Kate Braestrup spent her childhood in Algiers, New York City, Paris, Bangkok, Washington, DC and Sabillasville, Maryland.  Educated at the Parsons School of Design/The New School and Georgetown University, Kate originally thought of herself primarily as a writer.

Kate later entered the Bangor Theological Seminary and was ordained in 2004.

Since 2001, she has served as chaplain to the Maine Warden Service.  She is also the bestselling author of Here if You Need MeBeginner’s Grace, and Marriage and Other Acts of Charity.

Kate lives with her husband, the artist Simon van der Ven, and their six children in Lincolnville.

These days, Kate is busy rehearsing her salsa with Swing & Sway Dancing’s Christian Clayton for this year’s Dancing with the Local Stars!
