Katherine De Lorraine is a resident of Roanoke, Virginia. She holds a MA in English from Longwood University and MFA in creative writing from Goddard College. She has taught English and creative writing in secondary schools and at Roanoke College. De Lorraine has received four fellowships to Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. She is the author of a prize-winning chapbook entitled Someone You Should Know as well as poems published in numerous journals, a multi genre book entitled Human Bridges, and a novel entitled Miss Lila’s Place.
Kat, as she is known by her friends, continues her ongoing passion for teaching, by tutoring international students and legal refugees, who aspire to higher education. Other than writing, her favorite pastime is dancing of any kind. She is an avid lover of all animals, but dogs and cats  hold a special place in her heart.

"Here is a poet that believes in a unity of spirit that binds women (and men) in a transcendent community. She has the technical skills and the energy to transport readers into her sphere of belief. Entertaining serious, witty, and sometimes wry, Human Bridges is hard-won testimony –and much more than that.” 

Fred Chappell, poet and novelist, author of the poetry collection,Backass (2004), and the novel, Dagon (2002) and numerous other works.
