Kate Sheeran Swed loves hot chocolate, plastic dinosaurs, and airplane tickets. She has trekked along the Inca Trail to Macchu Picchu, hiked on the Mýrdalsjökull glacier in Iceland, and climbed the ruins of Masada to watch the sunrise over the Dead Sea. After growing up in New Hampshire, she completed degrees in music at the University of Maine and Ithaca College, then moved to New York City. She currently lives in New York’s capital region with her husband and two kids, plus a pair of cats who were named after movie dogs (Benji and Beethoven).

Her stories have appeared or are forthcoming in the Young Explorer’s Adventure Guide Volume 5, Electric Spec, Daily Science Fiction, and Andromeda Spaceways. She holds an MFA in Fiction from Pacific University. You can find her on Instagram and Facebook @katesheeranswed.

Which devices can I use to read the ebooks I purchase here?

Books purchased through the Shopify storefront can be read on any device! You can access the files on Kindle, Kobo, and Nook devices, as well as Android or IOS apps. You can even read in your browser, if that's your preference.

The books will arrive in your inbox via a service called BookFunnel. They'll walk you through the process of transferring the book(s) to your device.

As the owner of a Kobo AND a Kindle, I can attest to how easy it is.

Want to test the process before you buy? Pick up Outlaw Rising for free (even if you've already read it!) here and you'll see how it works.

What's your return policy?

I offer a 30-day money-back guarantee on digital items. (That's ebooks and audiobooks.) One time per customer.

If you make a double purchase or a mistake, reach out to me at kate@katesheeranswed.com.

Unfortunately, I can only offer refunds on physical items (paperbacks, stickers, etc) if the item is damaged or lost. If there's something wrong with your physical product, let me know within 14 days and I'll get it replaced.

Can I purchase your books from other retailers?

Sure! My books are also available from Amazon, Apple, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, and all the other usual suspects.

You can find links to other retailers at the bottom of each product page, right below the sample.

Do you sell print books?

Right now, I occasionally open my shop up for the sale of signed books - typically around the holidays, or at the end of my tabling season.

Keep an eye out for more print options coming soon!

Do you sell merchandise?

We've got stickers! More merch coming soon :)
