Katherine May is the New York Times bestselling author of Wintering: The Power of Rest and Retreat in Difficult Times. A writer of both fiction and nonfiction, May has had journalism and essays appear in a range of publications including The New York Times, The Times (London), Cosmopolitan, and Good Housekeeping. Experienced by many as a secular mystic, Katherine evokes a contemplative, hopeful, consoling introspective that bears witness that there is grace in letting go, stepping back, and giving yourself time to repair in the dark. A poetic observer of the natural world, she is an avid lover of the outdoors. She lives by the sea in Whitstable, England.
