Katherine Nolan wrote Aphrodite in Jeans in 2005, after an abundance of notes, blog posts, observations, and just darn good (i.e., bad) dating stories demanded to live in one place.
Katherine writes and produces for the stage and is currently working on a musical and several other plays, along with an upcoming production of Hail Poetry: The Magic and Madness of Gilbert & Sullivan which was first performed at Soka University in 2016. She also gets obsessive about bicycles and annually tackles the 545-mile AIDS bike ride from SF to LA. Thankfully she quit her day job in tech management so she finally has time to over-commit fully.
Katherine has a degree in Creative Writing from UCSC and an MFA in Film and Television Screenwriting from UCLA. She lives in LA with her husband Roger and their two cats, Franny and Zooey.
