ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Career journalist KATHERINE DEAN (Katie) MAZEROV understands the power of stories that resonate with people, touch their lives. In her debut novel, Summer Club, she explores the complexities of life and foibles of human nature that emerge at a rundown neighborhood swim and tennis club rife with hilarious dysfunction, parent drama and politics—and where a journalist-turned-stay-at-home-mom stumbles onto a dark fraud scheme.
The award-winning newspaper reporter and editor has been a magazine writer, worked in corporate communications for a Fortune 500 company and written extensively on trends, market outlook and emerging technologies for the global energy industry. As an editor at The Denver Post, Katie was a member of the team that won the 2000 Pulitzer Prize for breaking news reporting.
Like the protagonist in her book, she has experienced the challenges of balancing career and family. After putting her own career on hold to stay home, she did her fair share of volunteering—from the classroom to her own neighborhood swim and tennis club—which, she learned, can sometimes be more ruthless than even a high-intensity newsroom filled with clashing egos and deadline pressure.
Decades after launching her career path on the college newspaper, she remains passionate about writing, expanding her horizons along the way as a wife, mom, tennis player, skier, cyclist and world traveler. She can’t imagine a world without dogs. She lives in Greenwood Village, Colorado.
