Hi there!

Welcome to my website. My name is Kathy Bennett and I’m a retired police officer from Los Angeles. I now write bestselling authentic crime novels told in arresting stories.

This page is where you’ll find the latest news about what’s going on with me and books.


This website is my latest news. After having the same website since 2008, I decided it was time for a make-over. It’s a little lighter, more streamlined, and updated to today’s tastes.

In book world, I’m finishing up the second book in my Buckner series so I can send it to my editor. The book is called Damaged Goods, and features Roy and Amber Buckner who readers first met in Collateral Damage. I’m excited to continue their story—although readers are in for some big surprises.

In Kathy’s world, I’m trying to wrap up book world stuff so I can prepare my vegetable garden for planting in May. My husband and I continue with our weekly bowling outings (we’re improving slowly), and hope to have more time to spend with family now that the days are getting longer.
