KL is the author of several novels, the most recent of which is PANDORA'S PROMISE, the third book in The Pandora's Trilogy, a science fiction adventure/romance series that takes place in a post-apocalyptic world devastated by a recombinant-DNA disaster. Pandora's Genes, the first book in the series, won Romance Times' Best New Science Fiction award in 1986.  Pandora's Children, published in 1987, continued the story begun in the first book.  


Pandora's Promise, published in 2015, features telepathic elephants and an intense and unusual love triangle. It received this glowing review in ANALOG, one of the oldest and best science fiction magazines: Kathryn Lance paints beautiful word-pictures and has a fantastic sense for emotional truth. This is one trilogy that starts good and gets better with each book; Pandora’s Promise is the best.”

When not writing, KL  is a docent at Tohono Chul Park  and the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum,  two world-renowned nature venues in the Tucson, Arizona area.
