Kathy Petras Books & Biography


Kathryn Petras is the bestselling author of over twenty-one books in such diverse areas as popular reference, humor, careers and fiction. After years of suffering vague symptoms and discomfort, she finally was diagnosed with premature menopause at age 38. After this devastating diagnosis, she looked for books and support groups to help her through the tough times ahead -- and was shocked to find that there was virtually nothing out there, even though this condition is increasingly common.

So she began researching and writing the book she wished she had when she first learned she was undergoing premature menopause. She co-founded an online support group and currently hosts two menopause groups on line as well as a website devoted to the condition. Kathryn is married and lives in New York City, and when not discussing the latest trends in menopause (which her friends and family say she manages to inject into almost any conversation) she enjoys reading mysteries, baking, and beachcombing at Montauk.
