ABOUT THE AUTHOR
In her debut novel, Summer Club, Katherine Dean (Katie) Mazerov explores the complexities of life and interpersonal dynamics that emerge at a neighborhood swim and tennis club rife with chaos, hilarious dysfunction, parent drama, and politics—and where a journalist-turned-stay-at-home-mom stumbles onto a dark fraud scheme.
The former 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, which she learned can sometimes be more ruthless than even a high-intensity newsroom.
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.
