Katie Khan, Author.


Katie Khan's first novel, Hold Back the Stars, was published in the UK by Penguin Random House and in the U.S. by Simon & Schuster in 2017, and has been translated into twenty-one languages around the world. It was a finalist for the Romantic Novel Awards and shortlisted for Brave New Words, which celebrates originality in genre writing.

A film of Hold Back the Stars is in the works at studio Lionsgate, to be directed by Justin Baldoni (Five Feet Apart) from a screenplay by Christy Hall (I Am Not Okay With This), produced by Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen (Strange Things and Arrival).

Katie’s second novel, The Light Between Us, was published by Penguin Random House in 2018 and is a story of unrequited love — and time travel. She's currently at work on her third.
