Silhouette Books (a division of Harlequin Enterprises, Limited) from 1992 to 1995, she was responsible for the Silhouette Romance line and also new series initiatives. As an editorial consultant to Harlequin, she developed the Steeple Hill imprint—the company's successful entry into the inspirational market. Anne created the Cape Light series for the artist Thomas Kinkade and, under the pseudonym Katherine Spencer, has ghost-written the first eight titles. Published by Berkley in hardcover, trade paperback and mass market editions, the eighth book, A Christmas Visitor, was released in October 2007. Anne is presently working on Cape Light titles nine and ten. As Katherine Spencer, she also writes Saving Grace, a young-adult series for Harcourt Brace.
