She believes that love can never last, promises are usually broken, and true happiness is extremely elusive in the long run. 

He believes most risks are worth taking, the promises he makes can be kept, and love doesn't factor into his relationships any longer. 

They're both wrong. 



Praise for When I See You 
"...this book is not a fast pace 'on the edge of your seat' mystery, not an erotica, no vampires or make believe animals this book. its simply an emotional roller coaster that i highly recommend to everyone." jerseygirl - Goodreads 

"...The story is magically woven with and drew me in from the start. This isn't a fluffy romance. This isn't the book that makes your panties bunch and the steam factor is off the scale. This is a realistic love story, one that doesn't necessarily paint the characters as fabricated. I am surprised that this story hasn't received more praise and has not left a dent in the world." Krista - Goodreads

About the author

With her writing, Owen admits she has a fondness for angst, likes to play around with a little drama, and essentially toy with the ideas surrounding unintentional complications of love. She contends this began early on when she won a poetry contest at the age of fourteen and appears to be without end. Owen has an avid love of coffee, books, and writing, but not necessarily in that order. She writes both Contemporary Romance and New Adult fiction which includes her bestselling TRUTH IN LIES Series (a series despite despising 'series') beginning with "This Much Is True" and her latest release, "The Truth About Air & Water". The TRUTH IN LIES series is fan-driven. So. There will be a third book about Linc and Tally in 2015. 


About Owen's fiction...This is NOT the light trope stuff. She travels a unique, writerly path and enjoys writing dark and angsty (a "non-word" she is fond of) emotional love stories. She often warn readers to be prepared with: time, tissues, wine, Advil or your drug of choice. And, as her most favored character, Lincoln Presley, would say, "do what you must, Princess."

Katherine Owen is always writing or thinking about writing. She lives in an old house near Seattle with her family where she is working on her next book, like always, while her family wishes she would clean and cook more often. Cinderella, she is not; and she constantly reminds them of this.

Both on the verge of fame. A ballerina who lies. A baseball player who believes her. Well, the truth changes everything. 

Tally Landon is just trying to escape her tragic story and graduate from high school so she can pursue her ballet career in New York. She doesn't count on meeting Lincoln Presley, Stanford's baseball wonder, nor on this chance meeting with him affecting her at all. Adding him to a long list of one-night stands is the plan. Lying to him about her age and name is her standard method of operandi. She doesn't count on being found out, on seeing him again, or falling in love. 

Lincoln Presley's life is all mapped out for him. There is only baseball. With Major League Baseball circling their favorite prospect with a lucrative offer, he cannot afford to mess up. And, he doesn't; until he meets up with the girl he saved from the burning wreckage on the 101 on Valentine's Day months before. By the time he learns her real name and of all the lies she's told, he's in far too deep to ever really let her go. 

Fate has a different set of plans and when fame and lies tear them apart, one truth remains.

 "Here’s what I know: death abducts the dying, but grief steals from those left behind." 
Compelling and provocative, SEEING JULIA is the story of a young widow struggling to find herself who seeks only a normal life after tragic loss.

Julia Hamilton is at the precipice of her life, looking over the edge and seeing nothing. The unexpected meeting of Jake Winston saves her from reckless self harm, but their illicit connection leaves her questioning her past, her life, and herself most of all. She battles heartbreak over her loss and guilt over the inexplicable attraction to Jake. Then, she learns of betrayal by the one person she thought she knew and discovers that nothing is at it seems about her life or even herself.

SEEING JULIA is rich, edgy, compelling fiction that explores the vast toll that grief can take and all the amazing ways that love transcends just about everything else.

Please Note: Be advised that SEEING JULIA contains adult language and adult situations and is not appropriate for young readers. (Mature Young Adult/ New Adult/Adult Fiction)


Owen won the Zola Award and First Place in Romance category with the Pacific Northwest Writers Association in July 2010 with Seeing Julia. If you enjoy the tender scenes of P.S. I Love You, the poignant story lines of Nicholas Sparks, and the twists and turns in plot lines like those of Jodi Picoult, you are going to LOVE Katherine Owen's novel Seeing Julia!


PRAISE for SEEING JULIA...

"...an authentic look at grief and love. I believe anyone that has ever loved someone, lost them, and found a life and another love will devour Seeing Julia. Be forewarned: keep a box of Kleenex handy, as you will need them."


"...You get a little of everything in this book. Love, anger, angst, misery, retribution, they're all in there and make for a wonderful read."


"...Seeing Julia was everything I look for in a great book. Heartbreakingly sad, funny, enlightening, and best of all, heart mending...five stars are not enough..."

If you like dark, edgy compelling fiction with elements of love and romance, look for Owen's other works in contemporary fiction/romance by simply searching for her other novels, NOT TO US, WHEN I SEE YOU, and the Truth In Lies series including THIS MUCH IS TRUE and THE TRUTH ABOUT AIR & WATER.
