An accomplished science-fiction writer who made the New York Times bestseller list, Kathy Tyers felt a yearning to pursue Christian fiction as a way of serving God with what C.S. Lewis referred to as "a baptized imagination." Returning to the stories she had published years before, Kathy looked at them with a new eye and rewrote them to include the gospel message and express her own deep and committed love for God.
Ensuring that the science in science-fiction is accurate, Kathy holds degrees in Microbiology and Elementary Education from Montana State University. She has worked in a clinical laboratory setting and was also an elementary school teacher as well before dedicating herself to the craft of writing. She has written stories for numerous science-fiction journals and has published six books, including One Mind's Eye, Crystal Witness, Shivering World, and Truce at Bakura which made the New York Time bestseller list.
Firebird, the first book Kathy has rewritten, is an eloquent and adventuresome tale about one woman's search for salvation. Lady Firebird seeks not only her own salvation but those of the worlds she sought to free. Her choice between two worlds has eternal consequences for herself as well as the man she loves.
A talented musician as well as an author, Kathy has recorded many albums with her husband and she also plays flute with the Bozeman Symphony Orchestra and the Bozeman Flute and Harp Ensemble. Besides writing, she enjoys gardening, bicycling and skiing.

In this sequel to the best-selling science fiction novel Firebird, Lady Firebird Angelo (Mari), who accepted Master Sentinel Brennan Caldwell's offer of pair bonding, eagerly awaits the birth of her twin sons. But her old life as a Wastling on her home planet of Netaia haunts her: her sister Princess Phoena, who hates Mari for escaping the suicide command all younger children of Netaian nobility face, will use any means to eliminate her. Meanwhile, the Shuhr, enemies of the Caldwells, step up efforts to wipe out Brennan's bloodline in order to prevent the Master Singer's (God) prophesied return of the Messiah through the Caldwell line. The innovative use of musical metaphors is highly effective in portraying God as the being who sang the universe into creation, and Mari's continuing journey toward belief realistically portrays a woman of war struggling to understand the Lord of Peace. The Firebird series is the most original Christian sf series to appear in years and belongs in every collection.
