About the Author

Don't be fooled by the above photo-Katie Garner knows she's a solid 7 on a good day-though her married fans might (dis)respectfully disagree. By her early 30s, Katie has already racked up an adventurous career in television, movies, and local broadcasting. Her days are filled with hours of thumbing through dozens of Direct Messages sent to her by her fans, and their wives ... er, maybe their grandmothers, too. Her enjoyment of those words of "encouragement" is what led her to compile this collection of short messages. Katie loves to laugh at herself, and she wants to pass that excitement along to the people who can also appreciate a fine compliment. Her true occupation, aside from a hopeful New York Times bestseller/Hallmark movie star, is as a Certified Meteorologist, as well as a bona fide hustler. She loves boxed wine and going on first dates. You can find her on the socials, including Hinge, but not on Bumble because she's too old-school to make the first move.

"The ending was pretty shocking and definitely not what I was expecting" --Novel Gossip

"What a book! This is what dark, gothic academia should be. It has everything. First, there is the creepy factor. Second, there are ALL the secrets. Hell, the secrets have secrets. Then there is the twist and turns." --Novel Lives

"This book was absolutely AMAZING. A must-read, especially if you enjoy reading psychological thrillers. There's a jaw-dropping twist that you will never see coming, and you'll be hooked from beginning to end. It was such a thrilling read, and I highly recommend it for your next summer read." --The Avid Pen

"Standing ovation for the brilliant Katie Garner! Captivating, ingenious, and absolutely audacious, this tour de force in structure and storytelling kept me turning the pages as fast as I could. Yes, The Night It Ended is a dark gothic murder investigation at a mysterious school for troubled girls--but don't judge, don't assume, don't try to figure it out--just let Garner's masterful sleight of hand carry you away through the gasp-worthy twists and turns. Do not miss this!" --Hank Phillippi Ryan, USA Today bestselling author of The House Guest

"A gorgeously atmospheric dark academic thriller set at a snowy boarding school so vividly rendered you can practically feel the frost freezing your blood. Garner centers female rage in the most delicious and page-turning of ways, plunging readers into a world where women's machinations, conspiracies, anger, and even violence rule all. The Night It Ended is a twisty, frantically-paced story you'll be desperate to devour all the way to the ice-cold ending." --Ashley Winstead, author of The Last Housewife

"Set at an exclusive school for trouble teenaged girls, The Night It Ended by Katie Garner is dark, twisted, and utterly compelling. Impossible to put down, you won't know who or what to believe and the creepy location will have you looking over your shoulder more than once. One heck of a debut with an ending that left me speechless." --Hannah Mary McKinnon, internationally bestselling author of Never Coming Home

"Disarmingly sensory, with plot twists that are sure to give readers whiplash, Garner has done a phenomenal job of giving us just enough information to think we know where the story is going, only to pull the rug out from under us--over and over again. A nail-bitingly spectacular debut!" --Amanda Jayatissa, author of You're Invited

"Wow. I loved this. Compulsively readable. I flew through it. Brilliant use of the unreliable narrator. I enjoyed the police interviews interwoven with the present-day mystery. It kept me on my toes. And that last plot twist...amazing. I did not see it coming." -Amber Garza, author of When I Was You

"Katie Garner's debut novel is a chilly, twisty ride--think dark academia meets Gillian Flynn. The Night It Ended is both a brooding Gothic mystery set at a boarding school for wayward girls and a jittery domestic thriller and just when you think you've got a handle on the story, Garner pulls the rug out from under you. I couldn't put it down."--Halley Sutton, author of The Lady Upstairs

"One woman's secret past informs her present investigation into a mystery set in a remote boarding school, where things are not as they seem. Full of twists and turns, you likely won't see this ending coming." --Lynn Griffin
