About Kate Cousins:
Kate Cousins is a former Air Force nerd, where she worked with satellites and radar systems before realizing her true passion was cleaning hippo poop. She made the switch to zookeeping and worked with some amazing animals from penguins and sharks to eagles and antelope until her son’s arrival prompted another career change. Kate lives in Missouri with her family, and her writing inspiration often comes from the animals she works with or the cast of colorful characters she encountered while serving on Active Duty. These days she can be found out walking with her son, working with rescue beagles, or making to-do lists and hiding from them.
